Applications open for 2024 nursery places

Applications for nursery school places in Cardiff are now open, and parents with children who turn three between September 1 2023 and August 31 2024, can now apply for a part-time nursery place to start in September 2024.


English and Welsh medium places are available at one of the 91 nursery classes in 88 schools across the city, including three schools with a dual-stream offer. Families are encouraged to apply before the deadline of Monday 26 February, to help their chance of being offered a nursery place of their choice.


To apply for a place in a community school nursery please visit Nursery school admissions on the Cardiff Council website. Families preferring a nursery class place at a faith-based primary school can apply directly to these schools for admission.


Council cabinet member Sarah Merry said: "Children aged three to four years are entitled to a part-time nursery place from the start of the term after they have turned three.


"In Cardiff we have more than 5,000 nursery spaces across the city providing either English- or Welsh-medium provision so there are plenty of options to choose from, however families are encouraged submit their applications on time to help make sure they have the best chance of being offered a preferred nursery class place."


Children with a nursery class place will be required to complete a separate application form for primary school admissions.

For help and support in applying for a school place, please visit Rhiwbina Hub or any other Cardiff Council Hub or library:  Hubs and Libraries (
