The Early Learners’ Centre is a caring, stimulating environment to help your child work, rest and play. A purpose built day nursery we support the childcare needs of students as well as the children of the local community, we offer parents peace of mind so they can concentrate on work or their studies knowing that their children are being looked after by professionally qualified childcare workers.

We have an excellent reputation and the report from our latest Ofsted inspection demonstrates that we go from strength to strength.

We have strong links with local primary schools and ensure that the transitions to school are as easy and effective as possible so that our children are prepared for the next stage in their lives.

We believe that parents/carers are a child’s first educator and by working with them we are able to provide the best learning opportunities for the children as observed by Ofsted.

“Partnership working with parents is strong. Effective methods of communication keep parents well informed about their child’s day and progress. All children benefit very well from a coordinated approach to their learning, care and welfare.” – Ofsted, 2017

What parents think

  • “My son wasn’t speaking very well when he started in September – he would only join two words together and used to point at things he wanted. Since then his speech has greatly improved and he now puts full sentences together.”
  • “I cannot thank the staff enough for the time and support they have given not only to my son, but myself with strategies to work on with him. It gives me great pleasure to see him playing, interacting and helping others, a far cry from the shy little boy that started a few months ago.”

As a student you may be able to get assistance with the cost of childcare through our Student Support Fund.
