BSDC Student Information - Childcare

A happy, loving and secure atmosphere with a stimulating, motivating environment in which children will enjoy learning through play.

At Burton and South Derbyshire College we understand how important it is that your child is happy and well cared for whilst you study. Quality care and early learning developmental and educational activities are offered to children aged from 6 weeks to 5 years old in our on site 44 place nursery. The care and interests of each individual child is monitored by highly qualified nursery staff.

The Nursery has been highly praised by Ofsted and the Nursery was recently awarded the highest possible grade in the National Day Nurseries Association Investors in Children endorsed Quality Counts scheme; the leading quality assurance scheme for nurseries.

There is a great demand for nursery places at the beginning of the academic year. Please register your interest by calling the College Nursery for further details on 01283 494476 or email
