Admission to the nursery

We are currently in the process of offering places for September 2023

Please click here to register your child with the nursery.

Children are usually admitted to the nursery in the term of their third birthday when they are at least 2 years 9 months old. The majority of children are admitted in the Autumn Term with a few children starting in the Spring Term.  We do not offer places starting in the Summer Term as it is not financially sustainable for the nursery to leave sessions empty for the Autumn and Spring terms. Children with May, June, July and August birthdays will normally be offered a place to begin in the Autumn Term following their third birthday.

Whilst our setting participates in free entitlement for two, three and four year olds this does not guarantee the availability of a place. We have a limited number of funded hours we can accept to keep our Nursery financially viable.

Due to the changes in government funding we are finding that more parents are eligible for the 30 hour free childcare (although we are only open 27 hours a week).

Therefore prior to joining our nursery we need to be aware of your requirements in order to manage your expectations of what we can provide.

Places are allocated in order of date of registration in each age group category.  As the nursery is often over-subscribed we recommend registering your child early, and also at one or more other pre-school settings, to avoid disappointment.

You can only apply for a place at this nursery by using the online registration form. (Use the link at the top of this page)

You are not able to apply for a place through the Hertfordshire on line system.

You can contact us by email  enquiries@rickmansworthnursery.com   or on 07933 768 144.
