Nursery Admissions for September 2019

**** for children born between 01/09/2015 - 31/08/2016 ****

Longmeadow are very proud to support the early education of children. 

We have one intake in September 2019.

Please note that we run separate morning and afternoon sessions on a full time basis (i.e. attending for half the day, all week). Your child will be allocated to either morning or afternoon if your application is successful - We do not currently offer part time places.

We are also really excited to begin offering full day places to parents in receipt of the government's new 30 hours funding from September 2018!  For more information and to find out if you are eligible visit

Nursery admissions are managed by the school.  Places are in high demand for our Nursery setting. Please take a look at our oversubscription criteria which will give you an understanding of how we select pupils who apply and how we offer places if there are more applicants than places.

From October 2018 Stevenage schools will be allocated on a  first come first serve basis for entry into the nursery class

From October 2018 Stevenage schools will be allocated on a  first come first serve basis for entry into the nursery class

19th April 2019 - Offers & information letters will be emailed/posted out to parents for our new Nursery starters.

If you are looking for a nursery place before September 2018, please contact the school office on 01438 351087 to find out if we have any places.

From September 2018  we will be able to offer 30 hours childcare for 3 and 4 year olds.

The difference now is that some families will be entitled to additional Government funding for the 30 hours.  If you are not entitled to the funding, you can still choose to pay for more hours than the 15 free hours you are currently entitled to.

A 30 hours free childcare checklist has been developed for parents which covers some frequently asked questions, deadlines and when they can access the entitlement.

There are criteria you have to meet in order to claim the funded place. To find out if you are eligible click here.
