A very warm welcome to Shining Stars Nursery- Big & Little Stars
We are passionate about providing an exceptional education for our children which is why our Shining Stars Nursery offers 2 qualified teachers as well as a specialist music teacher. We believe that having a qualified teacher is fundamental to delivering the highest quality Early Years Education and the best possible start to a childs educational career. The children at Shining Stars have weekly music lessons and access to activities and numerous resources providing an outstanding environment for learning.
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.
Our nursery is situated in the grounds of Wallace Fields Infant School offering sessions for children aged 2-4.
Children can start in our Shining Stars Nursery from the term after their 2nd Birthday and continue with us through to the end of their pre-school year.
Nursery Sessions are split by age group and run Monday-Friday, term time only:
Little Stars Nursery (aged 2-3) 12:15pm-15:30pm

Little Stars Nursery children must attend a minimum of 3 sessions per week in their first term, and 5 sessions per week from thereon after. Children attending Little Stars automatically move into Big Stars in their pre-school year.
