Welcome to Shooting Stars Nursery, Kings Norton
We understand that choosing a nursery for you child can be a very difficult decision so please call or email us if you have any questions. We would be delighted to talk to you about the care we provide here at Shooting Stars and can arrange a visit at a time to suit you so you can explore our setting during a normal nursery day. Please check our social media or Daynurseries profile for upcoming Open Days.
Our Kings Norton nursery opened in January 2019 and was awarded Ofsted Outstanding in October 2022. The striking setting occupies beautifully renovated and substantially extended premises at the site of the former NHS offices at Barbara Hart House.
Shooting Stars Nursery Kings Norton has a qualified staff team caring for children aged from 3 months to 5 years. The nursery has bright spacious rooms in which the children can learn and develop. Each room has caring, dedicated staff, who specialise in each age group to ensure that each child reaches their full potential. We encourage and support all staff to advance their professional qualifications to the fullest extent. All meals are produced by our cook onsite and our menus are reviewed regularly to provide a healthy and balanced diet that the children enjoy.
At Shooting Stars, we recognise the importance of working in partnership with parents and we are committed to meeting the needs of the children by consulting with parents and carers on a regular basis. Our management and staff team have an ‘open door policy’ and so encourage you to talk to us whenever you would like to about your child’s needs, progress and development. We also love to hear about what your child has been interested in at home so we can ensure continuity of care when at nursery.
Inside the Nursery
The nursery offers 93 child places split between four spacious base rooms, each specifically designed for the age and developmental stage of babies, pre-toddlers, toddlers and pre-school. Each room has been thoughtfully designed to provide children with the opportunity to maximise their potential in a relaxed but purposeful environment. Each room is well-equipped with stimulating, educational resources, toys and games and a range of small and large equipment to encourage relevant physical development.
The nursery building is highly physically secure and covered by high definition CCTV, including ‘Parentcam’, which enables parents encrypted secure access to on-line visibility of your child during attendance hours for your complete peace of mind. Parents are limited to view only rooms their child is using during their booked sessions.
The building is accessible for wheelchair users via the entrance ramp, and features a lift to the first floor from Reception.
There is a very large secure outdoor space to the rear of the nursery, which has been carefully planned to ensure the children are able to access challenging, open-ended, first hand opportunities that are both safe and enjoyable!
All children at Shooting Stars are given the opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors in all weathers. The secure garden to the rear offers the children both open space and a variety of activities for busy hands and feet. There are grass and paved areas for active play and trikes, a mud kitchen and sand pit for messy and creative play, boulders and structures for climbing and an allotment area for digging and planting. The decked area is a firm favourite that provides a stage for children to express and enjoy themselves with their friends in imaginative activities and role play. Our outdoor equipment offers the children inspiration for a plethora of creative and fun games and activities.
There is a large car park to the front of the property for your convenience when dropping off and collecting your child.
Please contact us if you have any questions or would like to arrange a visit. We would be delighted to show you around Shooting Stars Kings Norton!
