Monday to Friday mornings
8.30am - 11.20am
Our preschool sessions are planned and taught by UK qualified early years teachers and are for children aged 2 to 5 years. Children are welcome regardless of their level of English.
We believe a child's experience in the early years is so important. Play is central at Shooting Stars and child-led learning takes place every day. If a child is happy and confident then they are open to learning.
The children arrive between 8.20am and 8.30am and find their name to self-register themselves. They are then free to play and explore their environment. There are always a wide variety of stimulating activities available for the children to explore independently and we are there to support the children in their play when needed.
We then stop for circle time when we sing songs and do some age appropriate number and letter activities. We then have story time and snack before the children go outside to play.
The children are collected for home time at 11:20am. On some days the children who are 3 years and older can stay for a club until 12.15 or 12.30pm.
At Shooting Stars, each child is valued as an individual and their unique needs and interests are recognised.
