Equal opportunities

The university nursery is committed to providing equality of opportunity for all children and their families. The university nursery believes that no child, individual or family should be excluded from the nursery on the grounds of age, sexual orientation, class, family status, means, disability, colour, ethnic origin, culture, religion or beliefs.


All children will be respected and their individuality and potential recognised, valued and nurtured. Activities and the use of play equipment offer children opportunities to develop in an environment free from prejudice and discrimination, where they can explore, acknowledge and value similarities and differences between themselves and others.


The resources and materials used in the nursery will be chosen to give children a balanced view of the world and appreciation of the rich diversity of our multi-racial society.

Special Educational Needs

The nursery has a Special Educational Needs Policy which aims to meet the objectives outlined in the DfE Special educational needs and disability code of practice: 0 to 25 years


The nursery recognises that many different type of families successfully love and care for children.


Children and parents who are bilingual or multilingual will have their languages recognised, valued and respected.


Medical, cultural and dietary needs will be met as far as possible. Please see our weekly
