Nursery Admissions - Frequently Asked Questions

How do I apply for a Nursery place?

To apply for a place at Grange Nursery, you need to make an application directly to the school office. Children are eligible to attend our Nursery after their 3rd birthday.

Application forms can be requested by contacting the school office on 020 8567 1432 or via email: admin@grange.ealing.sch.uk


What are the criteria used for Nursery Admissions?

Admission to a nursery class does not guarantee a place in a Reception Class.


Places are offered on the following criteria:


1. Children who are looked after or were previously looked after children


2. Children who appear to have been in state care outside of England


3. Siblings. Children with a brother or sister who will be attending the main school (not the nursery class) at the time of admission. 


4. Distance from home to school Places are allocated to applicants who live closest to the school measured by straight-line. 


We have members of staff, 1 teacher and at least 3 fully qualified early years practitioners. The ratio of adults to children is at least 1:13


What will my child learn at nursery?

Staff plan using the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework as set out by the Department for Education.  Learning is sequenced and carefully planned out.  We have curriculum maps, progression frameworks and unit overviews.  All nursery curriculum information can be found on our school website.

There are 3 Nursery session times
