Westwood Nursery

Westwood Nursery is an on-campus, Ofsted-registered Nursery which provides day care facilities for children of students, staff and the local community.


NurseryPlus is the University’s salary exchange scheme for employees using Westwood Nursery. The scheme allows these employees to exchange a deduction from their salary prior to tax and national insurance in return for nursery care, which can allow employees to save on their childcare costs.
