Pre-School Welland

Stars Pre-school Welland provides a safe, happy and stimulating educational environment in which children are valued as unique individuals.

Learning through play and interaction, they are empowered to explore their environment. We promote an atmosphere of mutual respect and encouragement where children are prepared for their next steps in learning, to help them become happy, confident, creative, sociable and enthusiastic learners, who welcome challenges.

A strong partnership between home and preschool is fostered, liaising closely with parents, other professionals and through linking with our community.


Stars Pre-School Welland has been an integral educational resource for under-fives in the Welland and Dogsthorpe area since 1998. We offer 55 places for children aged 2 to 4 years, from Monday to Friday for 40 weeks of the year. Children can attend a variety of sessions between 8am – 6pm and flexible arrangements to accommodate children in receipt of the funded 30 hours entitlement is available.

The building is easily accessible and is situated in the Acorn Children’s Centre in Welland, adjoining the Welland Primary School. This means the setting has direct access to a wide range of local professionals to help support families through ever growing pressures within the community and at home.

We started our journey with Stars Preschool Welland back in 2016 with my eldest son and continued with my other son who started in 2018. They both absolutely loved going to their nursery. The staff are amazing and very caring, and the boys treated them almost like a part of the family. They both made some great friendships and developed some amazing life skills with the help of lovely ladies. I would most definitely recommend this nursery and to be completely honest there is not even one negative thing I can recall related to the nursery. – Parent

My little girl started here in September, and I couldn’t be prouder of how much she has come on since doing so. She has the best relationship with her key person and key-buddy, and I know when I leave, she will be getting lots of love and care from the staff there.
Being a full-time mum can take its toll and your esteem when you know your little one needs to go into the nursery. However, I know she is getting the best care and learning when I do go off to work myself. – Parent

My daughter absolutely loves her pre-school. She is very close to her key worker and has made lots of friends. The staff are amazing and have made her transition into pre-school a wonderful experience for her and for us.
My daughter comes home every day with stories about what she’s been up to, new information and new songs she learnt. I would definitely recommend Stars Pre-School Welland! I am glad we chose this setting for our little one. – Parent

Stars Pre-School Welland is an amazing nursery. This nursery has a positive atmosphere and a variety of areas inside the nursery and in the playground for the children to learn and explore. The staff at this nursery are wonderful. They are a pleasure to talk to and they are very hardworking. The staff are very supportive and always ready to help. The staff at the nursery encourage, motivate, and help your child to develop. The staff created such a strong and loving bond with my children which made their experience at this nursery memorable. I also feel that my children have become confident and have learnt a lot from this nursery. I only have nothing but positive things to say about this nursery from my own experience. I feel that this is an amazing nursery that deserves a lot of recognition for the hardworking and dedication that all the staff put in. I always recommend this nursery to family and friends. I also recommend this nursery because it is a brilliant nursery to attend. 10/10. – Parent

Both my sons have attended this preschool for the past 3 years. Very warm and friendly staff who try their best to support both children and parents. Really recommend this preschool. Setting is clean, engaging and fun. lots of open and event days to keep you informed of your children’s information and opportunities to have a great experience with your children. Recommend Highly! – Parent

Fantastic staff always cater for the children’s needs. My LG is always happy when she comes out and has always had a good time. I highly recommend stars in Welland. – Parent

I will always be so grateful to this to preschool for welcoming my little man with open arms, for teaching him and for also being a friend to him. My son created a bond with each and every person here even after a difficult few weeks at another preschool before this one, the ladies here made him feel comfortable and safe. When my son first started here he struggled with his speech and within months he was always talking or singing and I appreciate all the help this preschool gave me to get him where he is today because he’s such a clever little man. He’s now at big school but misses everyone at Stars-Preschool Welland. – Parent
