Work completed on new nursery at the University of York

  • 28th March 2024

Tilbury Douglas has handed over a new nursery at the University of York, increasing the childcare provision on campus for staff, students, and local families.

The purpose-built facility, which is located opposite York Sports Village, provides care for more than 90 children in Heslington.

York Campus Nursery includes five age-appropriate rooms, each with its own dedicated indoor and landscaped outdoor play areas, bike and buggy stores, and drop-off parking.

Paul Ellenor, regional director for Yorkshire and the North East at Tilbury Douglas, said: “We are delighted to have successfully completed this new nursery building, helping the university deliver on its commitment to provide an excellent childcare provision for its staff and students, and growing links with the local community.”

During the project the Tilbury Douglas team hosted two T-Level placements and a site visit for York College students, as well as taking part in the Skills for Life Apprenticeship Fair in York.

In addition, team members took part in a digital volunteering day for a local community group, and at the start of the project arranged a visit from Father Christmas for children at the existing nursery.

Dr Joss Ivory, chief operating officer at the University of York, said: “We are delighted to have welcomed the first children to our amazing new nursery in Kimberlow Lane.

“The facility demonstrates a significant investment and commitment to providing exceptional childcare for children from the local area and University of York community.

“We are incredibly grateful to the delivery team and our staff for the passion and commitment shown throughout the project and we look forward to the years ahead and supporting new and existing families in our outstanding new nursery.”
