We aim to work in partnership with parents to provide the best possible care for children while they are with us, and a sound basis for their future education.
The College Nursery offers a friendly and caring environment in bright, modern facilities for children.
We provide flexible childcare for up to 57 children a day, from three months old until they enter full time education. We take children of the staff and students at Activate Learning colleges and then children from the wider community. We are registered to take children who are in receipt of two-year-old funding and the 15 and 30 hours funding for children who are aged over three years. Please read our prospectus for more information or visit www.childcarechoices.gov.uk to check your eligibility.
The nursery was Ofsted rated ‘good’ in its most recent inspection (2018).
Why Choose The College Nursery?
Our team of experienced staff work in partnership with parents to provide the best possible care for children while they are with us and very much welcome you to share in your child’s learning journey. With each child allocated a keyperson, you can be confident that we will work with you to ensure your child’s physical, social and emotional needs are met.
We recognise that each child’s development is individual and place great importance on really knowing them well. This includes their learning styles, preferences and interests so that we can support them in developing their potential at their own pace.
The College Nursery has a range of facilities to aid your child’s learning and to stimulate all-round development, including a sensory room. During half terms we also run a holiday club from Tuesday to Friday.
