Discounts and Subsidies

Loughborough Students - A 60p per hour subsidy is available for Loughborough students for the duration of their course. Academic contracts from September to June are available for students. For more information email nursery@lsu.co.uk.

Students' Union Staff - A 60p per hour subsidy is available for all current members of LSU staff.

Loughborough University Staff - A 60p per hour subsidy is made available by the University for their staff members during their employment, this is limited and subject to availability. Confirmation of employment will need to be verified by the University once your child has started and it can take up to a month to process your application.

Disclaimer: Subsidies are not applied to Government funded hours. Proof of eligibility are required to obtain subsidies. If your circumstances change, you must inform the Campus Nursery. The Campus Nursery will reclaim any subsidy payments that have be falsely claimed.


Although we give preference to whole-day bookings, children may attend Nursery for between 4 and 10 sessions per week (full days count as 2 sessions and 9am to 4pm as 1½ sessions), all sessions are fully inclusive, including meals and nappies. Children are expected to attend a minimum of 4 sessions a week (20 hours) for the 50 weeks a year the Nursery is open, or 40 weeks for students. We believe that attending fewer sessions than this does not give enough continuity for a child and it is only in exceptional circumstances that will we admit a child for fewer than 4 sessions per week.
