For Imperial parents who aren't based at South Kensington Campus, or cannot easily access Early Years nursery, we have affiliations with some nurseries local to other campuses. 

Old Oak Early Years Centre

Opening in July 2021, Old Oak Early Years Centre is a new nursery for Imperial parents in West London. We are a partnership between Old Oak Primary School and Imperial College London.

Between us, we have over 50 years of experience in providing high quality early years education, including our outstanding Early Years Centre in South Kensington.

We’re now excited to introduce this new facility for parents at our Hammersmith and White City campuses. We will be situated in a newly refurbished space that will initially welcome 20 children - from 6 months to 5 years - into a stimulating and nurturing environment.

Our approach

We recognise every child as an individual and our dedicated, qualified early years educators work to create a child-centered curriculum for all our children.

We offer balanced and nutritious meals and drinks throughout the day, and our children benefit from access to our own outdoor play area, as well as the open spaces of nearby Wormwood Scrubs.

We provide access to additional support, including a school Special Educational Needs and Disability coordinator.


For July 2021, we will initially be welcoming 20 children across three age groups:

  • 6 months to 2 years
  • 2 years
  • 3 to 5 years

Fees will match those of the Early Years Centre in South Kensington. The prices below are the monthly fee until 31 July 2021:

  • 5 days: £1282.28 per month
  • 3 days: £810.96 per month
  • 2 days: £540.64 per month

Please note: Annual fee increases take place from 1 August. Prices for Aug 2021 - July 2022 will be updated in due course.

College staff are eligible to use salary sacrifice and students can access fulltime discount rates. We will also match the opening hours and termtime closures of the centre in South Kensington. For more information on how to apply or make an enquiry please email
