Wolfson College Oxford Nursery
The Nursery is based within the College grounds in North Oxford. It aims to provide a safe and stimulating educational environment in which children can develop their knowledge and skills at their own pace. We aspire to produce happy, well-adjusted and confident children by working in close partnership with parents.
By adopting the key-person system, we ensure consistency of care for the child and a two-way partnership between parents and carer to establish close links between home and nursery.
Oxfordshire provides a choice of daycare nurseries, but few can offer such excellent care, securely nestled between Summertown and the city centre, in the heart of a peaceful College environment.
The day nursery provides:
- a relaxed, safe and stimulating atmosphere;
- an encouraging, consistent and positive attitude towards all children;
- a welcome for children of all abilities and from all social and ethnic backgrounds;
- a recognition that children have individual needs and may therefore develop at different rates;
- freedom from stereotyping of any kind
