We have a number of places for 2-year-olds who are eligible for the government's Funding for 2's and also those who want to pay for a place for your 2 year old. If you are eligible you should receive a letter just before your child's 2nd birthday, but if you haven't you can check online at www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/free2s
To get onto the waiting list for a place please fill out an application form and bring it into nursery – Printable PDF link on this page. We need to see proof of date of birth and proof of address when you bring the form in to Nursery. We will then get in contact you when there is a place available for your child.
The sessions we currently offer for 2 year-olds are
Mornings: Mon - Fri 9:00 - 12:00

Children with additional needs
Our nursery staff are very experienced in the care and education of children with additional needs. To ensure that we can offer a safe and secure environment it may mean we have to wait for the recruitment of new staff to enable your child to have a 1:1, which could lead to a delay in their admission. If you have any questions regarding this, please do get in touch with Claire Palmer, our SENCO, who can be contacted via the school office.
More information can be found on our SEND page - SEND at Huntingdon Nursery School
