Where we live you can put your child's name down for any nursery regardless of where you live. Schools are different though, some operate catchment areas others give you a preference and allocate places based upon a number of criteria. I type in the name of the authority/council and then primary school/nursery admissions and it usually directs you to info for that paticular area. HTH

phone LEA education department or schools as they will know, but unless school is oversubscribed it shouldn't matter.

Depends on LEA , not all work on strict geographical catchments and, depending on demand, they made not come into play when the particular year you apply anyway.
