Student life at the University of Brighton


If you are studying or working at university, we have two nurseries that provide high quality childcare for students, staff and local parents.

One World and Phoenix nurseries offer children aged 2-5 a caring and creative environment. Both are open for 45 weeks each year, Monday to Friday. Part-time and full-time places are available. Children can start at the nurseries throughout the year, providing space is available.

Stimulating and well-supervised childcare

The nurseries provide an inclusive, safe and stimulating environment. Children are supported and encouraged by a highly motivated, committed and experienced staff team.

Staff value individuality and acknowledge the contribution each child makes.

Our early years curriculum is informed by the Early Years Foundation Stage. It is based on children learning through play in an organised learning environment.

OFSTED quote

"Children enjoy using the wide range of resources available to them including clay, paint, collage materials, sand and water play. They enjoy expressing themselves creatively and take inspiration from the many reproductions of art work."
