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 52* spaces available in our Nursery based on 26 children in each session. The government funds children for 15 hours per week and for certain children/families, 30 hours.

Our Nursery is available to children from age 3-4. We have a major intake of pupils at the start of each term. We stagger the intake over the first 2 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/carers will be asked to give preferences with regards to their session options when they apply for a place. Account will be taken of any preference expressed by parents/carers, 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.
