Child 1st operates 3 children’s nurseries – two in the West Midlands (Solihull & Coleshill) and one in Derbyshire (Bakewell). Between all three we are registered for 276 places and our aim is to ensure that our nurseries are an exciting and inspirational place for children and adults alike.

Frequent room meetings and staff meetings enable our team to plan activities suitable to the children in their care, paying particular attention to the individual needs of each child. Our excellent hygiene standards throughout the nursery keep babies and children healthy and safe. Individual bedding sheets and blankets are provided by the nursery and rigorous cleaning regimes are maintained.


We believe all babies have their own personalities and individual characters, and we follow a flexible timetable to reflect this. We offer pre-visits to discuss babies’ needs and keep daily diaries detailing all information – such as how much milk they have had, what they have eaten (where applicable), nappy changes, sleep and rest time. We also chart details of any activities they have participated in.


We inspire children’s hunger for knowledge through play, language and music. We organise activities that stimulate the imagination and use every opportunity to encourage children to play outdoors, take turns, share and be considerate to others.
