Welcome to University of Birmingham Day Nurseries: the perfect place to learn and grow.
A stay and play group like no other. Nestled in leafy woodland, your little one can let their imagination run wild, and be inspired by one of the only award-winning forest schools in south Birmingham.
To protect the welfare of visitors, staff, students and our children, we can’t currently offer our usual nursery visits for new families. Book an appointment at The Elms on their latest visiting day, take a virtual tour of The Elms or The Oaks, call to ask about safe out-of-hours visiting, or give us a call to discuss anything you’d like to know: just scroll down for the numbers for each of our nurseries.
Families with children at our nurseries: please contact the office if have any questions, and check your inbox for regular updates.
A magical place
Choose quality childcare, outdoor learning and a home-from-home experience for your family. The University's three Ofsted-registered day nurseries are open to all.
A learning journey
Every day, your child will learn and grow through fun and free play, inspired by their own instincts and interests.
While they’re developing communication, language, numeracy, problem solving and physical skills, they’ll also be learning to build relationships and gaining confidence, independence and self-esteem.
Partnerships with parents
A strong, trusting and communicative relationship with everyone caring for your child matters so much.
You’ll always be included, informed, welcomed and supported. We’ll work together, sharing our knowledge and learning from yours.
Staff who care
Qualified, friendly staff bring years of professional childcare experience and a genuine commitment to quality care.
You can relax, knowing your child is cared for by a nurturing, knowledgeable team who you know and trust.
Sparking the imagination
Sensory Rooms support your child’s wellbeing and development. Forest School connects them to nature, learning new skills in the great outdoors. The Curiosity Approach nurtures your child’s creative potential.
