To be able to take up 15 hours of early education for your two-year-old you must meet the eligibility criteria. Please visit  for further information.

From 1st January, 1st April or 1st September following your child’s 2nd birthday.

You will be required to provide us with your code and reconfirm your code with childcare choices every 3 months.

If your child attends the day care for longer than 15 hours each week, you will be charged as per the charges outlined above.

Applying and Accepting a Place in Our Day Care

We manage admissions directly and all applications are sent to

We use the following criteria to allocate day care places when we are oversubscribed:

  • Children that are Looked After Children that live in RBKC
  • Children of a permanent member of the school staff
  • Sibling(s) of pupils who currently attend Marlborough Primary School (by age)
  • Age of the pupil (oldest pupils first)

Children must attend for at least two days per week.

We will contact you as soon as a place is becoming available, we will then invite you and your child into day care for an induction meeting to meet your child’s key person. At the meeting we will also find out about your child, their routines and how we can help them settle in with us.

As well as the induction meeting your child will spend some time in our day care to begin getting to know their key person and the day care setting and team. Once they are settled it is time to begin their exciting journey of learning at Marlborough.
