Acremont FAQs

How do I apply for a place for my child at Acremont?
To apply for a place, download a Registration Form and submit it to Admissions along with the registration fee.
What is the youngest age my child can attend Nursery? 
Places in the Little Ones rooms are offered to those approaching their first birthday (within six weeks) at any point throughout the academic year, subject to availability. Registration can take place prior to birth. Settling-in sessions are arranged before the planned start date.
Is the Nursery open all year? 
Contracts for Little Ones and Plus Twos are either for term time only or 45 weeks per year. Nursery 1 and Nursery 2 places are term time only.
Are nappies included within the Nursery fee? 
Nappies, wipes, whole milk and nappy cream are inclusive for the Little Ones only. We do not provide formula. Sun lotion should also be provided by parents.
Can I claim the Government funded 15 hours free childcare for my three year old?
The 15 hours funded childcare for 3-4 year olds can only be taken in afternoon sessions during term time within Nursery 1 and Nursery 2 years.
We are moving to England from overseas and my child has limited English. Can they still attend Acremont?
We do not have specific ESOL provision available in King’s Ely Acremont but we welcome children from all countries and backgrounds and have had many children learn or improve their English just by being immersed in it during their days with us.
How soon can we start the Admissions process for Reception? 
Entry into Reception is in the September prior to a child’s fifth birthday. Visits and Registration can take place at any time. Trial Days are offered prior to September entry. This will be followed by a formal written offer.

Should you require a mid-term or mid-year start in a particular Year group, please contact Admissions to enquire about availability. Admission to Little Ones and Plus Twos and Nursery is age-dependent and can happen at any time during the year.
