Nursery entry (3+)

Children join our Nursery from the age of 3 years and turn age 4 during their academic year in Nursery (September - August).

We are delighted to announce that we will be moving our current Nursery provision to a new state of the art site in Aldenham Village, due to open for this September 2017. We will shortly be starting extensive renovations on the former Rexton House Nursery building to convert it into a purpose designed Pre-School specifically for 3-4 year olds. The work is being managed by an experienced Early Years designer in conjunction with the school architects and will ensure that our youngest pupils enjoy a modern, innovative and age-appropriate learning environment.

For entry in September 2017 there are up tp 40 places available in our Nursery. Entry is selective and involves a 3+ Assessment.

We have now completed our 3+ Assessment for entry in our Nursery in September 2017. We are running a waiting list so please contact Admissions if you would like to add your child's name to our list. 

At our 3+ Assessment we invite children to participate in a number of age-appropriate activities in small groups, split by age. During the 30-minutes session the children are observed by our teaching staff and offers of places are made on the basis of this assessment. 

Applying for Nursery:

Stage 1
Contact Mrs Morrison, Marketing and Admissions Manager, for an initial conversation and to add your child's details to our list for Nursery entry. She will be able to send you a prospectus or you can request a prospectus online.

Step 2
Arrange to visit Edge Grove to tour the school. Open Mornings are held twice a term and no pre-booking is necessary. Click here to view the next Open Morning dates. Alternatively small group tours of the Pre Prep are available every Wednesday morning at 9.30am, led by Mrs Gill Emmerson, Head of Pre Prep. These tours must be pre-booked with Admissions so please contact Mrs Morrison if you would like to book a small group Wednesday morning tour, by emailing or calling 01923 855724. 

Step 3
Following your visit, you will need to register your child for a place at Edge Grove. You can download the registration form here and post it or email it to Admissions. The non-refundable £100 registration fee can be paid via cheque or bank transfer and the details are on the registration form. 

Step 4
You'll be invited to attend the 3+ Assessment for your child's year group and beforehand we will also contact your child's current Nursery (if applicable) for their confidential feedback. 

Step 5
Following the assessment, if your child is offered a place you will be asked to accept it within two weeks by paying the non-returnable £1,000 deposit to secure the place. Your child may be added to a waiting list and you will be notified if/when a space becomes available.
