Nursery and Reception starters - September 2024


Are you interested in applying for a Nursery place for your child?


Children are able to join Askwith Primary School Nursery the term following their third birthday. The nursery is part of the school so is only open during school term times, term dates are on the school website.


We offer 30-hour places, or, if you are only eligible for 15 hours, further sessions can be purchased at £12 per 3 hour session. Children in our nursery can also attend our breakfast club, from 7.30am every morning, and after school clubs, until 6pm every evening. We are now taking bookings for the nursery for school years 2024-2025 and 2025-2026.

If you are interested in registering your child for Askwith Primary School Nursery, please fill in the form below and return to Askwith Primary School, Askwith, Otley, North Yorkshire, LS21 2JB. 

If you would like more information about our nursery, please contact Miss Brierley, Early Years Leader or Mrs Bentley in the office.
