Nursery Admissions

Oasis Academy Shirley park has two Nursery classes for 3-4 year olds, the year before they start in Reception. We have a major intake in September of children who will turn 4 during that academic year. The Nursery is based at the Long Lane Campus.

Our aim is to provide holistic learning in a safe, happy and stimulating environment through which all children are challenged and make outstanding progress. To develop confident, happy children, equipped with foundations to nurture a lifelong love of learning. 

We foster a harmonious atmosphere which supports and promotes self-esteem. We build confident communicators supporting every child as an individual across development in all areas of the Early Years and Foundation Stage. We help every child to grow up feeling confident about their own identity, in a spirit of friendship, understanding fairness and the rights of others, valuing diversity, and ready to be a British citizen.

The Academy has an agreed admission number of 84, based on 42 children in the morning session and 42 children in the afternoon session, in 2 classes - Little Acorns and Little Conkers, however we are also able to offer full day places.

We are able to offer full week-day places (for 5 full days a week) to children whose parents are eligible for the Government’s 30 Hour Free Childcare Scheme and every week-day morning or every week-day afternoon places for all other children who are eligible for 15 hours Government funding. Top-up sessions may be available to purchase. All places are dependent on availability of places in the Nursery.

How do i know if I am eligible
for funding support?

All 3 and 4 year olds are entitled to 570 hours of funded childcare a year (usually taken as 15 hours a week for 38 weeks) from the term following their 3rd birthday.

If you are a working family, your 3 or 4 year old may be entitled to an additional 570 hours a year, sometimes referred to as 30 hours or extended entitlement. To see if you are eligible log on to www.childcarechoices.gov.uk 
applications are only made to HMRC via this website. 

You must apply the term before you want to use the additional hours and you will need to reconfirm your eligibility every 3 months.
