    About this company

    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. All of THE staff take pride in ensuring they provide a safe, stimulating and caring environment for children to learn and development. They are also very proud to say that both of their nurseries were graded as ‘GOOD’ by Ofsted at their inspections in 2017 and Kings Heath nursery was graded as outstanding in December 2022. During 2018 the Rubery nursery underwent a refurbishment which they are very proud of. It is now a bright, calm and natural environment which is more open plan and allows the 2 – 5 year old children to free flow between all areas and the garden.
