If you study at the university you are eligible to apply for places at our One World nursery on our Moulsecoomb campus.
It offers children aged two to five a caring and creative environment and are open for 45 weeks each year, Monday to Friday.
Part-time and full-time places are available and children can start at the nursery throughout the year, providing space is available. You can choose a selection of morning or afternoon sessions to fit around your studies.
Subject to availability and adequate notice we may be able to offer you additional sessions, when needed, at specific times of the year.
The nursery provides an inclusive, safe and stimulating environment. Children are supported and encouraged by a highly motivated, committed and experienced team.
The most recent Ofsted inspections recognised outstanding practice in organisation and use of creative play areas at the university nursery. The nursery has achieved consistently excellent Ofsted reports.
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.
