Jack Straws Lane Nursery

Childcare Services


All areas, including the garden, are fully wheelchair and pushchair accessible.   Parents will have a chance to look around the nursery before enrolling their children, so please inform the staff then of any access needs you may have.  

Please bear in mind that this is a nursery, so some play areas may be a little messy.  Watch out for little fingers and toes, and close all doors behind you!

There are two disabled parking spaces available in the nursery car park, at the end of Jack Straws Lane.  The car park can get very busy at peak times, so please advise the staff of any particular access needs.  Contact St Hilda’s College in advance on 01865 276884 to reserve parking spaces.

(The left hand entrance to the building is used by students of St Hilda’s college, who share part of the building with the nursery).
