Applying for a Place

Admission to the nursery is on a "first come, first served" basis taking into account the mix of ages and the balance of staff and student parents at any one time. We can accomodate children from the age of 3 months until school age - please see Aberdeen City Council website for school details.

Anyone interested in applying for a place should complete and return the application form by email or post it to the nursery.  Email: rockinghorsenursery@abdn.ac.uk

We cannot guarantee that a place will be available when you want it, but the earlier you apply, the better.
