University vacations

The nursery is open throughout the Summer and Easter vacation periods but closes for approximately two weeks at Christmas. During the vacations the nursery operates with fewer staff than usual and therefore places for children are limited.

Parents need to book vacation sessions in advance. During the summer vacation, places are available to children of University students, University staff and outside users and are allocated on a 'first come, first served' basis. Parents may book as few or as many vacation sessions as they wish. There is no retainer fee for those parents who choose not to use the nursery in the vacations.
