Childcare Office

 

The Childcare Office oversees the facilities and assistance offered to University staff and students with children.

The University has two day nurseries at Edwinstowe Close and at the West Cambridge site for children from three months to school age, as well as a Holiday Playscheme which operates during the state school holiday periods (excluding Christmas and Bank Holidays) for school-age children; although our venue at St Mary’s Junior School is also open for some additional holiday periods. Staff can benefit from two salary exchange schemes to save tax and National Insurance payments on all or part of childcare costs.

The Childcare Office operates an Information Service, which aims to support families of the University community.  The service offers information on family related issues including childcare, schooling, health care, financial support and local community resources.
