Haydn Nursery Admissions

If you wish to apply for a place for your child to join us, Nursery admissions are dealt with directly by us through our School Office.


We have 39 places for both our morning (8.45-11.45am) and afternoon (12.15 -3.15pm) sessions. If places are available, children can start in the September after their third birthday and they are entitled to 15 hours of free Nursery education. Children attend either 5 mornings or 5 afternoons a week to ensure continuity and help prepare them for regular school attendance. Parents can express a preference for either the morning or afternoon session; we will try to accommodate this, but we cannot guarantee that your preference will be granted as we have to ensure that we have the correct staff ratio to children.


We are also able to offer 30 hours government funded places to eligible families. The 30 hours are spread over 5 days a week and are in line with the school day (8.45am–3.15pm).


Please note that we require your code by the following dates:


  • August 31st for an Autumn Term start
  • December 31st for a Spring Term start
  • April 30th for a Summer Term start


Places are allocated against the following criteria in the order below:


  • Children who are looked after by Nottingham City Council.
  • Children who live within the catchment area after their third birthday.
  • Children who live outside the catchment area after their third birthday with siblings in the school.
  • Children who live outside the catchment area after their third birthday.


To apply for a place, application forms are available from the School Office.


Please be aware that attendance of our Nursery is not a criteria that is taken into account when it comes to applying for a school place in Reception.
