Starting nursery

Your child can go to a Bexley school nursery from the term after they turn 3. Most children will start in September, but some might start in January. We take applications for both start dates at the same time.


The nursery application round for September 2021 has now closed. Nursery offer day is Monday 17 May 2021 and parents/carers will be advised on the outcome of their application on that day and will have two weeks to respond to their offers, all responses should be sent to the London Borough of Bexley by Monday 31 May 2021.

Any applications or enquiries need to be sent to the School Admissions team.
