Our 66-place nursery is for children of students and staff, from six weeks to five years. There is a high demand for places and we have a waiting list.
If you are a part-time student or member of staff, you can use the nursery but you may be restricted to the times when you are timetabled to study or be at work.
The nursery is on Park Road North, Middlesbrough which is a ten minute walk from the main campus.
A happy, safe environment
We provide an environment that is welcoming, happy, safe and secure, and where children will enjoy their time while learning through a wide variety of spontaneous and planned activities. Children gain independence and confidence from these learning opportunities which are based on their own different interests and needs.
We acknowledge that parents know their children better than anyone else. By sharing information, staff are better prepared to plan experiences that suit your child.
Our nursery team
We have an experienced team of practitioners - all are qualified to NVQ Level 3 in Early Years Care and Education or above. Apart from the two senior practitioners, staff rotate between both the Baby and Pre-school units every term.
Ofsted requires our staffing ratios to be:
- Children aged 0–2 years - one member of staff to three children
- Children aged 2-3 years - one member of staff to four children
- Children aged 3-5 years - one member of staff to eight children.
We provide morning milk and a snack, a two-course lunch and afternoon tea for the children. We will cater for any individual dietary or personal needs where possible - you are requested to inform us of definite dislikes, allergies or special dietary requirements.
We ask that parents of young babies supply their own choice of formula until a follow-on formula is suitable which we can supply, along with early weaning foods. We display a daily menu in the nursery.
