Selly Oak Tree Day Nursery Ltd - Employer

Here at Selly Oak Tree Day Nursery, we believe children develop and progress best in an environment in which they feel cared for and secure much like a caring ‘home from home’ environment. For that reason, we are ensuring we keep that homely feel. We also feel it is important that each room layout will encourage children’s natural in-built curiosity and desire to explore. Our vision is to create a caring atmosphere where children feel liberated and inspired to learn and make friends.
