Enrol in Nursery

Children who were born between 1st March 2017 and 28th February 2019 are entitled to free early learning and childcare in the school term 2021 to 2022. All offers of Nursery places at Boddam School are dependent on available spaces.


Although the statutory entitlement for Early Learning and Childcare is 600 hours, families residing in Aberdeenshire can currently access up to 1140 hours at providers that have capacity. Aberdeenshire Council is in partnership with childminders, playgroups and private nurseries. You can contact afis@aberdeenshire.gov.uk to find out about providers in your local area. The Council are reviewing capacity across the early years sector on an ongoing basis in line with COVID-19 guidance.  Current COVID-19 restrictions may impact on how your child receives their hours.
