Full-Time Childcare For Students

toy3Full-time childcare for children aged two months to four years is provided in two different locations:

  • 1 Rugby Road
  • 11 College Gardens

The crèches are registered with the Belfast Health and Social Care Trust and conform to the standards and regulations stipulated by the Children (NI) Order 1995.  These regulations include staffing levels, health and safety checks and curricular programmes.  The crèches combine the qualities of a happy, caring atmosphere and a stimulating learning environment.  Whether your child is attending our College Gardens or Rugby Road site, be assured the same high standards of childcare apply.  It is our aim to offer a varied programme of activities nurturing the development of the ‘whole child’ delivered through the medium of play.

We would like to assure you that our highly trained and experienced Childcare Team will endeavour to make certain your child’s time with us will be a happy learning experience.
