About our Nursery

Westwood Nursery

We provide care and education to around 48 young children between the ages 6 months to 5 years, mostly from staff and students of the University. Opening on site in 1977 we are proud of our outstanding record, and we work closely with many other departments within the University of Bath to ensure the safety and wellbeing and best possible education for children. 

We offer a safe, caring and stimulating environment where children can learn and develop to their full potential. Every child at the Nursery is seen as an individual, and we support all needs, abilities and interests. We provide high quality childcare and education, and give children, parents and staff the opportunity to take part in a process of life-long learning. 

We are open between 8.30am - 5.30pm, Monday - Friday.
