About Flying High
Flying High was established in 2017. Our vision for Flying High is to provide a safe and stimulating environment where partnerships with parents and the local community are at the forefront of all we do.
In both our settings, we have fantastic outdoor play spaces for your child to explore and learn in. The building in Ward End was completely refurbished in 2017 and we have underfloor heating throughout the whole property!
In Castle Bromwich our premises have been thoughtfully converted into a nursery premises which has a real homely feel and we have a fantastic 'forest school' environment in which your children can learn and play. Both out premises have private parking available so no worries about dropping off on a busy road. We are very aware of Covid safety and we are lucking enough to have two entrances in each property so that 'bubbles' can enter and leave the building safely.
Our Regional Manager, Zainab, has over 10 years of early years experience. She is also local to the area so she knows very well the needs of the children and families. She's a qualified DSL and is also currently studying for her Level 5 Business Management qualification. We also have an amazing Business Manager, Anzar, who can help you with all your registration and funding queries. All of our staff are paediatric first aid trained - it's part of our commitment to safeguarding your child whilst they are at Flying High.
We have fantastic kitchen facilities at both premises where we whip up healthy breakfasts and snacks and we have a 5 star hygiene rating. If your child stays for lunch in Ward End, we provide a two course, healthy halal meal for your child for just £2 a day from NutriFresh, a Birmingham company who specialise in Early Years catering. Click here to find out more about them and click here to see a sample menu. We also have lots of lunchtime staff on hand to care for your child's needs and see that they learn those important feeding skills early. We are working towards our healthy lifestyle Startwell Award. Children eat their lunch 'as a family' where they serve each other from communal serving bowls. Because we are newly opened in Castle Bromwich we will be preparing meals fo the children ourselves until numbers are high enough to use the caterers.
All our staff are expected to achieve their Level 2 Award in Food Safety for Early Years within one month of coming to work for us.
We have places for children ages from 3 months - 4 years old including FREE government funded places for 2, 3 and 4 year olds, (subject to eligibility for two year olds). To find out more choose from the menu above or click on Admissions and Fees below. Working parents may be eligible for up to 30 hours free child care and we are more than happy to provide flexible arrangements for these families - we know what a difference this funding can make. Also, if you have to pay for your child's nursery care then don't miss out on opening a Tax Free Childcare account where the government will add 25% to what you pay in to help with your fees. Every little helps! Click below to find out more.
