Nursery and Preschools

Selly Oak Nursery School

26 Tiverton Rd, Birmingham B29 6BP, UK – 0121 472 1700

Amazing nursery! Children were ahead of the curriculum when ready for reception. They care deeply for all families while going above and beyond to ensure every child has the best start to their education in a areas, maths, art, forest school, English all children leave with maths and writing skills

When I initially applied for my son to have a place at Selly Oak Nursery School, it was because it was an outstanding rated nursery and I wanted my precious 3-4 year old little boy to have the best start to his educational life as possible. What struck me as unique about the nursery was its clear emphasis on education for the future, whilst at the same time nurturing each child in the present as an individual who could be all that they choose to be. I was not looking for a nursery, I was looking for a lot more than that. I was looking for a nursery school, and as such wanted a place that was more than just a childcare provider and that offered my son the structure in education that he would need to prepare for the transition to Primary School. I had been continually impressed since his admission to the nursery with the staff, activities, learning opportunities and care given to my son. Before he began at the nursery he was a very different child; he was incredibly shy, barely talking much at all to anyone outside of his family group, and slightly delayed in his speech and communication. What I wanted for him was a place he could call his own, where he would learn for the future and be part of an inclusive community of children and teachers. This wonderful place provided him with that in the bucket load, and I will always be grateful for that. He is now a 5-year-old who has almost finished Reception at an outstanding primary school, who is confident both in terms of the rigours of phonics and mathematics, but also importantly with himself as an individual. The nursery gave him the chance to know what it is to be part of a school community, one where he was cared for in a genuinely positive and encouraging way, and gave him the chance to flourish. Selly Oak Nursery School turned my little boy from a child that was introverted, shy, and anxious, to a child that is supremely confident, infectiously curious, and incredibly keen to learn. The nursery embraced anything that interested my son, and opened his eyes to so many new interests ranging from minibeasts, 3D shape drawing, mud kitchens, bread making, role play, sitting down and reading stories, construction... I am so proud of him, but more importantly he is proud of himself, which is such a happy thing for me to see. My child would not have flourished half as much in a structured Primary School environment (where he is now meeting and exceeding expectations) if it were not for the approach Selly Oak Nursery School took with him and his learning – so much so that my youngest daughter will be attending the Nursery School in September. This place is more than just its outstanding OFSTED report; it is an outstanding community of teachers, parents and children, with a strong belief in the importance of education for all children. I wouldn’t recommend anywhere else.

Fantastic nursery with lovely staff!

Catherine House

19 Woodland Rd, Birmingham B31 2HU, UK – 0121 475 8416

Highly recommended, both of my children have been here from 1 year until school age.

It isn't about the parent's experience but about the child's. I must say that our daughter has flourished here. The care & development she has received is first class & when the pitter patter of tiny feet comes again, we won't hesitate. Highly recommended.

It has been a pleasure to learn with Oliver. His patient and calming nature put me at ease, and enabled me to develop from a nervous driver into somebody who is now fully confident on the road. I cannot recommend him highly enough!

Oliver is a brilliant driving instructor and I would recommend him to everyone. When I switched to Oliver from a different instructor I wasn't very confident and had pretty much accepted the idea that I just wasn't very good at driving. However, Oliver was so patient and so thorough in his teaching that by the end I didn't just reach pass level, but finished feeling genuinely confident in my driving abilities beyond the test - thanks to Oliver I passed first time! He is also very friendly and reliable, and I'm really going to miss his Skoda Fabia which was a great car to learn in!
