Our Nursery

MiniStars Childcare is a private childcare provision accommodating 33 children aged 6 months to 5 years, with a focus on learning through play and utilizing the many experiences gained from the wonderful outdoors.

We strive to ensure that your child will learn, develop and be challenged in natural and diverse ways.

We are a childcare provision which is not just a place for your child to be during the day, but a place where your child will be safe, cared for, and will be completely prepared for the move onto big school. Imbedded in our activities is the time to allow children to explore and experiment by playing with high quality resources and equipment.

Providing inclusive childcare is one of our core values and as such we follow the statutory guidance ‘SEND Code of Practice 2015’ to ensure we meet the needs of all children. Through consistent supervision and interaction with the children we ensure that they feel secure enough to try new ways of examining their surroundings, using all of their senses to learn. Children’s creativity develops most productively within a rich learning environment supported by sensitive and responsive adults. An environment that lets them imitate what they see, experiment with ideas and, more importantly, contribute their own ideas, is an environment where they will achieve the best possible outcomes for their age or stage.

OUR VISION

To promote the well-being of every child to live happy, healthy, safe and rewarding lives.
We aim to build, facilitate and sustain positive relationships with our children, their parents, extended family and the local community. One of our defining characteristics is our ethos of working together to further children’s learning, development and overall sense of well-being. “Our Vision for childcare aims to facilitate care for the family as a whole”
