Children's Centre Admissions

All you need to know about applying for a place in our Children’s Centre and Nursery

Prior Weston School and Children’s Centre is in the London Borough of Islington. We work to the Islington Council’s Admissions Policy, and our fee charges are set by Islington Council.

Application forms can be collected from the Reception desk or downloaded below. Once the form is completed, please return it to the Reception desk. Places are offered to children on the application list according to the Council’s admissions policy. Siblings are priority followed by distance to the Centre. We do not operate a waiting list. The Centre will contact you by phone/email if your child is allocated a place. 

Admissions are on a rolling cycle therefore once a child has a birthday and a place becomes available, all applications are considered. It is not possible to give indications as to the availability of places in advance of allocation. If you have any further questions, regarding admissions or prices of nursery places please contact Lily Seatory our Children’s Centre administrator.

If and when we offer you a place, we will also offer you a home visit. This is an excellent     opportunity for you and your child to meet their key person and for us to get to know you both in a place where your child feels confident.
