  • We are also extremely pleased to announce that Shining Stars (Preston) is on its way to becoming a beacon nursery throughout Lancashire. Shining Stars Preston has completed and achieved a Lancashire Quality Award called Step into Quality.

    The Lancashire Quality Award (LQA) scheme was developed by Lancashire County Council's Sure Start, Early Years and Childcare Service as a quality assurance scheme to support all childcare providers across Lancashire in reflecting on their current good practice and developing further to provide a high quality service for children and families.

  • To gain the LQA, all staff in the childcare setting spent time working together through a series of modules, thinking about what they do, observing each other and the children, gaining the views of parents and children and working on further areas for development.

  • The scheme focuses on providing exciting and stimulating learning experiences for children learning through play and having fun.

  • After one year of hard work, and the combined effort of our staff and management, we have now completed our modules, which have been verified by a panel of experts (childcare consultants). We have also been invited to an awards ceremony on the 13th of March at Barton Grange Hotel to be officially presented with our Award.

  • Despite achieving this award, we are conscious of raising our standards even more and therefore have already enrolled onto another award.
