Happy Nurseries With Happy Children

A family run business established in 1988


Welcome To Little Ripley Day Nurseries

Little Ripley Day Nurseries is a family-run business which was first established in 1988 and now consists of a group of ten nurseries in Sutton Coldfield, Erdington, Great Barr and Kingstanding areas. Each nursery has a team of experienced and qualified staff, most of whom have been with us for many years, therefore providing continuity of care.

Our aim at Little Ripley is to provide a happy, safe and caring environment, in which the children are relaxed and can enjoy.

With children, we all need to maintain a sense of humour and a balanced flexibility. The Early Years Curriculum is incorporated into all of our games and activities, so the children learn, without feeling under pressure. Whatever their age, our priority is always to make sure that every child enjoys a happy and fun-filled day.

Our children’s well-being and development is best promoted through the nursery nurses and parents collaborating in their child’s care. Our parents, therefore are valued and welcomed into the nursery, where close bonds are formed.

If you have any questions regarding our nurseries, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will be happy to answer them and forward a prospectus.
