A very warm welcome to Shining Stars Nursery!
We understand how important children’s pre-school years are and we're very proud of the incredible learning opportunities our amazing Nursery provides! We welcome you to join one of our tours of the Nursery whilst in session, for you and your child to discover the wide range of exciting learning opportunities and fun the children enjoy at every session. We run tours once a month so please see our School & Nursery tours page for more information.
Did you know, we are now offering places for 30 hours FREE Childcare commencing September 2017.
Click here to read the Government update and sign up for updates.
As you may be aware, from September 2017 most working parents of 3 and 4 year olds will be eligible for an extra 15 hours of free childcare a week, term time only. Added to parent’s current universal entitlement of 15 hours, this means working parent’s free early education entitlement could increase to a total of 30 hours a week, term time only. I am sure this exciting news will raise lots of questions for parents so we have tried to put together some FAQs on a 30hrs funding letter which you can download at the bottom of the screen.
Please see below details on how to apply for the 30 Hours Funding
