Shooting Stars Pre-school first opened in September 2012. We are a 32-place pre-school catering for 2-5 year olds offering morning, afternoon or full day sessions, term time only. Session times run from 8:30am – 3:30pm Monday – Friday. We accept government funding of 15 or 30 hours this can be spread across sessions or used for full days.
We also provide a lunch club between 11:30am–12:30pm, for the cost of £4 and parents/carers are required to provide a healthy pack-up for their child.
At Shooting Stars, we have free-flow play which allows the children to play inside and outside freely all day. We offer an exciting range of activities every day including; - mark making, messy play, role play, fine motor skills, music and movement and construction. We promote independence, encouraging the children to wash their hands before snack, they select their own snack from a variety of healthy choices and they are encouraged to pour their own drinks too.
We support the children's learning through all areas of the EYFS and we also run an additional communication and language group daily to help support and promote the children's learning of new words and to gain clarity in their speech. This also supports EAL children by building up their knowledge and understanding of the English language.
At Shooting Stars, we have a very motivated and experienced team that are very well trained this helps us to provide the best care possible for every child. We operate a key person approach which is highly successful in delivering the learning to each and every child which builds a perfect foundation for your child's education. This approach also ensures that you as a parent has a point of contact to discuss your child in depth.
We have worked very hard to build strong and positive relationships with parents, professionals, the community and all local schools which helps to support your child’s development and it also ensures a smooth school transition.
We use an online learning journal called Babysdays. It allows parents to access their child’s learning and development daily, to see photos, videos and observations linked to the EYFS of their child’s learning. It is also a great way to see the fun your child is having daily whilst they are learning!
