About the employer

Letty’s Little Learners Day Nursery is a fully registered Day Nursery set in the heart of Birmingham.

Finding the ideal setting is a very stressful time as you leave your precious bundle of joy with complete strangers. How can anyone ever understand or know what you need? or what you are asking for, how will anyone understand your baby’s needs, like you do?

These are just some of the questions and reasons why I first went into nursery management and secondly why I have always wanted to have my own nursery, a home from home environment and a nursery which can make a difference to those all-important Early Years.

I have over 14 years Nursery Management experience and I am now actually following my dream which I am very excited and passionate about.

I formally managed the Nursery (Funky Monkeys) at Fort Dunlop, until it’s very sad closure in May 2012. There were lots of tears and sadness as the former setting closed its doors and we said our goodbyes to all our children and families.

The good news is that the former site has now been revamped to make way for Letty’s Little Learners Day Nursery.

Letty’s Little Learners is a home from home environment where your children shall grow and flourish together.

Our open plan spacious nursery offers an environment where your children can play, explore and learn whilst having fun.
