Childcare Office

 

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

The University has three Workplace Nurseries at Edwinstowe Close, West Cambridge and Eddington for children from three months to school age.  Offers of places at a University Workplace Nursery depend on demand and qualifying criteria. There is a scheme for staff who secure a Workplace Nursery place, to benefit from tax and National Insurance savings on their nursery fees.

There is 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. 

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.
