Durham University Day Nursery

What else do I need to know?

Our opening times

The Nursery is open from 7.30am to 6pm, Monday to Friday, all year round, except for bank holidays and for a short period at Christmas. Please see the attached related link for this year's nursery closures.


The Nursery has a number of dedicated nursery drop-off parking spaces located at the front of the building, making drop-off and collection easy and convenient.


Access to the nursery rooms is via a security system and we operate a strict policy regarding the collection of children from the Nursery. We have a Child Protection Policy which includes the use of Mobile Phones and Cameras.


The Nursery is fully insured with a specialist nursery insurance policy, providing employers and public liability insurance. We also have a music license.

Health and Safety

The health and safety of babies and children in our care is of paramount importance to us. We have a full Health and Safety Policy which is regularly reviewed and staff make regular checks on premises and equipment. In addition, we are regularly inspected by the University, Environmental Health and by OFSTED. The complete Nursery Health and Safety Policy is available at any time from the Nursery Office.
