The Pre school Learning Alliance has launched the Rewind on Ratios campaign to give parents a united voice against planned changes to childcare ratios.

On 13th July we had a wonderful party to celebrate 10 years since moving to Malvern Street site and would like to thank everyone who made this a huge success. Over 250 parents and children, who have attended the nursery over the last ten years, came to the fun packed evening, some from as far away as Russia! It was wonderful to see everyone again and see that some children are now taller than the staff who used to care for them!!!

We are thrilled to report that the Nursery was awarded ‘Good’, which is the highest possible judgement they can award, at this stage in their registration.

On Monday 9th July, Balsall Heath Children’s Centre organised the first ‘Big Conversation’ at the Balsall Heath Library. The centre believes that parents have a crucial part to play in the development and design of services and more importantly that they have a true voice in the decision making process.
This event which was well attended gave parents from Balsall Heath, Anderton Park and Muath Children’s Centres the opportunity to hear about the changes that are taking place in relation to the Children’s Centre Locality Model in Birmingham.

The Carnival Committee would like to apologise to the whole of Balsall Heath for having to take the agonising decision to postpone last Saturday’s event. It is the first (and hopefully the last) time we have had to change the date.
We hope to hold the Carnival in September and will be making an announcement shortly. We hope to see you there!
