Keele Nursery opens for Evening Lectures

To support parents attending the Grand Challenges and the Inaugural Lectures, the Keele Nursery will be offering extended opening hours. The Keele University Day Nursery offers excellent provision in their purpose built state of the art facilities set within their own secure grounds on the Keele campus. The nursery usually closes at 6.00pm and for the Keele evening lectures, provision will be extended until 7.15pm.

This offer is available to all staff and students and is free of charge. It is available both for those who currently use the nursery and for those who simply wish to attend one of the lectures and take advantage of this opportunity. If your child/children are already at the nursery you may extend their day and pick them up later, others may drop their child/children off from 5.30 – 7.00pm. The multifunction Butterfly room in the nursery will be available and this is suitable for children up to 10 years.
