Applications and Inductions

September 2017 Intake

Cedars Primary School Nursery is a 39 place nursery with two sessions providing 78 places in total.  From September 2017 the morning Nursery session will run between 8:50am and 11:50am (maximum 39 places), the afternoon Nursery session will run between 12:20pm and 3:20pm (maximum 39 places) and the full day session will run between 8:50am and 2.50pm.

Applications

To apply for a nursery place in September parents / carers fill in an application form and submit this to the school office by January 31st.  We will accept mid-year applications if places are available.

Induction to the Nursery

Successful applicants for September 2017 intake will have received an offer of a place and details of the induction programme. Our induction evening is on 4th July (6:00pm – 7:00pm) when parents are invited to meet with the Headteacher and staff.  This provides an opportunity for parents to find out about the philosophy and ethos of the school and to have a tour of the Nursery.

Families are offered a home visit, or a visit to school, to fill in required paperwork and to meet the teacher and nursery nurse. Each child is given a start date and an initial stay and play session with their parent (in September).
