How to apply for a nursery place for a 3 or 4 year old

How to apply

Contact us for an application form.


Phone: 0141 577 3288 or 3265.

Closing date

You should apply for a place in the next school session no later than the last day of February of that year.

For example, if your child should start nursery in the 2019/2020 term, you should apply by 28 February 2019.

Places for late applications are limited. We'll process these after we allocate places to those who applied by the closing date.

Funding for a partnership nursery or playgroup

To apply contact the nursery or playgroup direct.

You must register your child with the nursery or playgroup by 30 April of the school year they'll start.

You won't qualify for funding if you apply after this date.

The nursery or playgroup will contact you direct to let you know if you're successful for funding. If you've been unsuccessful and live in East Renfrewshire, we'll offer you an ERC nursery place.
