Nursery Admissions

Oakwood Infant and Nursery School has a 78 place Nursery.


We offer a choice of either:


  • Free funded 15 hour places at the start of the week - Monday and Tuesday

        (09:00-15:00 each day) and Wednesday (09:00-12:00)

  • Free funded 15 hour places at the end of the week - Wednesday (12:10-15:10) and

        Thursday and Friday (09:00-15:00 each day)

  • Extended 30 hour funded places (Monday to Friday - 09:00-15:00 daily) - please note that the 30 hour places are dependent on parental eligibility.


Children are normally admitted to the Nursery in the September after their third birthday.  However, we may be able to offer your child a place to start Nursery in the January or April following their third birthday, subject to availability of Nursery places.


We have a limited number of free 15 hour places and extended 30 hour places to start in September 2023.


Please contact the school by telephone on 01332 574192 or via email at and complete the attached Nursery Waiting List Form to make an application. 


Parents are usually contacted at the end of the Spring Term to confirm their child has a place to join the Nursery in the September of that year.


Where applications for Nursery places exceed the total number of places available, Oakwood Nursery follows the same admission criteria as the Derby City Council school admission arrangements - further details can be found at:
