Why Choose Us?

We have been graded 'Outstanding' by Ofsted in 2007, 2010, 2013 and 2018 and provide the best possible introduction to education for 3 and 4-year-olds. 

Opened in 1904 by George Cadbury, we are committed to his vision of providing the highest standards of care and education for all the children under our care.

Our experienced and expert staff engage our children with learning experiences that will spark a thirst for knowledge for the rest of their lives.

We know that every child is unique and our dedicated team meets the needs of all those under our care, to ensure their wellbeing and give them a perfect start to their education experience.

Our most recent Ofsted inspection said: 

"All staff at Selly Oak Nursery School are committed to meeting children's individual needs. They have created a skilled and knowledgeable team that successfully engages children in their journey of learning. All activities and experiences are planned diligently. Children explore, observe, consider, share, build and record for a wide variety of purposes in a wealth of learning areas and environments."

Open Days

Because of Coronavirus, we are unable to hold our regular open day visits, where we invite parents to visit the School to see what we offer. However, we will be hosting a series of Question and Answer sessions via Zoom with our Deputy Head Teacher.
If you are interested attending one of these sessions, please contact Paula Bayliss or Peter McKinney in the School Office by calling 0121 472 1700 or emailing and we can send you the log in details.
