Nursery partnerships

Quality childcare options close to campus

Partnerships with three local nurseries to support LSE families

We're pleased to share more details about our ongoing partnership scheme with three local nurseries, for working families wanting to access discounted childcare close to campus. The scheme is open to both LSE staff and students. 


Our partnership nurseries 

When choosing the nurseries to partner with, a number of considerations were taken into account, including their Ofsted rating, location, availability of spaces, outside space, operating hours, fresh food provision, emergency care support and more. In addition, there will be an LSE representative on the management committees of all three nurseries, ensuring that the decisions made provide the best possible outcomes for our community.  

The scheme, discount and other benefits 

For staff, the minimum discount offered by all three nurseries is 10%. Staff can pay through a salary sacrifice scheme. Please click here to see the process for LSE staff. You can access the Employee Agreement Form here

For students, the School provides a 25% subsidy towards the standard nursery rates for the three nurseries we have entered into partnerships with. Please click here to see the process for LSE students. You can access the Student Agreement Form here


Emergency childcare provision

The excellent Turtles Nursery (rated Outstanding by Ofsted) can offer emergency care provision for staff (or students) who need additional childcare support at short notice. Please contact Turtles direct to arrange this.
