How do I apply for a Nursery place?

If your child was born between 1st Sep 2014 and 31st Aug 2015 parents/carers will need to apply directly to the setting of their choice. In partnership with town-wide Nursery classes, Peartree Way will adhere to the following timetable when dealing with admissions:

Nursery School

Our Nursery School offers places for 3- 4 year olds. All children are entitled to 15 hours of free education the term after their 3rd birthday. Peartree Way offers this entitlement term time only, for 38 weeks of the year. Children will be offered either 5 mornings (8.30-11.30) or 5 afternoon sessions (12.30-3.30). This ensures continuity for your child, so that they can be supported by their keyworker, make friends with others in their group and have a balanced curriculum over the week.

From September 2017 everyone who meets the criteria will have the opportunity to access 30 hours free childcare for their child. For more information see
