Our Nursery cohort can offer 52 spaces.
We have one intake for Nursery in September and your child will attend morning sessions and have the opportunity to stay for afternoon enrichment sessions (Early Explorers).
Nursery session times are term time Monday to Friday 8:45am to 11:45am totalling 15 hours of free early education. We recommend attending five sessions per week to support with your child’s learning and development.
We are pleased to offer wraparound care places (Early Explorers) to all children attending Millfield Nursery in the morning. Early Explorers sessions run daily from 11:45am to 2:45pm following on from the morning Nursery session. This provision can be either funded by 30 hour funded provision and/or fee paying. Requests for this provision should be indicated on the Nursery application form, you will be contacted as soon as possible by the school to confirm arrangements.
Early Explorers sessions provide additional opportunities for learning and development through a variety of enrichment sessions. Please see the booklet below for information regarding Early Explorers sessions:
We are also pleased to offer an extended Early Explorers session from 2:45pm to 3:15pm on a fee paying basis for Nursery children who attend Early Explorers. This has been planned to support parents/carers with older siblings that attend Millfield as they will finish the school day at 3:15pm.
A paper copy of the application form may also be obtained from the School Office. Completed forms must be returned to Millfield First & Nursery School and an acknowledgement of receipt obtained. Being offered a Nursery place is not a guarantee for obtaining a Reception place. A separate application must be made at the appropriate time for a Reception place.
Places will be allocated in accordance with the oversubscription criteria if there are more applications made than spaces available.
Any application received after the closing date of 15.01.23 at 3:00pm will be treated as a late application and processed as a late application.
Places for late applications will be allocated in accordance with the oversubscription criteria if there are spaces available once on-time applications have been allocated.
We will hold a waiting list and places will be allocated, if and when available, according to the oversubscription criteria against the waiting list at the time a place becomes available.
We will use Google maps as a measuring tool to measure home-school distance measurements as measured in a straight line.
There is no appeal procedure for Nursery admissions and, therefore, any complaints would be managed using the complaints procedure.
Please do not hesitate to contact us should you require any assistance with your application.
