Starting Nursery

Admissions

Newmains Nursery Class offers nursery provision for children aged between 3 and 5 years.  We have admissions throughout the year following a child’s 3rd birthday up until the end of February. Children who are 3 between March & August, will start nursery at the new term in August.   If you would like your child to attend our nursery you can collect an application form from us or the school office.  Applications must be returned to the school with a copy of the child’s birth certificate and proof of address to be accepted.

All nursery places are allocated in line with North Lanarkshire Council’s Admissions Policy.   An admissions panel meets once a year to decide how places will be allocated.  The panel will consist of all heads of pre-five establishments in the area, a representative from divisional offices and representatives of the other agencies involved in supporting children and their families, e.g. Social Work Department and the Health Board, plus parents.

Once places have been allocated, parents/carers are notified by letter and invited to the nursery to enrol their child.
