Childcare in the University

Information on available childcare support in the University:

Parents Network

The School has established an informal network where parents and expectant parents in the School can share their experiences (good and bad) of being a working or soon-to-be working parent.

All staff and postgraduate research students are welcome. The format and frequency of meetings is determined by members. Previous meetings have included a monthly shared coffee break and going out for lunch a few times per year.

If you would like to participate or share ideas about how the network operates (whether you are interested in being a member yourself or not) please get in touch with Bridgeen McCloskey or Hannah Chalmers.
