Garretts Green Nursery School is a Local Authority Maintained Nursery School situated on the East side of Birmingham (near the boundary with neighbouring Solihull) in the constituency of Yardley and serving children and families from the local Sheldon and Yardley areas of the city.
There are shops nearby, and a library and churches where children are able to visit. There are local Primary and Secondary schools close by and some of the children attend swimming sessions at the local swimming baths. Sheldon Country Park provides opportunities for links and visits.
The Nursery was opened over 60 years ago in 1947 and has a long history of supporting and being valued by the local community. Our partnerships and work with parents and families are a particular feature and strength of the school.
The Nursery currently provides education and care for three and four year old children, most of whom attend on a part-time basis for five mornings or afternoons each week. Full-time place are limited and are allocated according to need based on Local Authority criteria. Places are fully allocated in the spring term for a September start with any unfilled places allowing children to enter in January following their third birthday in September-December.
We have a six place Resource Base for children who have an Education Health and Care Plan. We are very proud of inclusive practice.
