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 (12:15-15:15) 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 are now taking new applications for January 2023 starts for extended funded 30 hour places and free 15 hour start of the week and 15 hour end of the week places. 


If your child is eligible for a 30 hour or 15 hour place, please contact the school for further details of the application process.


Parents who wish their child to be considered for a Nursery place should complete a Nursery Waiting List form and return this (via email or hard copy) to the School Office.


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:
