Childcare and Schools

There are plenty of childcare options in Liverpool to support students who wish to bring their families with them. Students will receive support and information on childcare while studying at LSTM.

In the UK, State schooling is compulsory from the September following the child's 4th birthday and is free of charge.  This applies to the children of all international students, except for students on visitor visas. 

If you are bringing school-age children with you, your choice of school will largely be determined by the location of your accommodation.  The Student Experience Officer can assist with finding a suitable school.  

In the term following their 3rd birthday, children (including children of overseas students) are entitled to free part-time nursery education, either within schools or playgroups.  Children below the age of 3 can be cared for in private nurseries.  This will cost around £200–250 a week.
