At Little Scallywags, our indoor nursery environment is divided into individual, age appropriate playrooms. All of which are provided with exciting resources and facilities designed to promote a love for learning.
Children are encouraged to access resources independently and staff will plan exciting activities based on children’s interests and developmental needs.
Our Nursery gardens are a very popular part of nursery and are designed to provide a range of experiences for all children to explore and learn new skills. Mud Kitchens, climbing equipment and real-life constructions areas enable little imaginations to flourish.
Parents are encouraged to provide children with the appropriate clothing so the garden can be used in all weathers.
Extra Curricular Activities
Children also have the chance to further extend their learning through educational visits to our local community, from growing delicious vegetables at the local allotments to singing for residents of the local elderly care home.
Please discuss extra-curricular activities with individual settings to see what they offer. We invite parents to annual events such as Graduation celebrations and Christmas Shows.

Little Scallywags Day Nurseries consists of seven settings around the Birmingham and Staffordshire area. The nurseries are a family run business and benefit from the skills and experience of a strong management team, including nursing, qualified teacher status and family support.
Parents as Partners
‘Parents are children’s first and most enduring educators. When parents and practitioners work together in early years settings, the results have a positive impact on children’s development and learning.’ (Early Years Foundation Stage).
At Little Scallywags we advocate a strong parent-nursery link and thus there are various ways you can get involved in your child’s learning and development.
Throughout your child’s time at nursery their learning and development is monitored, tracked and recorded. You know your child best and consequently we encourage you to get involved in this process too.
We run Stay and Play sessions and parent workshops throughout the year where you are welcomed into nursery to get involved in various activities.
Fees are due in advance, to be paid monthly by 5th of every month, by way of bank transfer or card payment.
We also accept childcare vouchers, Tax free child care and Child Grant services.
The nursery has an intercom system and no one is admitted until they are identified by staff.
If somebody other than the named person is collecting your child prior arrangements must always be made.
Little Scallywags is able to provide free places for eligible 2 year olds. Additionally all 3 and 4 year olds are entitled to receive 15 funded hours at nursery. 30 hour funded places are available to eligible children.
Little Scallywags offers various ways your child can access their funded hours; either as full days or sessions.
Coming soon – In light with the new government changes Little Scallywags will soon be offering 15 and 30 hours for eligible children from 9 months of age.
We pride ourselves in being unique with a high standard of individual childcare.
