Welcome to Shooting Stars Nursery, Wolverhampton
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 also check our news page and Facebook for planned Open Days.
Our Wolverhampton nursery, which opened in 2014, is located in a prime position on Compton Road West, one of the main routes to and from the west side of Wolverhampton City Centre. The original building has been refurbished and maintained to an extremely high standard to create light, warm and nurturing environments in which your child will feel both at ease and inspired.
Shooting Stars Nursery Wolverhampton has an established 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 qualified and 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 86 child places split between four base rooms, each specifically designed for babies, pre-toddlers, toddlers and pre-school. Each room has been thoughtfully designed for a particular age group and is well-equipped to a very high standard with stimulating, educational resources, toys and games and a range of small and large equipment to encourage relevant physical development. The building is accessible for wheelchair users via the entrance ramp to the rear.
All children at Shooting Stars are given the opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors in all weathers. There are two large secure external spaces, creating an extensive outdoor environment with a variety of activities on offer for busy hands and feet. This incorporates a grass area and trike track for active play, mud kitchen and sand pit for creative and messy activities, and an allotment for the children to get involved in planting. The forest area gives the children a closer look at nature, whilst the climbing structures and tunnel are the focus of many active and imaginative games. 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. An accessible parking bay is located within close proximity to the nursery entrance.
