Grendon and Billesley Nursery & Family Centre
This site is based at on Grendon Road in Warstock, Birmingham. It opened in June 2004 as a Neighbourhood Nursery designed to provide affordable, high quality day care for families.
It is 97-place setting for children aged 0 –12 years.
The setting offers 7.30am-6.30pm, Monday – Friday, all year round provision. In addition, we offer a before- and after-school for children from the neighbouring Grendon Primary School.
Free Funded sessions are available for 2-5year olds. We offer a range of sessions, including a stretched funding offer which is over 48-week of the year.
Free funding session are between 15-30 hours for those children ages 2-5 years old
The nursery has 5 main rooms which are spilt into different age groups from our little ones at 6 weeks to our children preparing to take their next steps in their learning adventure at School.
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. Our environment is filled with authentic and real life objects and those from the natural world. Children are given the opportunity to explore and use their imagination to take their play and learning where ever they wish it to go.
The centre benefits from a sensory room, large outdoor space including tree house and tree area which is fantastic for den building and exploring nature as well as its own planting area.
Hi my name is Taryn Moss and I am the Nursery Manager of Grendon and Billesley Nursery and Family centre. I have been with the company for over 15 years, when I started back in 2004 I knew that childcare was what I wanted to do. I started my journey as a nursery practitioner as well as continuing my studies to better my knowledge of theories of child development in which would enable me to deliver and lead an inspiring early years setting. In the 15 years I have been a part of GBNFC I have worked my way up to my current position, learning along the way.
I believe one of the most important things for the families is the support we give to each and every family that comes through our doors, the welfare of children and families is paramount. The enabling environment in our setting gives the children the skills to develop as individuals. Watching the children learn through the play opportunities, developing the skills to grow and achieve their potential is so rewarding for myself and the team here at GBNFC.
