Admissions Information

Thank you for your interest in Ballyclare Nursery School. For further information about applying for a place for your child please have a look at information on this page. If you would like any other information then please contact us and we will be happy to help.

When is my child due to start Nursery School?

Your child needs to have had their 3rd birthday before the 1st July in order to start Nursery School in the following September. The application process generally opens around the beginning of January the year your child is due to start. This is now done online on the Education Authority Website. Further information will be available around the time the application process begins. We also hold an ‘Open Afternoon' in December, so that you may bring your child to visit and look around our school. You will also be able to get further information about applying for a place. Please keep an eye on our ‘School Website’ during November for more information regarding applying for a place for your child and for the date of our ‘Open Afternoon’
