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

What counts as evidence in the Social Sciences?
Tuesday 16 January -
5:30pm to 6:30pm

Social scientists study phenomena in which people play a fundamental role: anthropology, economics, law, the internet, and so on. People can generally do whatever they like, and so their behaviour is not governed by rules in the same way as the phenomena studied by physicists and chemists. Given this, what kinds of questions can social scientists answer, and how do they do it? Do different kinds of social scientists have different approaches to evidence, and if so how?
