Greenleaf Primary School & Nursery

Nursery Admissions

You should apply for a nursery place when your child is 2 years old. Your child will be eligible for a free nursery place starting the term AFTER they are 3 years old*, until they enter Reception. 

*If you are on a low income, your child may be eligible to take up a place slightly earlier with us, in the term they become 3 years old.  When your child is 2 years old, please check free 2 year old funding eligibility  to find out if your child qualifies. You will be allocated a code, to present to us and use to fund the earlier admission.

Hours and Funding

Greenleaf Nursery offers the standard free 15 hours places available to ALL 3 and 4 year olds, taken as either a Morning, Afternoon, or Extended Hours place, as well as up to 30 hours places, if you are eligible and we have the space. Please look up your eligibility on the Government website, from which you will be allocated a code, if you are successful.

Nursery Times and Prices


Completed forms can be emailed to nurseryadmissions@greenleaf.waltham.sch.uk, posted to Greenleaf School Nursery Admissions, 80 Greenleaf Road, Walthamstow, E17 6QW, or left at the school office at the same address.

Please make sure that you come in and let us know if you move or if your phone number or email changes. Please do look out for emails, especially in the 2 terms before your child is due to start!

Do come and play at our Toddler Group in the main school hall from 9.00am to 10.40am on Friday mornings, during term time only. You can meet the Nursery Teacher, Caroline, who runs the group, as well as popping in to look around the nursery with your child and meeting the rest of the team.

Language Development

If you have any language or development concerns, please ensure that you seek support using one or more of the following:

  • You can request a two year check from your doctor
  • Speak to your doctor about your development concerns
  • You can access a Speech and Language check by searching the Waltham Forest Directory and entering 'speech and language drop-in' and your postcode
  • Pop along to our Friday morning Toddler Group between 9.00am and 10.45am (term time only) and speak to Caroline, the Nursery Teacher.

The Speech and Language therapy waiting list is very long so please don’t wait until your child starts nursery!
