Childcare

Nursery facilities

Helpful websites for finding care for young children are DISC: Devon's Family Infomation Service or Cornwall's Family Information Service.

The University’s Family Centre on Streatham Campus caters for children from birth to 5 years of age, although places are limited.

Little Wonders run the new Penryn Campus nursery and the Woodlane Nursery in Falmouth which welcomes babies from 12 months old and has separate facilities for children over the age of three. Children up to the age of eight can use the after-school and holiday clubs.

Salary sacrifice arrangements for the provision of childcare vouchers

The University has made arrangements to participate in a scheme which enables employees to purchase, via a salary sacrifice arrangement approved by HM Revenue & Customs, childcare vouchers of up to £55* per week (£243* per calendar month) without paying tax or National Insurance Contributions on this sum. Please see the Childcare Vouchers pages for more details.
