University of Cambridge students who have infants or young children may be eligible to send their children to either of the two University of Cambridge nurseries (one of these is located on Edinstowe Close, off Chaucer Road). Details can be found here:www.admin.cam.ac.uk/univ/childcare/. And of course there is the Joint Colleges Nursery, located on Chaucer Road:www.jcn.org.uk/.
Staff and students of the University of Cambridge, and university-linked and college staff, who have school-aged children can take advantage of the Universities’ Holiday Playscheme. This playscheme provides childcare during the state school holiday periods and is operated by the University of Cambridge and Anglia Ruskin University. Details can be found here: www.admin.cam.ac.uk/univ/childcare/.
