Pre-Nursery & Nursery
Children are eligible to join at the point when they become two years and six months old.
Typically, parents will visit the school either during an Open Morning or a Show Round. The next procedure is to fill in an Application for Admission form and submit it to the school with the £150 registration fee. This can be done via the Admissions section of the school website. All children entering Pre-Nursery or Nursery at Rosemead are invited for an informal play session and the Admissions Registrar will make arrangements for this.
Dates and timing of play session
Pre-Nursery: Our Pre-Nursery informal play sessions take place in the term prior to entry. These play sessions will be arranged on a mutually convenient basis.
Nursery: This year, our Nursery 3+ play sessions will take place on several dates during January 2024. Please note that we also, typically, arrange additional play session dates later in the Spring and Summer Terms, depending on place availability.
What do the children need to bring?
If your child has any specific medication, please bring this with you on the day. Children will need their coats for outdoor play.
What will happen during the play session?
Upon arrival at 9.30am, you will be greeted by the Head of Pre-Prep, who will take you and your child through to the Nursery classroom. Your child will be able to access the exciting learning opportunities on offer to our current Nursery children. Staff will play and interact with your child and observe them playing with or alongside others. Outside play will be a part of the morning, as well as a fruit snack and story time. The morning will finish at 11.00am. You would be very welcome to stay with your child for this play session. For Nursery applicants you can also go and come back if you feel your child is settled.
Offer letters will be posted within a week of the play session.
Offer reply date
