GBNFC at The Chinnbrook Centre

The centre is based on the junction of Trittiford and Chinnbrook Roads in Billesley, Birmingham. It opened in 2001 as the first Surestart Children’s Centre in the West Midlands. From September 2016 it became GBNFC at The Chinnbrook Centre.

The setting provides full day care 8am – 6pm Monday to Friday for children aged 2-5 years, over 48 weeks of the year.

A variety of free funded sessions for 2, 3 and 4 years are available as well as fee paying wrap around or sessional day care options. Call to gain more information

The centre has set closure weeks which consist of one week at Christmas, one week at Easter, and two weeks in the summer holidays. All dates will be provided to you at the point of enquiry.

The setting benefits from a sensory room, a decked, under-cover outdoor area as well as a large play area.

The main nursery area is split in to two age groups 2-3 year olds and 3-5 years old.

Our approach for learning is to create for our children an environment that inspires, is exciting and will engage them in their own learning each and every day. The Nursery has a large open environment which provides a rich, varied and safe space in which children can play, explore and learn. This will contribute greatly to children’s learning and development. The environment is child-centered in that the environment is adapted to the interests of the children. The environment uses authentic and real life objects for children to experience allow them to experience what things really feel like such as plates, cups ad tea pots, giving them the time to learn how to look after things and how things should be treated and that extends to the people around them.
