Longmeadow are very proud to support the early education of children. We are the lead agency for the four Children’s Centres in the South of Stevenage. As part of this we have a fantastic Early Years provision and are very proud of our Nursery setting and we are sure your child will make a fantastic start to their education here!

Our Nursery is led by Mrs Holly Kimble. She would love to show you around our Nursery setting. We hold show rounds from January through to March, where you can take a look at the setting and ask any questions.

We have one intake in September.

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.  Stevenage schools have agreed to set the same dates across the town for this year's applications: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. 

1st January 2018 - Applications open.  Please apply directly to the school using our Nursery application form.  Once completed, this can either be emailed to, posted to us addressed to Admissions, Longmeadow Primary School or dropped off at our school office between 8am and 4pm.

16th March 2018 - Applications to the school close at 5.00pm.  Applications received after the closing date will be considered as Late.

Please note: We do not consider applications on a 'first come, first served' basis.  All applications received within the above period will be considered at the same time and admission rules applied equally.  Applications received before 1st January will be considered as having been received on 1st January.

20th April 2018 - Offers 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.

There are criteria you have to meet in order to claim the funded place. To find out if you are eligible visit:  Or pop into school to enquire.
