We currently have 450 FTE places for eligible staff and students, 332 of which are in the University’s own nurseries. It is not always easy to predict when you might be offered one of these as a number of variables can affect availability, for example your choice of nursery, the age of your child or your preferred attendance pattern. However, please rest assured that we will contact you as early as possible when a place does become available. Your offer will be made via email, with a minimum three day window given for you to accept.
Please note that most nursery places will be offered during the summer as we receive notifications of school leavers for that year. If you have requested a nursery place between June and September, you will be notified in early summer if a place becomes available for you. You will receive a confirmed start date as soon as we can confirm the dates that the older children will be leaving for school.
