Nursery Enrolment

Open Day Information

The application process for admission to Pre-School in September 2022 will commence soon.


Information on the procedure will be found in this section once the process commences.


In accordance with the Education Minister's advice and the wider public health situation, we will not be holding am Open Day this year. As a safe alternative, we have uploaded a video to give an overview of life at Ballymagee.


While we would love to welcome you into our school and let you experience first hand just what makes Ballymagee such a special place, we trust you will understand that our priority at this time is keeping children and staff safe.


The Department of Education has determined the total enrolment number for Ballymagee Nursery Unit to be one class of 26 children; part time provision from 9 - 11:30am daily.


Where we have more applications than places available, we apply our admissions criteria to determine allocation of place. Criteria are set by the Board of Governors and reviewed annually. They are available from the School and the Education Authority websites.


Occasionally, a  place becomes available in the Nursery, outside of the Open Enrolment process, and parents who are interested in their child moving to Ballymagee Nursery should make contact through the school office, in the first instance, to check availability of space.

Ballymagee Nursery Admissions Criteria 2021-2022



The Education Authority (EA) manages the process of online applications for admission to Pre School.


A portal for parents, to apply online for a place, is used and requires parents to list preferences of schools. This replaces the previous paper based application form.


For the forthcoming academic year, parents will need to upload their child’s birth certificate to the Education Authority portal. Those applying under the 'socially disadvantaged criterion' will also need to submit their benefit verification. Some providers will also seek other verification documents at this stage in the process.


Information on the procedures for school admissions in September 2022 will be available on this website and the EA website from Friday 17 December 2021.
