As Staffordshire County Council no longer administers Nursery admissions you will need to apply directly to us for a place.  Applications formally open on Monday 16th January 2023, however we can add your details to our waiting list so we can contact you as soon as the admission process begins.

We highly recommend you come and see our wonderful nursery for yourself by booking a tour with Mrs Tapp.  In the meantime, please take a look at our short video below to get a flavour of our wonderful school.

You are welcome to ring the school with any questions you may have and to request a tour on 01889 228700.
