Access Keys:

Lisnagelvin Nursery School, 48 Richill Park, L'derry


If your child is starting pre-school or primary school in September 2020, you can apply online between Tuesday 7th January 2020 and 12.00 noon on Thursday 30th January 2020. Please note that places are not allocated on a first come, first served basis and applications will only be considered after the closing date. Further information is available on the EA website under the Admissions section at -

Parents please note that Lisnagelvin Nursery School offer both full-time and part-time places. If you wish to be considered for a place in either of these sessions you must select both full-time and part-time on your application in order of preference. As there is a huge demand for full-time pre-school places it would be advisable to consider selecting a part-time place at our nursery somewhere on your list of preferences.

Once you have submitted your application online please ensure that you bring your child's birth certificate and 2 proof of address documents to your first preference nursery as soon as possible and no later than 12.00 noon on Friday 7th February 2020.

For those parents who are receiving income support or universal credit a benefit verification form can be downloaded from our website or is available from your local social security/jobs & benefits office. This form must be stamped and returned to your first preference school by 12.00 noon on Friday 7th February 2020.

Parents of children who are already enrolled in Lisnagelvin Nursery in 2019/2020 must reapply for a place if they wish their child to attend in the school year 2020/2021.
