Childcare bursaries may be available to children at the Balliol Day Nursery whose parents are undergraduate or postgraduate students at Balliol.
Balliol operates a small friendly Day Nursery on the ground floor of an Edwardian house in Rawlinson Road, North Oxford, with six members of staff including the Manager and Deputy. It has built an outstanding reputation, based on its family atmosphere, dedicated staff, fun activities, and happy children. Following its most recent Ofsted inspection in 2015, Balliol Day Nursery was judged as outstanding in every area.
The Nursery has 16 places for children from 3 months to 5 years. It operates as a mixed-aged group setting; the children are cared for all together. It is open weekdays from 8.45am to 5.00pm, for 46 weeks per year, with closed periods at Christmas, Easter, and in August.
Available to current undergraduate or postgraduate students at Balliol.
The amount of the bursary is set each year in the spring for the next academic year and depends upon the contribution of the donor and the number of students currently holding them.
Funding for these bursaries was donated by Nicola Horlick (Balliol 1979) in memory of her daughter Georgina.
