Day Nursery & Pre-school in Shirley, Solihull


We are excited to announce our new nursery, Shirley Green, will open in Spring 2024.

Shirley Green will be situated in the heart of Shirley on the site of the Old Edwardian Sports Club. While waiting for the doors to open, the nursery is undergoing a loving renovation to ensure that children at Shirley Green will receive the best possible start.

For over 25 years, Tommies Childcare has provided children with exciting and memorable early years experiences, which is precisely what families can expect when choosing Shirley Green.

Why Shirley Green?

We believe in creating calming, safe, and playful settings through an open-ended approach to early years.

Your child will experience a unique learning framework called ‘In the Moment Learning’. Your child will be free to discover and learn about what interests them most. Learn more about In the Moment Learning here.

We offer free and unlimited settling-in sessions, allowing you and your child to gradually become used to nursery life and the change of scenery. You can have as many unlimited settling-in sessions as it takes until your child is genuinely happy at Shirley Green.

Keep tabs on what your child gets up to during a day at nursery through the ParentZone app. Staff will share regular updates, including moments of learning, sleep times, nappy changes, and more.

Regular information evenings and workshops will be held to support you in developing your child’s learning at home.

Shirley Green will pride itself on excellent parent partnerships – parents will be actively involved in developing the nursery through parent forums and workshops.

BABY ROOM (6 weeks – 18 months)

Our Baby Room will cater for the youngest children in our care, providing them with a safe, calm but inviting atmosphere in which to grow and develop. Babies at Shirley Green will also benefit from a separate sleep room, where they can rest their heads after a busy morning of afternoon of play and exploring.

FIRST STEPS ROOM (18 months – 2 years)

The First Steps Room at Shirley Green is the perfect place to explore when children are between the baby and toddler stages. Children this age need a bit of extra space in which to take their first steps, which is just what they’ll get at Shirley Green as they become more mobile.

TODDLER ROOM (2 – 3 years)

Exploring and creating adventures is what being a toddler is all about, which is why our Toddler Room will actively encourage the 2-to-3’s to do what they do best.

PRE-SCHOOL ROOM (3 – 5 years)

From creative constructions to wide-ranging interests, there will always be something unique and exciting happening in our Pre-school Room. Pre-school is the last step in your child’s early years of education. As children approach primary school age, our staff will help to prepare them for school and ensure they are ready for their next big step.


All children need time to stretch those little legs. Our garden will give all the children at Shirley Green the chance to do this regularly. The great outdoors provides children with unique learning opportunities that just can’t be replicated indoors, that’s why we are committed to letting children roam around our garden every day- come rain or shine.


07:30 – 18:00


60 places,
full time and part time sessions available
