Hi my name is Charlotte.
I am a level 3 qualified nursery nurse with 19 years of experience in childcare. Nine of which have been as part of a management team. I joined Lilliput Day Nursery in June 2010 as Deputy Manager at the Kings Heath Day Nursery. I then moved to the Rubery nursery in September 2010 after being promoted to manager. Being nursery manager many challenges but it is also a very rewarding role. I love watching the children enjoy the experiences we offer here at Lilliput and seeing them grow and develop. I also get a lot of satisfaction from building relationships with the many children and their families that come here.
Hello, my name is Mandeep.
I am the deputy Manager at our Kings Heath Setting and the room leader for our baby unit. I joined Lilliput Day Nursery in the early part of 2018, with 4 years previous management experience.
I am a level 6 qualified practitioner with 12 years experience working in early years, completing my BA Hons Degree in Early Childhood Studies in 2014. I believe that children can reach their full potential, being surrounded by positive role models who care for them.
I work alongside our staff team to deliver the highest standards of care and learning to all our children and work closely in partnership with our families.

Lilliput Day Nursery (Rubery Day Nursery) is at the top of Rubery Village, just off the A38 Rubery bypass with easy access to Bromsgrove, Catshill, Longbridge, Northfield and Birmingham. It has its own car park which is accessed via Whetty Lane.
We opened the doors to Rubery Day Nursery in June 2005 after extensively converting and refurbishing it to an extremely high standard taking it from a manufacturing warehouse and offices to a day nursery with a purpose built interior which is registered to take 50 children. The rooms are bright and spacious with plenty of room for children to move around freely and safely.
“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
We were last inspected by Ofsted in February 2017 and very proudly achieved ‘GOOD’ as our outcome.
