The University’s Childcare Office operates the Information Service that provides comprehensive guidance on family-related matters such as childcare, schooling, health care, financial support and local community resources. The Childcare Office also oversees the facilities and assistance available to student parents, including the West Cambridge Nursery and the Holiday Playscheme.
Each College has a designated Childcare Contact, who can provide information about childcare, their College’s family accommodation, and financial support available to student parents.
The University Nursery on the West Cambridge Site has a limited number of places available for students’ children aged three months to five years.
Gonville & Caius, and Queens’ Colleges have their own nurseries, and the Wolfson Court Nursery serves Churchill, Girton, St John’s and Trinity Colleges. Please contact the individual Colleges to discuss these facilities. If you have school-aged children the University’s Childcare Information Service will be able to advise.
