Clock ticking on nursery registration

PARENTS hoping to register their children at an East Renfrewshire council-run nursery are asked to register soon.

All children aged three to four are entitled to a free place, and any child at that age between March 1 and February 28 next year should be registered by the last date in February.

A place consists of five mornings or five afternoons, allocated by ballot – the decision then holds for two years.

Those who apply for a place in the 2012-13 session will be contacted by April, provided the application was received by the deadline.
