The Students’ Union manage a 25-place nursery for children aged 3 months to 5 years.

About Us

The nursery offers excellent care and learning provisions for children in a warm and nurturing environment, with 25 places avalible. The nursery staff are highly qualified and extremely experienced in early years practice.We are open 44 weeks per year, closing for two weeks over Christmas and Easter and for four weeks in August. The entrance to the nursery is to the rear of the house, via the main College forecourt.



Nursery staff work in accordance with the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework (EYFS) which incorporates the importance of parent partnership and valuing each child’s individual needs, interests and abilities. Children learn and play indoors and outdoors, daily. We believe that children learn best through play, by experimenting, experiencing, imagining and investigating through quality provision.

The nursery has a baby room for six children from 3 months old, a toddler room for seven children aged from 18 months old and a pre-school room for twelve children aged from rising 3 year olds to school-age.
