Early education is for
children before they start reception class at Primary
school. Early education may also be known
as nursery or pre school, early learning.
Primary school nurseries admit children from the age
of three to four. Just because your child has a place at a
Redbridge Primary school nursery does not mean that they are
automatically entitled to a place at that Primary school. You
will still need to apply for the Primary School place. Primary
school nurseries operate during term time only of which 15 hours of
each week is free. After 15 hours you may need to pay, but you
will need to speak to the nursery.
To apply to a nursery not set in a Redbridge Primary school

nursery please speak to Families Information
