Childcare facilities and nurseries

We run three day nurseries on or near to campus to support you while you study.

Friendly, creative and professional staff will make sure your child is learning and growing in a safe, secure and homely environment. Settings are calm and welcoming, with natural resources and extensive outside space. Outdoor learning, sustainable practices, curiosity and mindfulness are key values

The Maples Day Nursery

The Maples

At The Maples (Edgbaston Park Road), curiosity-led learning takes place in a home-from-home setting. Thanks to a location next door to Winterbourne House and Garden, children visit the botanic garden daily to explore and learn. The Nursery uses no single-use disposable wipes, and cloth nappies are welcomed. The Maples is for children aged 2 to 4-years-old.

Opening hours

07.55 - 18.20 Monday to Friday, 50 weeks of the year. Closed for approximately eight days over the Christmas vacation and four days over the Easter vacation.

Children can attend full time, or on a sessional basis of mornings or afternoons.
