Based at our Chaffron Way campus, our Early Years Nursery is rated "Good" by Ofsted and offers a safe, happy and caring environment for your child (you can view the full report at the bottom of this page).

Open to staff, students and members of the public, our purpose-built accommodation ensures that we are able to cater for the needs of children between 4 months to 5 years, offering flexible childcare that suits your requirements.

We understand how important choosing the right nursery is, which is why we value the role of parents/carers and work in partnership with families to ensure the best possible care for each child.


Our experience

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum and the activities and resources we provide are based on the children’s current interests and individual needs.

We carry out observations each week and include children in the planning process and we also invite you, the parent/or carer, to contribute to your child's experience.


We have three dedicated rooms:

 • Baby Room (4 months to 16 months)

 • Toddler Room (16 months to 2.5 years)

 • Pre-school Room (2.5 years to rising 5’s)


Holiday Playscheme

For those with childcare needs during the summer, we also run a Holiday Playscheme. 



From the term after your child’s third birthday, there is government funding for either 15 hours for 38 weeks of the year or 11 hours for 51 weeks of the year.
