Following on from Government guidance our nurseries have been closed until further notice.
If you are interested in finding out more about either of our nurseries, we will happy to give you a tour when the nurseries are open again.
YMCA Birmingham run two Ofsted registered day nurseries, each offering the best quality childcare to meet the individual needs of every child.
Our nurseries are specifically designed with children in mind: large, bright, colourful play rooms and outdoor play areas, complete with modern equipment and a variety of age appropriate toys that children adore.
We believe that a happy and relaxed environment will help your child feel at home and secure when they attend nursery.
Our approach is friendly and informal creating an atmosphere conducive to healthy social interaction and sound emotional and physical development in their early years.
Our nurseries offer a range of flexible times and sessions to suit the needs of both parent and child at reasonable rates and as a registered charity every penny of our income supports our charitable work.
Our staff and the key worker approach
Our staff enjoy getting to know your child’s personality, comforts and routine to help them ensure they are comfortable in our care. In each room there are qualified and experienced Nursery Practitioners who hold up to date DBS checks. All our staff hold a BTEC National Diploma, NVQ Level 2, 3 and 4 or equivalent and senior staff hold Foundation Degrees and Bachelor of Honours’ in Early Childhood studies. Regular training is accessed to ensure they keep abreast with new regulations to provide a safe and stimulating environment for your child.
Each child will be assigned a Key Worker; a dedicated staff member who fully understands the learning, development and care needs of your child. This gives you the confidence to leave your child at the nursery knowing they will be cared for in a way that is tailored to the information that you provide. Developing a secure bond with their key person allows your child to feel secure and free to explore and play whilst feeling feel safe within the environment. The Key Worker will have activities and quality learning experiences planned for your child based on their individual needs and parents/carers are given both verbal and written feedback, in form of Daily Record Sheets, about their child at the end of each day.
