Shooting stars is our area for children three years and above.
The ratio in this area is one adult practitioner to eight children.
The children share the space with the Twinkle stars group.
In this area the children are getting ready to move up to school with more adult led structured activities, to enhance their independence. The children have regular access to our outside classroom throughout the day. The children are provided with a wide range of activities throughout the day and are able to access all the resources within the environment independently.
The Shooting Stars have four permanent members of staff and supported by others.
Michelle who is our manager who has a Foundation degree in Early Years, Karen who is our deputy manager and holds a BA Hons degree in early years and childhood studies, Josh who has an NVQ Level 3 in childcare and Bethany who is working towards her NVQ Level 3 in childcare.
