Encouraging independence and learning through play
The University of Portsmouth Nursery was established in 1979 and provides full day care for children aged six months to five years. The nursery is a student facility, although sometimes places do become available for the children of University staff.
The safety, security, wellbeing and health of the nursery children is very important to us. Safeguarding children includes physical security of the building, child health promotion, safer staff recruitment, assessing and managing risks, and child protection.
Any parent who is a registered University of Portsmouth student, studying six or more hours per week, or a member of University staff may apply for a nursery place for their child. To apply download our application form and your child will be added to a waiting list.
