Applying for a place
To apply for a Early Learning and Childcare place, you should complete an application form, around the time your child turns two years old or before 31st January each year. The nursery application form is available from any Inverclyde Council nursery or partner establishment and on Inverclyde Council Website. All children who are eligible for a nursery place are asked to list, in order of priority, up to three nursery choices. Only one application form must be submitted. Although children are guaranteed a place within either a council establishment or within a partnership establishment we cannot guarantee your choices or your pattern of attendance. Once completed forms should be submitted to your first choice nursery.
Proof of your child’s date of birth in the form of their birth certificate and address must be produced when submitting your application. Forms submitted without this evidence will not be accepted at any establishment.
All applications must be presented at an admission panel before any place will be allocated. If your circumstances change which affect the application you must inform the Head of Centre.
