Admission Arrangements

Nursery Admission Arrangements


Applecroft Nursery offers one intake per year – this being the September of the academic year when your child turns 4 years old. An academic year runs from September to the following August.


We can currently admit a maximum of 60 part-time children on a term time only, Monday to Friday basis.


The 60 part time places available are allocated as follows:

  • 30 part-time 15-hour places (mornings or afternoons)
  • 15 full-time 30-hour places


Part time 15 hour places are funded either from 15 hours of free early education funding or as part of the 30 hours free childcare entitlement for those parents/carers who meet eligibility requirements.


The majority of our full time places are allocated to those parents/carers eligible for 30 hours free childcare. However, if we have not allocated all our full-time places we are able to offer parents/carers the opportunity to fund an additional 15 hours.


In addition to the options above we also offer, to those taking up a part-time place, an opportunity to attend lunch club sessions running from 11.30am to 12.30pm.


Please note that we do not offer split provision of the 15 hours of free early education.
