Nursery school admissions
Primary schools in Neath Port Talbot offer part time nursery provision.
When can children start nursery
Children can access a part time nursery place from the start of the term following their third birthday or the day after their 3rdbirthday providing there is sufficient room in the nursery.
Attendance at a Nursery Class does not automatically entitle a child to a reception class place in the same school. A separate application will have to be submitted for admission to the reception class at the school you wish your child to attend.

- 1st September 2024 and 31st August 2025
will be available from the Admissions Team from 2nd October 2023.
The application forms must be returned by 15th March 2024.
