Nursery Enrolment

Fife Council offer Early Learning and Childcare to all 3 and 4 year olds from the first intake after their qualifying birthday until they’re due to start school.

How do I apply for a nursery place?

Please complete an online application.

This is an easy process that can be done from your smart phone, iPad or laptop. You’ll be asked to create a ‘myaccount’ if you don’t already have one. You’ll need this account right the way through your child’s education.
