Nursery for 2 year olds

We offer 2 year olds 15 hours of nursery education each week.  There are 8 places in the morning nursery and 8 in the afternoon, with 2 qualified staff to support these children.

Applying for a place in our 2 year old Nursery provision

If your child was born between 1 September 2021 and 31 August 2022, you are able to apply for a place at our 2 year olds Nursery to start in September 2024.  We only admit children in September and your child must be at least 2 years old on 1 September 2024 to join our 2 year olds Nursery.

Nursery admissions are processed by the school itself.  We operate an online applications portal through which you can apply for our 2 year olds Nursery.  You will need to enter a few basic details to set up a parent account on the portal.  You will then receive an email confirming the parent account set up and giving you access to the application form for 2 year olds Nursery.  Here is the link for the applications portal:

APPLY HERE: 2 year old Nursery Applications 2024-25

This portal allows you to save progress and return to the application form as many times as you like.  There is also the option to translate the application form into your own language if that helps.  The deadline for Nursery applications is Friday 1 March 2024 so please ensure you have completed and submitted the application form by this date.  Applications received after this date will still be accepted but will be placed on a waiting list and processed only if and when spaces become available.

If you have any questions regarding the 2 year olds Nursery admissions to our school, please contact the Admissions Officer at admissions@burlingtoni.org.uk

I have submitted my application form for a place at your 2 year olds Nursery - what happens next?

We will be in touch with potential applicants by April 2024 to ask about your funding eligibility (see details below) and your preference on morning vs. afternoon places.  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.
