About the employer

Lilliput Day Nursery Rubery was opened in 2005 by Alison and Steve Lane, followed by Lilliput Day Nursery Kings Heath in 2010. They have 2 children and their aim was to provide good quality, affordable childcare that they would be happy to send their children to.

Alison is a NNEB qualified Nursery Nurse with more than 30 years experience in the childcare sector, having worked in private nurseries and Birmingham Social Services gaining a wealth of knowledge and experience of a wide diversity of children and their families in day nurseries and family centres. For 5 years Alison also worked in the Early Years department at a further education college teaching and training future nursery nurses.

Steve is an experienced building contractor with over 30 years experience. He originally refurbished both nurseries to an extremely high standard and continues to maintain and develop them. In recent years both nurseries have had their gardens refurbished again and during 2018 Steve refurbished Rubery and Kings Heath again.
