Admissions

Nursery for 3-4 year olds

Applying for a place in Nursery (3+ years)

If your child was born between 1 September 2020 and 31 August 2021, you are able to apply for a place at our Nursery to start in September 2024.  We only admit children in September and your child must be at least 3 years old on 1 September 2024 to join our Nursery. 

If your child is only 2 years old, please click here for details of our limited 2 year old Nursery provision.

Nursery admissions are processed by the school itself. To find out more about applying for a nursery place, please visit the borough's website with links below:

School Nursery Classes and Maintained Nursery Schools: how to apply

We operate an online applications portal through which you can apply for our 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 Nursery.  Here is the link for the applications portal:

APPLY HERE: 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 in to 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 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 Nursery - what happens next?

We will be in touch with potential applicants by April 2024 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 2024

We are holding open days for parents of children who are interested in joining our school for Nursery in September 2024.  This will include a talk from our Headteacher, Mrs Yay Walker, a Q+A session and a tour of our Nursery.  The visit will take about 60 minutes.  The dates and times for our last 2 open days are: 

Monday 26 February - 9.15am

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.
