Nursery Admissions

Nursery Admissions 


Places in nursery are dealt with directly by the school using the same criteria as for admissions to the Infant School as detailed above.  You should apply directly to the school either by contacting the school office on 01895 630 262 or by downloading the Nursery Application Form.


Children generally start Nursery in the September after their 3rd birthday and will be offered either a Thirty Hour provision (if eligible), five morning places a week or five afternoon places a week.

As soon as your child is 3 years of age we welcome you to apply for a nursery place and if places are available we will contact you to ask if you would like an early start.


We accept applications for the Nursery when your child is over the age of two. 


Nursery timings:

30 Hours - 8.45am to 2.35pm

(drop off from 8.35am)


Extended day (payable service) from 2.35pm to 3.20pm


AM - 8.45am to 11.45am

(drop off from 8.35am)

PM - 12.25pm to 3.25pm

(Collection from 3.20pm)


Within our Nursery admission’s, we provide a number of 30 hour places. We ask that at the time of your initial nursery application you indicate that this facility is of interest to you. When nursery place offers are made, we offer 30 hour places first, whilst keeping in line with the Hillingdon borough’s criteria. Parents need to prove their eligibility for this provision by applying for a specific code via the government’s website.


In the first instance, we will:


  • Offer places of 30 hours free entitlement with an option to pay for the Extended nursery day from 2.35pm - 3.20pm to keep in line with the normal end of school timings. Along with our Kingfisher Afterschool club (3.30 - 6.00pm)

  • Expect that all the 30 hours will be taken at Whiteheath Nursery.

  • Provide snacks and drinks during the day but expect families to provide a packed if the child is in school all day

  • If a child is offered a 30 hour place and the eligibility code is not received within an agreed timescale the place will be withdrawn and offered to the next family on our waiting list

  • Any remaining places will be offered to AM and PM requested places


A place in the Nursery does not guarantee a place in the Infant School.


Parents of children in the Nursery MUST apply for an infant school place

through their Local Authority.
