Quality Childcare Setting​

Shooting Stars Pre-school is nestled in the centre of the community offering a friendly, and well-equipped learning environment for your child.

As well as tending to their educational needs, we care about your child’s wellbeing, safety and happiness.

No two children are the same, which is why we encourage individuality and independent thinking.

As part of our dedication to providing an inclusive environment, we also provide support for children with special educational needs.

We believe with the right care and attention all children can have a positive and nurturing start in life. We’ll ensure they have fun and are prepared for the next big step – primary school.

You can also expect to be regularly invited to parent consultations and stay and play sessions to maintain an active part in your child’s development.

Aspirational Curriculum ​

Our experienced and dedicated team closely follows Star Day Nurseries unique ASPIRE curriculum. This follows the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum in the UK which focuses on five key elements that contribute to the healthy development of any child.

We offer a wide range of play-based activities including mark making, messy play, role play, music and rhythm, phonic practice and movement and construction.

With a mix of outdoor and indoor sessions and the chance to engage with the wider community, there are plenty of opportunities for your child to develop an appreciation for the world around them.

We also encourage critical thinking and independent activities for a well-rounded approach to learning.

Each well-constructed session is designed with five key goals in mind: Learn, Achieve, Protect, Develop and be Ready.
