Find nurseries in Luton and learn how to access free nursery places.

Nurseries provide care and education for children from six weeks to five years.

They are run by various organisations, including:

  • community groups - often managed by 'not for profit' organisations
  • private or independent businesses
  • workplaces - these tend to be linked to employers who offer the places to children of staff.

  • Care and education for children from six weeks to five years.
  • Some offer out-of-school care for children from five to eleven.
  • Normally open 50 weeks a year - full or part time places available.
