Nursery Partnerships

LSE has partnership agreements in place with three local nurseries near to campus so that LSE staff and students can access discounted childcare. These nurseries were selected for their Ofsted rating, location, availability of spaces, outside space, operating hours, fresh food provision, emergency care support and more. For LSE students, the School will provide a subsidy towards the standard nursery rates. For more details, including the process for students to apply, please see the Nursery Partnerships webpage. 

Advice for pregnant students or those with children

If you become pregnant or if you adopt a child while you are a student at the School you may need to seek advice about your own health, the health of your child, the management of your programme of study and any benefits and services available to you. To find out more about the services provided visit the student services web pages. 

Much of this guidance is also relevant to students with children and students whose partners are pregnant.
