Pre-school Admissions Guide

Although pre-school isn't compulsory it has benefits. Our guide will help you understand more about the process and what to expect when applying for a place in pre-school for your child.

Applying for a Pre-School place in the school year September 2019 - June 2020

  • If your child is born on or between 2 July 2015 and 1 July 2016 they will be in their target pre-school and you will be eligible to apply for admission to either a Nursery School or Nursery Unit or Playgroup for the school year 2019-2020. 
  • If funded places are still available after target age children are admitted then underage (penultimate) children born on or between 2 July 2016 and 1 July 2017 may also be admitted.  If your child falls within this age group you will be eligible to apply to only a Nursery School or a Nursery Unit.
  • If your child is under 2 years old click here for information.
