To apply for a place, please use the  Gilah Registration Form 2017.

Your child will be offered a place in the term prior to their second birthday.  If you wish to accept the place you will need to pay the deposit (£200).  You may be able to defer the place once, dependant on how full the nursery is at that time and how many children are waiting for places.

This will initially be for two or three sessions per week, progressing to four or five sessions when a space is available.

In the event of the nursery being oversubscribed, priority is given to children of Borehamwood and Elstree Synagogue members and to those who have/have had siblings at Gilah. Date of application will also be taken into account.

Please read the  Gilah Rules & Regulations 2018 new

Places for September 2018

At the moment we are waiting to hear from parents of our present pupils when they are offered places in nursery and reception classes in primary schools. We will then offer vacant places as soon as we are able. Until we know how many children are leaving us in July we cannot offer any more places. If you have heard that your child has a place in a nursery or reception class, please use the contact information to let us know.

Please do NOT telephone the Chair of the Board of Governors to enquire when you will hear if your child has a place. If you wish to contact the nursery, please use the contact informationprovided.


The fees are payable termly in advance.  One Term’s notice of intention to withdraw your child from the nursery is required after acceptance of a place in writing or a term’s fees in lieu of notice will be payable.  Fees must be paid even if your child is absent.  For your child to keep his/her place at the nursery, you must pay the fees before the due date, have a direct debit in place or an arrangement to pay by nursery vouchers!.

Fees are reviewed, and may increase, each September.  Please note that higher fees are charged for the younger children as we require a greater staff:pupil ratio for this age group.

A deposit of £200 is required on acceptance of a place at Gilah Nursery School and will be refunded in the term following full settlement of your child’s account.
