Durham University Day Nursery

Durham University’s nursery is OFSTED registered (EY257491), and provides a high-standard of childcare working in partnership with other childcare partners in Durham.

Our nursery is open from 7.30am to 6.00pm, Monday to Friday. With convenient access, the nursery is located in central Durham with a number of drop-off car parking spaces provided specifically for our parents and children.

The Nursery operates as a workplace nursery for University staff and students, with childcare vouchers being accepted for non-university parents also. The nursery fees are very competitive and children may be eligible for Early Years Grant Funding in the school term following their third birthday.
