The Nursery at BCoT

We'll take care whilst you're not there

The Nursery at BCoT offers outstanding care and education for children aged 3 months to 5 years. Situated on the North Site of the college, our parents include college students, lecturers and staff as well as families from the local community.

Our Nursery first opened their doors in September 1996 and since then have worked hard to ensure that all children enjoy learning and playing so that they can go on to achieve their full potential in later life. Since 2012, it has been graded as ‘Outstanding’ by OFSTED. This was repeated in 2014 where it was praised for the ‘outstanding progress children are making in their learning and development’. The Nursery was also commended for ‘the positivity and exemplary attitude of the children which is reflected in the overall professionalism of The Nursery’s staff and management.’
