Childcare at the University

Unitots Nursery is situated in Bredon Building on St Johns campus at the University of Worcester. The Nursery is self-contained and has large outdoor facilities. If you have children aged between 3 months up to school age and need to find childcare, you may be able to book a place at Unitots Nursery. The Nursery is registered with Ofsted and at the last two Ofsted inspections was graded as an “outstanding” provision.

The Nursery is open Monday to Friday from 8:00am – 6:00pm, for 50 weeks (except bank holidays, university closed days and the last full week in August), although students book by the semester or longer depending on the length of the course. Various session times are available.
