Billy Bears Nursery
Located in the Shirley area of Solihull, Billy Bears is situated within a beautiful building just off the Stratford Road and boasts bright, open and very spacious learning environments for children to explore.
We understand that choosing a nursery for your child is a significant decision and we ensure that we provide a homely and welcoming experience that enable both children and parents to feel safe, secure, happy and confident. We offer a flexible and convenient service that can be tailored to meet the needs of parents and we pride ourselves in being part of the local community.
Babies (ages 0-2)
We know that babies need extra special care and attention. That’s why we have a separate room just for them.
With big windows, natural light, a black and white area to stimulate brain development and engaging toys and resources, our youngest children are given a safe space to begin to explore the world around them.
Our primary focus in the baby room is to facilitate a smooth transition from home to nursery. All babies are given close, individual attention that caters to their specific routines and preferences. And of course, this involves lots of cuddles!
Toddlers (ages 2-3)
The toddler room is a bright and spacious area that incorporates inviting areas to promote early reading, mark making, constructing and creating, quiet time and sleeping.
This is the time when children really start to develop their personalities and assert themselves! We support our toddlers to interact successfully with other children and adults, gain confidence to express themselves both verbally and creatively and become that little bit braver to explore their environment.
Children achieve this through hearing songs, stories and conversations to extend their vocabulary, access to a wide range of resources and toys to stimulate their imaginations and plenty of opportunity to participate in outdoor and physical play.
Pre-school (ages 3-5)
As the last stop before ‘big school’, our pre-school room provides our children with the space and freedom to cement their understanding and develop the new skills they need to be successful future learners. Pre-school room is separated into designated areas of learning with tailored resources to allow development across all areas of the Early Years Curriculum.
In Pre-school we promote independence, resilience, verbal and communication ability and more specific skills in reading, writing and maths. Children are encouraged to be considerate of others and their environments, follows rules and routines and manage their own emotions and behaviour. We know these are the key attributes children need to prepare them for the transition to school. This is where you’ll witness your child grow to believe in themselves and recognise their own talents and capabilities!
Billy Bears Outdoor Play Area
At Billy Bears we understand that some children prefer to learn without ceilings and walls! That’s why we offer the full curriculum outdoors, every day and all year round. Your child will experience how to navigate space, learn about the importance of physical exercise, expand their knowledge of the natural world and have the opportunity to grow their own plants and vegetables.
Billy Bears offers fun and engaging child care for children aged 4-8 during those long school holidays! Our Y-Space kids engage in team sports and games, arts and crafts, cooking, discos and parties and trips to the many attractions that Birmingham has to offer.
