Alton College Nursery

Our aim at Alton College Nursery is to make your child’s time at Nursery fun and enjoyable.

Your child will learn through play in a relaxed environment allowing them to explore and grow. We aim to work with you to ensure your child loves their Nursery experience and enables us to nurture and support them in the early stages of their life.

Alton College Nursery provides daycare for all children whether you are studying/working at the College or from the Community. Children aged between six months and five years of age attend and there is space for 28 children at a time. We are open from 8am – 5pm, term time only. See below for information about funding and the sessions we offer.

If you’re interested in using the Alton College Nursery, you are welcome to come and see it for yourself and talk to the staff who can provide you with all the information you need.
