Children's Work

Our beautiful college nursery opened in October 2008. It offers full-time [Full-time courses consist of 12-16 hours study per week. International students on full-time courses must study a minimum of 15 hours per week.] and part-time places for children aged between 3 months and 5 years, providing a safe and stimulating learning environment for your child while you study. It is open between 8.45am and 5pm, Monday to Friday, term time only.

The Nursery received a 'Good' rating at its most recent Ofsted inspection (June 2015).

For more information about the nursery please phone 020 8326 2318 or email nursery@west-thames.ac.uk.

The nursery is a member of the Hounslow Early Years Development Plan.


Places in the nursery are limited, so it is important to make an application for  a place by contacting the nursery direct as soon as you have applied for a course. Please do not assume that a place has been offered until you receive written confirmation.

We will acknowledge your application within 2 weeks of receiving it and let you know by the end of the summer term if and when a place becomes available.

Once a place is allocated we will send you an induction pack. This will tell you more about the nursery, the way it operates and what your obligations will be. There will also be an induction period for you and your child to visit the nursery.

Please remember that numbers are strictly limited in the nursery and that demand always exceeds places available.
