Nursery Admissions

Oakwood Infant and Nursery School has a 78 place Nursery.


We offer a choice of either:


  • Free 15 hour places at the start of the week - Monday (full day), Tuesday

        (full day) and Wednesday (morning only)

  • Free 15 hour places at the end of the week - Wednesday (afternoon only),

        Thursday (full day) and Friday (full day)

  • Extended 30 hour places (full days Monday to Friday) dependent on 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 places.


Parents who wish their child to be considered for a Nursery place should complete a Nursery Waiting List form and return this to the school office.


Parents are usually informed by text message around Easter time if their child has a Nursery place for the following September.


Where applications for Nursery places exceed the places available, the school follows the same criteria as Derby City Council school admission arrangements.
