General Information

Shine Nursery is registered with Ofsted as a 72-place day nursery for children aged 0-5 years. It is in Quarry Bank, in the West Midlands, close to Cradley Heath Train Station and Merry Hill Shopping Centre. The nursery is a beautiful, light, airy and well-resourced environment both indoors and out. We offer high quality care and learning and are inclusive of all children. 

Hours of opening 7.45 am – 5.45 pm (51 weeks a year - closed for Christmas week) 

We offer full or part time places to fee paying parents at times to suit parents/ children’s needs and when available.

We offer fully funded free places for:

  • eligible two year olds (usually between 9.15am and 12.15pm or 1.00pm and 4.00pm, daily during term time)

  • all 3 and 4 year olds for 15 hours a week (usually between 9.00am and 12.00 noon, daily during term time)

  • 30 hours a week for eligible children (usually between 9.00am and 3.00pm, daily during term time


We also offer a breakfast club or teatime club for parents who would like to add on extra hours to their free entitlement.

We are happy to discuss parents’ individual childcare needs and we will try to accommodate them, wherever possible, depending on staffing levels within the nursery.

Price lists are available on request. Fees are paid monthly in advance by Standing Order or Childcare Vouchers. Parents do not pay for the week that the nursery is closed or for Bank Holidays that fall outside of the closure week. A non-returnable registration fee of £50 is payable to secure a place for fee paying children and for us to ensure resources are ready and available ready for start date. 

We offer a further 10% discount for siblings.

Please do get in touch if you would like a visit. 

If you decide to take a place at Shine Nursery, then you will complete admission forms and we will obtain proof of ID etc (in line with lawful practice) We will allocate a member of staff (key person) who will build a positive relationship with you and your child in order to identify and meet their needs. The key person will be a point of contact for you, but of course you can speak to the manager or other staff at anytime, as necessary. 

The next stage will be to arrange settling in sessions so that the key person can get to know your child’s likes, dislikes, learning styles and abilities. We will then arrange a start date.

We look forward to welcoming you and your child to our nursery. See you soon…
