School Admissions & Open Days



Commencing 1 September 2017 admission to Heath Lane Nursery School will no longer be dealt with centrally at Hertfordshire County Council.  If you would like a place at our nursery you will need to apply to us directly.  


From this date our Governors will also be responsible for setting our own Admissions Policy. The Admissions Policy was approved by the Full Governing Body at the end of November and can be viewed under the 'Policies' section of our website.


Four open days have taken place in the Autumn Term and the following Open Days have been agreed for the Spring Term 2018, with a choice of a 9.30am visit or a 1.30pm visit.


Thursday 18 January 2018

Tuesday 6 February 2018

Wednesday 21 February 2018

Monday 12 March 2018

Friday 23 March 2018


In addition, we will be having an Open Afternoon on Saturday 10 March 2018, where you will be able to drop in between 1.00pm and 3.00pm.


If you would like to book on to one of these visits please contact the office on 01442-255418, or email .


For children born between 1 September 2014 and 31 August 2015, parents will be able to apply directly to Heath Lane Nursery School for a place.  The window for applying for a nursery place will be between Thursday 1 February and Thursday 29 March 2018. 


A copy of the application form is available below.  This can either be completed and emailed as an attachment, or printed off and handed in to the school office, between the 1 February and 29 March 2018.  Hard copies of this form will be available in the school office. 


The school office will provide you with receipt of your application.  If you are not given a receipt please do request one.


Places will be allocated, based on criteria detailed in our Admissions Policy.


Parents will be notified on Tuesday 24 April 2018 if they have been successful in gaining a place at Heath Lane Nursery School.  The deadline for accepting a place for your child will be Tuesday 1 May 2018 by Midday.


Please note if your child will be 3 between 1 January and 31 March 2018 there is some availability for your child to join us after Easter.  You will still need to complete an application form.  If you are interested in a space for your child after Easter please contact the school office.
