Children aged 2.5 years to school age are welcome in pre-school with a staff ratio of 1:4 or 1:8 age dependant. The Nursery Manager and qualified teachers with many years of experience are responsible for pre-school with help from employed staff on training courses and students from South Cheshire College and Total People.
Our aim in pre-school is to encourage positive socialisation through play, independence and support by a staff member, independence in all areas of hygiene and dressing/undressing and good communication skills with children and adults alike.
Facilities in this room include a wide range of toys, puzzles and exploratory equipment. Home corner, story corner, creativity area, construction toys, a den and comfy chair for cuddles.
The children can have direct access to the outside to dig in the sandpit, play on the bikes and trikes or have fun with the various outside toys.
We plant seasonal plants and dig for worms and spiders in our path through the gate alongside the building (Within the grounds).
As with toddlers and babies, a Learning Journal is completed whilst children are with us and filled with the fun things that have been done at Nursery along with their developmental process to share when they go to school.
Bright Stars will endeavour to provide equal opportunities for all children regardless of social background, race, colour, ethnicity, religion, language, gender and learning ability.
