About our Nurseries

Welcome to our Nurseries

Our University Nurseries are located in picturesque, vibrant and creative learning environments at the Penryn and Falmouth Campuses.

We provide high quality childcare and education for children up to 5 years, with after school care for children up to 8 years, for the families of staff, students and the local community. 

Our aim is to give your child a happy and confident start in life.

Woodlane Day Nursery

Established in 1991, our Woodlane Day Nursery has an excellent reputation for quality. Situated close to the Falmouth town centre, sub-tropical gardens and beaches, our highly regarded 37 place Falmouth Campus Nursery contains three dedicated rooms for children aged 1 to 2 years, 2 to 3 years and 3 to 5 years. Outside there is a pleasant, garden area where we offer a range of physical activities for the children. 

Penryn Campus Day Nursery

The Penryn Campus has an energetic vibe with a strong sense of place, history and community. It is thriving, diverse, creative and full of life with a rich heritage and environment, including beautiful walled gardens, an orchard, an Italian garden and terraces. There are very good public transport links, with a regular bus service and train station nearby.

On the Penryn Campus, a new 54 place purpose-built Nursery will open in September 2016. Our new Nursery will cater for children between 0 to 5 years in three age group rooms: 0 to 2 year olds, 2 to 3 year olds and 3 to 5 year olds. Each room will have access to a secure, outdoor eco-friendly play and learning area.

With high quality childcare on campus, you'll be able to study and work with peace of mind, knowing that your child is close by, happy and in very safe hands.
