Nursery Admissions

We have a Nursery here at Myatt Garden and we offer places for children from age 3.

We have two intakes per academic year, a September intake and a January intake. Your child will have 3-5 terms in Nursery depending on which month their birthday falls in:

  • September-December = January intake
  • January – August = September intake

For Nursery we provide the government entitlement of 15 hours per week.

We have two Nursery sessions, a morning session and an afternoon session.

  • Morning session – 9.00am-11.30am
  • Afternoon session – 12.45pm-3.15pm

If you are offered a place your child will be able to attend for 5 morning sessions plus 1 afternoon session, or 5 afternoon sessions and 1 morning session, equating to 15 hours of free education. On the day that your child has a double session, we offer a lunchtime club facility. There is a charge of £4.85 per session which must be paid half termly in advance. You will need to provide a packed lunch for your child.

We recommend that you put your child’s name on the waiting list when they are age 2 ½ . All you need to do is fill out a basic application form which you can get from the school office (no proofs will be required until a place is offered).

The school is in charge of our Nursery admissions and our Nursery places are offered based on distance to the school. Children in care and current school siblings are given priority over places.

The Myatt Garden Nursery admission procedure is in accordance with the guidance provided by Lewisham Council.

Lewisham Admissions – Nursery

Please note that you can only accept a place at one Nursery and that the offer of a place in the Nursery does not guarantee a place in the reception class.

Please come and visit us to have a look around the Nursery and ask any further questions.

If you wish to apply for a school place for your child from Year 1 – Year 6 you will have to apply through Lewisham Council. This is called an ‘in-year admission’.
