The best start in life for your child

Seesaws Day Nursery & Nursery School

A personal message from Lady Jayne Ackers – Principal


Welcome to Seesaws – a family of five nurseries, three pre- and after-school clubs and two holiday clubs in Birmingham and Wolverhampton.

My late husband Sir James Ackers and I launched Seesaws in 1994, when I was a working mum who wanted the best care for my son Nicky, whom we’d adopted from Romania four years earlier.

Using my skills and qualifications gained from more than 20 years’ teaching child development and home economics, I drew up plans for a day nursery that would exceed the expectations of even the most discerning parents.

Our first day nursery opened in Wylde Green and since then the business has grown in both size and reputation. We have worked hard to maintain our exacting standards and to offer parents flexible care packages that suit different work patterns

Seesaws is more than just a nursery: it is a place where children thrive and have fun.
We believe that happy, contented children mean happy, contented parents.
