IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT NURSERY 2012/2013 ADMISSIONS
All families with children born between 1 September 2008 and 31 August 2009 should receive a leaflet from Hertfordshire County with information about nursery admissions.
The County Council currently retains a two intake policy to nursery:
- September 2012 intake for children born between 1 September 2008 and 28 February 2009
- January 2013 intake for children born between 1 March 2009 and 31 August 2009.
This is an online application process and all parents are encouraged to use it. However, if you can not apply online, please do not hesitate to approach us and we will be able to help you in several ways:
- Provide you with a paper application form;
- Help you to apply online or do it on your behalf;
- Support and guide you through the application process.
The timeline is as follows:
20 February – The online nursery admissions process starts
1 April-Application process finishes
30 April- Offers will be published online. Parents who applied using paper applications will be contacted by us directly
6 May – You have until this date to accept places offered online

All the information about the application process can be found at: www.hertsdirect.org/nurseryadmissions
Please note that professional evidence will be required in order to substantiate parental claims for social and medical applicants. This evidence has to be provided directly to us after applying online, but before 1 April, when the application process closes.
For more information, any queries or if you need translation services, please contact the school or the Admissions Customer Services Team on: 0300 1234043.
Please note that we offer an Open Afternoon on 28 February between 2:00-3:00pm for everybody who is interested in joining our nursery. You will have the opportunity to find out more about us, what and how we do things in the nursery and school, have a look around and see the children at work, ask questions over a cup of tea. For parents not able to attend this meeting, we can make separate arrangements.
Please pass on this information to family, friends, carers and neighbours who might be interested.
We look forward to seeing you!
