* Due to early closure at the end of each main term there is no Nursery PM session, but the AM will operate as normal.

Applying for Nursery Places

Our aim is to ensure access and entitlement to the benefits of a high quality child centered nursery education on a fair and equitable basis. 

We have 68* spaces available in our Nursery based on 2 sessions per day: 34 children in the morning session and 34 in the afternoon. The government funds children for 15 hours per week. 

Our Nursery is available to children from age 3-4. We have a major intake of pupils in September who will turn 4 during that academic year. We stagger the intake over the first 2 - 3 weeks of term to allow for a smooth transition for each of our young people. 

Applications should be given directly to the academy:

Allocation of preferred sessions

Parents will be asked to give preferences with regards to the session options when they apply for a place. Account will be taken of any preference for session options expressed by parents, but preferences will be allocated subject to availability and are not guaranteed. If the preferred session is unavailable, the child will be offered an alternative session.

Applying for Reception Places

Applications for Reception places should be made via the local Council. If you wish to apply for a place at Oasis Academy Ryelands in Reception - Year 6, please contact Croydon Council Primary Admissions on 020 8726 6400, or visit their website.
