Shining Stars Pre-School is a small rural pre-school within St Weonards Academy. The school provides outstanding teaching and learning. A place to grow in a family atmosphere.

Our setting offers to provide a safe, happy and friendly environment with experienced staff.  Stimulating learning experiences are created through exploring and play, motivating your children to learn.  Developing linguistically, intellectually, physically and socially from play based activities, whilst working towards early learning goals. Shining Stars provides affordable, high quality care where we respect the parents/carers role in a child’s development.  We work in partnership with parents during their child’s time with us.

Strong links

Each child is allocated a key person when joining the Pre-school.  They help children to settle in and form positive relationships with others.  Through interaction with adults and children they will develop a wealth of early learning skills, which will enable a smooth and confident transition to primary school.  We have very strong links with St Weonards Academy and work with them prior to transition to primary school.  For children that go on to St Weonards Academy, we run transition periods helping achieve familiarisation with the staff and the school building.

Opening Hours & Contact

Monday - Friday 9am-3pm

Staying Active

Children develop by being active and creative in their learning. At the setting we believe that every child is unique and our aim is to cater for every child’s individual needs and learning.

At Shining Stars Pre-School we provide an environment in which all children are supported to reach their full potential. Our setting is on one level and is fully accessible to all children and parents/carers.

We look forward to the opening of our 'Shining Stars Pre-School' in January 2022. Contact the school to book a tour.
