Here at Lilliput Day Nursery we are very proud of our settings and the facilities that we offer to our families but we are only as good as our team of practitioners.
And as nursery practitioners go. we have a pretty amazing bunch who go above and beyond to meet the needs of the children and families that we care for day in and day out.
We are extremely proud of them and thought you would like to meet them all.
Alison is a NNEB qualified Nursery Nurse with more than 30 years experience in the childcare sector.
Having worked in private nurseries and Birmingham Social Services Day Nurseries I have gained a wealth of knowledge and experience of a wide diversity of children and their families. For 5 years I also worked in the Early Years department of a further education college teaching and training future nursery nurses before opening my first nursery in June 2005 when my youngest daughter was 9 weeks old!
Steve is an experienced building contractor with over 30 years experience. He originally refurbished both nurseries to an extremely high standard and continues to maintain and develop them. In recent years both nurseries have had their gardens refurbished and during 2018 Steve refurbished our Rubery nursery.
We opened our first nursery in Rubery during 2005, followed by our second setting in Kings Heath during 2010.
Hi, I’m Annette (Manager)
I am a mother to 3 girls and two grandchildren who i love to be around. Family is important to me and I bring my life skills and experience along with me every day i walk through the door of nursery. I joined Lilliput in September 2005 and have been on quite a journey, starting as a nursery assistant rising through the ranks to my present position of Nursery manager, which i have held for the last 8 and half years. When i started at Lilliput in 2005 i always knew i wanted to guide and inspire our future generation to become the best they could. I love to watch how children develop and change while in our care and then when they move onto big school and leave the setting we can say we helped towards the little people they have become. Our Kings Heath setting has always been a family to all who enter our doors and cards we receive say how they will miss their Lilliput family when children leave. I am lucky to have an amazing team around me who i know will continue with the already excellent work they do to ensure the nursery goes forward to be the best it can.
Hello, I’m Kelly (Deputy Manager)
I’m a level 3 practitioner and joined Lilliput in June 2016 as a room leader in Pre School. I have been qualified since 2010 and have many years experience working within the childcare sector including I being a private nanny for three children in their own home. During my time at Lilliput i have progressed to Senior Nursery Nurse and now have the position of Deputy Manager. I am looking forward to helping the whole team to continue to improve their practice and develop the nursery to the high standard that is expected. I am a mother to an 8 month old who keeps me on my toes 24 / 7 but i would not have it any other way. I have a passion for childcare and have a vision to inspire all children that i care for.
Hi, I’m Carol (Senior Nursery Nurse)
I first joined Lilliput in Rubery in 2006 as a level 3 nursery nurse. I left to work elsewhere but came back to the Kings Heath setting in September 2010. I have many years experience of working with children and many life skills that help me encourage, challenge and develop the children I look after. I have progressed to the position of Room Leader and am now Senior Nursery Nurse. I have grown in confidence while working alongside an inspirational management team which has enabled me to support the whole staff team around me. I am a mother of three grown up children and have two beautiful granddaughters who are my world. Being positive and happy within the nursery has given me the opportunity to input my parent partnership skills which is a real strength of mine.
Lilliput Day nursery is a lovely environment to work in as we all support each other to ensure all the children’s needs are met and parents feel secure in the knowledge their children are well cared for and given the opportunities to develop and be ready to take their next steps.

Hi, My name is Arielle
I am proud to say I am the new cook here at Lilliput Day Nursery. I have worked in the care industry for over 10 years supporting young adults with daily life. I’m a mum of 3 girls, one of which has been at Lilliput since she was 6 months old. From her time here we have grown to feel we are part of the Lilliput Family. I’m excited to work with the team promoting physical sessions and activities to help the children learn about healthy eating while having fun. By engaging in a healthy eating experience, it teaches them to recognise different foods and encourages them to experiment and try new foods, flavours and textures.
