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

Now open for immediate start, 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 are 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 also provide access to additional support, including a school Special Educational Needs and Disability coordinator.


Spaces are now available in the following 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.

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.
