Nursery school admissions
Primary schools in Neath Port Talbot offer part time nursery provision.
When can children start nursery?
Children can access a part time nursery place from the start of the term following their third birthday or the day after their 3rdbirthday providing there is sufficient room in the nursery.
Attendance at a Nursery Class does not automatically entitle a child to a reception class place in the same school. A separate application will have to be submitted for admission to the reception class at the school you wish your child to attend.
For admission to faith schools please contact the schools direct. (Alderman Davies Church-in-Wales Primary, Bryncoch Church-in-Wales Primary, St Joseph's Catholic Infant, St Joseph's Catholic Primary (Neath), St Therese's Catholic Primary).
