Northumbria University Nursery

We are an Ofsted registered 96 place nursery providing care and education to children from birth to 4 years.  As a wholly owned subsidiary company of the University we have a Board of Directors appointed to oversee the nursery.  We offer places to University staff and members of the community. We were graded Outstanding by Ofsted at our last inspection.

Our approach to learning focusses upon first hand experiences with play and talk being the valued media for learning.

We have been awarded ‘Investors in Children’ accreditation for the past three years which recognises our commitment to giving your child a voice at Northumbria University Nursery, and all children are actively involved in day to day decision making, initiating and leading projects in nursery to support their interests and learning.

Parents are valued as partners in our child centred nursery; we actively promote an ‘open door’ policy which lets you know you are welcome, and positively encouraged to join us to share in your child’s learning experience.
