Established in 1969, the Day Nursery was the first on-site workplace nursery in Ireland. We care for up to 52 children from 3 months to 4½ years of age and have a series of rooms dedicated to different age groups and to ensuring your child’s emotional, social and developmental needs are met during their time spent with us.
The nursery is open five days a week Monday to Friday at the following times:
- Beginning of June to the first week of October
- 08.00 – 17.30
- First week of October to the beginning of June
- 08.00 – 18.00
The nursery is closed on Bank Holidays and during official closures by the university such as at Christmas. Details of closures will be posted on the notice board in the Nursery and on the website.
The nursery closing times are posted on the notice boards and must be strictly adhered to at all times. It can be distressing for a child to be left in the nursery when their peers have been collected. It also impacts the staff member and incurs additional working hours for them. Please see our FAQs or policy page regarding late collection.
Throughout our webpages you will find information on our service offerings and the policies and procedures which we adhere to. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any queries you may have.
