As any parent knows, it can be extremely difficult to juggle work with the demands of bringing up your children. To support you, the University has two first-class nurseries offering quality childcare and experiential pre-school education for children aged six weeks to five years.
We offer friendly childcare provision, filled with fun and activities based on educational play. We create an environment where ideas can be explored and experiences shape, stimulate and develop young minds and bodies.
Our nurseries operate from 7.55am until 6.20pm Monday to Friday for 50 weeks of the year. They are closed for approximately eight days over the Christmas vacation and four days over the Easter vacation.
Children can attend full-time or on a sessional basis of morning and/or afternoon, enabling parents to make flexible use of childcare services.
Our nursery services are self-financing and fees for University members of staff are details on the University's child care website.
