Nursery Places:

To apply for a place in our Nursery please complete the Nursery Admission Form, available from the office or as a linked document on this page. We take children from the start of the term following their 3rd birthday. We also offer places under the 30Hr scheme for qualifying parents. Popular patterns fill up quickly, so we can’t guarantee that you’ll get the attendance pattern that you want, but we do our very best to accommodate everyone!

We have 3 intakes per year – most of the places are taken in the September intake, with fewer places available for the spring and summer terms. When we are oversubscribed we use Gateshead Council’s oversubscription criteria as a guide in making the decision about allocating the place.

If you would like a look round before deciding about applying for a place here (for any age of child at any time of year) then please don’t hesitate to get in touch with the main office. We’ll arrange for you to have a little tour.
