Rising 3 in the Nursery Class

Kingham Nursery class is happy to offer an opportunity for our younger children to start to explore their early education specifically targeted to support their transition into Nursery.

From your child’s 3rd birthday, we can offer childcare and a rising 3 place at Nursery, where there is an availability of spaces. Where a place is available, your child would be offered a paid place and efforts would be made to secure you your preferred sessions. We require you to book a minimum of two full days/ 12 hours per week to secure a Rising 3 place.

Applications for places, bookings for nursery sessions and more information about Rising 3 childcare places can be made through the school office.

School places

A place in the nursery will not guarantee a place in the school and attendance at the nursery is not necessary to receive a place in the school. Even if a child is in the Nursery class, places in the Reception class of the school will still be subject to application through the local authority in line with its admission policy.
