Nursery Enrolment in Aberdeen City
If your child was born between March 2016 and February 2018 they are entitled to an Early Learning and Childcare place during 2020/21.
A child may start nursery in the school term after his/her third birthday. The Standards in Scotland’s Schools etc. Act 2000 defines the three school terms as follows:
- Term 1: August to December
- Term 2: January to March
- Term 3: April to July
Children are entitled to an early learning and childcare place in the school term following their third birthday. Children in their immediate pre-school year are entitled to a whole year of Early Learning and Childcare.
|Month of birth||Entitled to a place from|
|March to August||August – after the summer holidays; children may start once they have reached the age of three|
|September to December||January – after the Christmas holidays|
|January to February||April – after the Easter holidays|
For Nursery places in Aberdeen City schools, application forms are available in all primary schools with a nursery class between 27th January and 7th February.
Completed forms should be returned to schools by Friday 7th February 2020.
Late applications will be accepted throughout the school session, but this will reduce your chance of your child being offered a place.
To apply, visit the nursery along with proof of date of birth for your child, as well as proof of address, and complete the application form. You can include up to three choices of nursery.
