Welcome to Shooting Stars Nursery, Worcester
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.
Shooting Stars Nursery became the proud owners of the Worcester nursery in 2017. In 2018 the nursery began its transformation into the modern, inspiring nursery setting it is today, with a full internal renovation and garden redevelopment. The beautiful Victorian property, formerly home to Sunnyside nursery, is conveniently located in a peaceful residential area of Barbourne, in close proximity to main transport links in and out of Worcester.
Shooting Stars Nurseries aims to provide children with the ultimate care and education in a rich, stimulating environment with caring, highly trained staff. Each room has been designed to provide children with the opportunity to maximise their potential in a relaxed but purposeful environment. The outside space has also been transformed into an exciting new garden space in which the children can enjoy learning through play in the fresh air in all weathers. 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
Shooting Stars Nursery Worcester has 91 child spaces, with 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.
Shooting Stars Nurseries aims to provide children with the ultimate care and education in a rich, stimulating environment with caring, highly trained staff. Each room has been thoughtfully designed and well-equipped with age-appropriate toys, equipment and educational resources to provide children with the opportunity to maximise their potential in a relaxed but purposeful environment.
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.
There is a large secure outdoor space, featuring an exciting forest school and potions area, 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, moveable structures for climbing and construction 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 are convenient on-street parking bays for parents to use when dropping off and collecting their children.
