About Pathways – Our Story

Pathways Nurseries and Childcare Centres Ltd is a well established (1989) family run group of children’s nurseries offering a flexible combination of high quality education and childcare, to meet the individual needs of children and their families. Our provision is inspected by Ofsted and our most recent inspection was ‘Outstanding’. At Pathways, every child matters and is treated as a unique individual. Our quality is based on strong leadership, clear principles and a drive for ongoing improvement. We work with and listen to parents, striving for every child to receive the best possible start and reach their potential. Our settings are located in Solihull and Warwickshire.

In addition to the nursery provision we also offer some ‘Out of School Provision’ including breakfast club, after school club and holiday provision for children aged 3-11 years, known as Pathways Kidzones.

We look forward to meeting you.
