How to apply for a Nursery Place

At Oakdene Primary School we organise our own Nursery Admissions. From the age of 3 children are eligible for 15 hours per week in our school Nursery. These 15 hours can be taken for 5 mornings per week from 8.45 to 11.45am or 5 afternoons per week from 12.30 to 3.30pm. We have a Nursery Waiting List, so you can apply for a nursery place at any time from the birth of your child.

Nursery application forms are available from the Oakdene Primary School office or electronically from below (please return form to school office or email it to
