Hello, my name is Annette. I am a Level 3 qualified nursery nurse with 11 years of childcare experience. I joined Lilliput Day Nursery, Rubery in 2005 as a newly qualified nursery nurse and gained a wealth of knowledge and experience within the company and soon progressed to room leader, Senior Nursery Nurse and then Deputy Manager. In 2010 Alison and Steve opened the Kings Heath Nursery and I was asked to manage it.
We opened our doors in June 2010 after extensively refurbishing it to an extremely high standard, taking it from 2 office suites to a bright and homely 40 place day nursery.
We were last inspected by Ofsted in November 2013 and very proudly achieved ‘GOOD’ as our rating.
“Children enjoy their time at this welcoming and supportive nursery where they make good progress in their learning and development. They are supported by practitioners who have a good understanding of how children learn.” – OFSTED
Our location in Kings Heath
We are a busy, popular setting that has good links with the local community. A lot of our nursery places are filled from recommendations. Our management team and all the staff work well together to ensure we continue to meet the high standards that Alison and Steve expect.
Lilliput Day Nursery, Kings Heath is conveniently situated on the main Alcester Road South with easy access to Birmingham City Centre, Kings Heath and the Maypole. It has its own car park and a bus stops right outside the premises.

This is a large bright stimulating unit that consists of 2 rooms separated by double doors. There is a separate milk kitchen, messy area and changing area.
The babies are provided with toys and activities such as stacking rings, bricks, fabric books and shape sorters to encourage the early development of hand eye co ordination, fine and gross motor skills and to develop curiosity and social skills.

Babies have direct access to the garden from this room and staff promote language skills through verbal games, rhymes, singing and stories as well as their normal daily conversation.
At the end of each day parents are given their child’s diary which has been completed during the day informing them of what their child has eaten and drunk, nappy happenings, activities, any development milestones, sleep times and messages. Parents are encouraged to take the diaries home and contribute to them about the things their child does with them.
