Activities

The nursery is very lucky to be situated on the Univesity campus. We have access to the Students' Union building plus all the amenities available within the University.

These are just some of the activities that the nursery children have enjoyed.

Every year the University kindly hands over for the afternoon the Paula Radcliffe Athletics Stadium located just behind the nursery. This is a very popular event for the children, parents, staff and the Action volunteers.

Every autumnthe University organises a fruit forage to collect apples from the many fruit trees on University land.
