Information about the setting
Northumbria University Nursery originally registered in 2002 and re-registered in 2012 on the Early Years Register and the compulsory part of the Childcare Register after moving to new premises.

There are currently 67 children on roll, all of whom are in the early years age group. The nursery employs 23 members of childcare staff, 18 of whom hold appropriate early years qualifications at level 3 or above.

The nursery supports children who speak English as an additional language. What the setting needs to do to improve further To further improve the quality of the early years provision the provider should: consider reviewing the excellent arrangements already in place for how older children serve their food at lunch time.
