Shining Stars Nursery was originally established in 2008 and has since grown out of dream and has established branches in Bolton, Blackburn and Preston providing excellent child care and education for 0-5 years olds for 51 weeks of the year. We respect all families regardless of social and economic background, ethnicity, abilities, sexual orientation or religious belief. Children with special or additional needs are welcome and we will do all we can to fully include children with disabilities.

We have a dedicated team of highly trained & qualified childcare practitioners who are passionate in the development and the progress of your children. At each of our nurseries our childcare practitioners aim to deliver a rich, stimulating nursery experience to enable your children to achieve their full potential.

Children have access to a range of nursery toys and resources, art and craft, dressing-up, I.C.T. equipment and much more. Shining Stars Nursery also provides out door activities along with swimming lessons and exciting annual trips, giving the opportunity to our children to support and extend their development.

Our Ethos

Our ethos embraces a balanced approach, combining child-led exploration and adult-led guidance. We provide a safe and nurturing learning environment where children are encouraged to take the lead in their discoveries, fostering independence and creativity. At the same time, our qualified practitioners offer thoughtful guidance and structured activities, ensuring a well-rounded education. We believe in fostering a sense of awe and wonder while also preparing children to navigate their educational journey with confidence and readiness for future academic milestones.

Our nurseries offers a diverse range of activities designed to engage and inspire children in hands-on learning experiences. From exploring the fascinating journey of the butterfly life cycle to the excitement of hatching chicks, we provide ample opportunities for children to immerse themselves in real-world, ‘hands on ‘learning. Our engaging curriculum extends beyond the walls of our nursery, with regular trips to enriching destinations such as the library where children can discover the world of books and storytelling, Farms, and Play centres.

We organize fun-filled days that include water sports and special events, creating memorable moments of laughter and enjoyment for all. Alongside these enriching experiences, children can also participate in swimming lessons and take part in creative endeavours such as poem writing competitions. These activities, tailored to the needs and interests of our children, contribute to a well-rounded education and promote a lifelong love for learning.

My 17 month old son has been going to Shining Stars Nursery for almost 9 months now and we absolutely love it.
They are very flexible and have great hours and are always accommodating I my needs and my child’s needs. I can see the growth and learning every day both through the Blossom App which is updated with his food diary and his activities carried out in that day and how he mirrors his learning at home also. All of the teachers in the baby and toddler rooms love having my son and he loves seeing them. And best of all, the children seem very happy there and love the nursery.”

I love that they’re teaching a second language- Arabic which is very important to our religious beliefs. I love how the children are given weekly prayers and letters of the Arabic alphabet to memorise.
