About the Nursery

The University of Leicester Nursery caters for children aged from six weeks to five years and is only open to  University of Leicester staff and students.

We are registered with, and inspected by, OFSTED and deliver the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum framework. There are separate and shared facilities for babies (under two years) and for children over two years.


The nursery is located next door to - and accessed via - Danielle Brown Sports Centre on Wyggeston Drive (Entrance 1).

Opening times

We are open from 8.00am to 6.00pm, Monday to Friday for 51 weeks a year. We are only closed on bank holidays, the week between Christmas and New Year and two days either side of the Easter Bank Holidays.
