Our stars room is designed to take children from birth to 2 years. when children are nearing the end of their time in stars they have some transitional periods in the twinkle stars area.
We work within the Ofsted legal requirement which states we have one adult practitioner to 3 under 2’s. Our stars room is set up to take a maximum of 6 babies at one time.
The stars room is ran by Lucy Bowden and is supported by Kathy Croft. Both of whom are NVQ level 3 qualificated in childcare, both hold up to date first aid certificates and DBS checks, as well as having food hygiene and child protection training.
The babies who attend have planned activities which help them to achieve there developmental milestones. At the same time we believe that the babies learn best through free play. The babies have assess to the outside environment as well as the indoor and often go on outing around the local area.
