Childcare Office

Welcome to the Childcare Office

The Childcare Office, based at 21 Trumpington Street, oversees the facilities and assistance offered to University staff and students with children.

The University has two day nurseries at Edwinstowe Close and at the West Cambridge site for children from three months to school age, and a Holiday Playscheme which operates during the state school holiday periods (excluding Christmas and Bank Holidays) for school-age children. Staff can also benefit from two salary exchange schemes to save tax and National Insurance payments on all or part of childcare costs.

The Childcare Information Service assists with childcare questions and issues. This Service provides free e-newsletters to subscribing parents and detailed staff and student parent guides, as well as information for visiting scholars.
