The central London nursery service

  • About the nursery: we aim to provide a pleasurable nursery experience for your child(ren).
  • What we expect from you: to help us provide the best possible service, we will expect you to comply with our procedures.
  • Who can attend: we accept children aged 2-6 years (or older if your child is already attending the nursery)
  • Opening hours: the nursery is open from 5.30-9.00 pm (Monday to Friday) during term time. We are also able to offer an occasional service, if you need to book additional nursery sessions for your child, although we will need a minimum notice period of 24 hours. For more information, please contact the nursery manager.
  • Cost and payment: the cost is £15.00 per evening, per child if you pay at least half a term at a time or £20 for one-off bookings. You must bring a completed Birkbeck Nursery Payment Form to the nursery. If you are paying fees the form must be signed and stamped by a member of Birkbeck staff to confirm payment.
