I have submitted my application form for a place at your Nursery - what happens next?

We will be in touch with potential applicants by April 2023 to ask about your funding eligibility and for your preference on part time vs. full time places (see details below).  Nursery admissions are only processed after the March deadline so we kindly ask that you do not contact us to chase up your application before April.

Please note: if your child attends our Nursery, this does not automatically guarantee him / her a place at Reception.  You must make a new application via E-Admissions for your child.  See our Admissions - Reception web page.

Open Days - Spring 2023

Open days for Nursery have now finished.  As an alternative, we have created a video tour of our school to show you round our site and inside the classrooms.  Please view this below:

Video Tour of Burlington Nursery

This video tour was created during the COVID pandemic in 2020/2021 when in person tours could not take place.  They remain a good reflection of our provision and facilities but please note a few details may now have changed.
