So you’ve read the parent pack, completed your registration form and are ready to join us….


Entry to nursery

Before starting at Ministars Childcare we must have received a completed Registration form along with the registration fee and deposit. You must be open and honest about history, safeguarding or development concerns you may have about your children to ensure we can put in early support to help your child reach their full potential.

Home Visit

Once we have received your completed registration form, fee and deposit the nursery will arrange a home visit where possible. Conducting home visits helps to form relationships between parents, practitioners and children; and starts the process of sharing information. It helps to develop a relationship and build trust in a more relaxed environment. After a home visit, parents often feel more confident in approaching a practitioner with comments and questions.

Settling in and Induction

Starting nursery whether on a part time of full time basis is a major change in your child’s life. Every effort is made to ensure a smooth settling in process but, we also understand this can be very unsettling for both you and your child who may not have had any significant time apart. During the settling sessions, your child be assigned a key person. The key person’s role is to help and ensure that every child’s care is tailored to meet their individual needs

What parents say about us.

“Was very nervous about putting my daughter into nursery but Ministars made it very easy and pain free! All the staff are extremely friendly and it is clear to see how much they adore the children.”

“ I believe my child has grown in confidence whilst she has been at nursery. More sociable, better eating habits. And I’m happy they check her development levels.”

“I just wanted to say a big thank you for the way you have helped Samuel developed since he has been with you. (He started a year ago today).”

“I just wanted to say a big thank you for the way you have helped Samuel developed since he has been with you. (He started a year ago today)  He is coming on leaps and bounds at the moment and that’s mainly down to the work you put into the children in your care.”

I took great delight in watching him jump up and down all over the place when I was singing 5 little monkeys the other day as it was one of the songs listed on the news letter as what they had been doing. Then I sang 5 little men and he was shaking his head all over the place before I’d even got to ‘they looked left and right’

” I would always recommend friend without a second thought.”
