Bright Stars Nursery is a setting based in the Grimesthorpe area of Sheffield. Our nursery is located within a community centre, known as Yorkshire Muslim Academy.
At Bright Stars Nursery we believe every child should be encouraged and supported to become a competent learner right from their early years. A child who can be resilient, self assured and confident about their Islamic and British identity.
Our nursery has an Islamic ethos but we promote diversity and have an inclusive approach – children from all religious and ethnic backgrounds are welcome in our nursery. We have children from diverse backgrounds. There are approximately eight to nine different languages spoken within the nursery, we have staff that can accommodate for most of these languages.
We have about 10 members of staff. One of the managers is NNEB qualified with over 20 years of experience of working in different early years services; the other manager has an Early Years Foundation degree and all the practitioners are minimum level 3. We have a Business Support Officer who works a couple of days a week and supports the team with the administration duties. We have a cleaner who comes in every evening after the children have gone to ensure high levels of hygiene.
Bright Stars operates five days a week term time only from 9am – 3.30pm.
