We are very happy to say that we regularly receive compliments from our parents on the quality of the service we offer and on the beneficial effect we appear to have upon the children.

Whilst few people actually put pen to paper to fully express their appreciation, below are some of the comments that we have recently received

A valuable lesson learnt on this trip. The children had an opportunity to look at different items of food, learning names and categories, i.e. fruit or vegetables. My child shared details of what items she bought from a list.

An excellent opportunity looking at different forms of transport. Some children may have never seen a garage. My daughter came home and told me how the mechanic checked cars and made it work.

An informative meeting, making parents aware of what plans and strategies have been implemented in the nursery. The meeting has been an excellent opportunity to share our opinions on the changes for a positive environment for all staff, parents and children.

An interesting trip to a Mosque. It is a great for youngsters to experience different places of worships. These sort of trips help children understand and learn to respect the diversity in religions we have today.

My Child thoroughly enjoyed travelling on the different forms of transport. An excellent opportunity for young children to experience buses and train. For some, this may have been their very first experience, as we have all become custom to cars.

Read, Read, Read! We are all told how important it is for young children to get into reading. This is a skill for life and it all starts at young tender age. It’s brilliant the children are having the opportunity to share, look at, read and discuss different forms of literature. It broadens their minds and imagination. Keep it up.

"I have two children at Shining Stars Nursery. One in the baby room and one in the pre-school room. Both children have attended from 6 months. I particular value the excellent links with nursery. For example on World Book Day, children were asked to do extreme reading at home. Both my children participated in this and it was brilliant to see their pictures that I had emailed in displayed in the foyer.

As my husband and myself are both working parents the newsletters that we receive are very informative and help us to plan in advance for any coming events. As well as the parents evenings, which give us both the opportunity to attend at a time when we are free, so we can work in partnership with the nursery to develop learning for both my children."

"I have been a parent at Shining Stars Nursery since it first opened in 2011. The nursery from then to till now has undergone some immense changes. I cannot stress how much it has improved. The current management has implemented so many changes. Most recently the learning curriculum and the feedback/support system for parents. Another major change is the outdoor play area. When my son attended from 2011-2013, the outside area consisted of very little – an outer path for children to ride bikes on and some tyres for physical play.

When my daughter started at Shining Stars in 2014, I joined the Parent Partnership group. At one of the meetings, the manager discussed with us her ideas of improving the outdoors. She showed us the Cool Canvas plan and we discussed which areas of the plan we would like to go ahead as phase one. We chose to have the climbing frame and workshop/kitchen area set up first.

After phase one was completed, the manager insisted me to take a tow of the outdoors and asked my opinion on it. It was lovely that she followed up on my involvement and still continues to do so. Being a parent at Shining Stars Nursery, I’m always made to feel part of the team."

"After a recommendation from a friend, our son, Eesa started SSN at 7 months old. He is now turning 2 and we are really pleased with the choice we made. We feel SSN offers a warm, home environment and he loves it! We trust the staff, and we particularly enjoy using the Tapestry app where we can see how he is progressing on a monthly basis. Eesa has developed good social skills, he has grown in confidence and he has picked up a great range of vocab! "

"I think they should use Shining Stars Nursery, it's the place for your child. Parents are kept up to date and I have no worries about leaving my daughter with the staff.

They always put my mind at rest. You just know they are getting the full attention that a child needs."

"Shining Stars is a wonderful nursery. All the staff are loving, caring and very welcoming.

My son Caiden loves it, he enjoys talking to his family about nursery, friends and teachers. It's a brilliant idea that the teachers ask the children to say Miss followed by their name as it will give the children the confidence to say it at primary school."

"I am writing to let you know what I think of Shining Stars Nursery in Great Lever that my son attends.

He has learnt so much whilst being there within the first couple of weeks.

I noticed big changes within the first couple of weeks. I noticed big changes in my my son as he has started playing by himself which he never did at home.

He sings and does hand movements whilst singing. He has learnt so much and I hope he will improve even more".

"Our daughter had just turned two when she started at SSN, we were worried about how she would settle due to her age- but Alhamd-, she has settled really well. The staff have been brilliant with her, they make her feel safe and cared for. She enjoys coming to nursery. Also as parents, its never easy leaving your child with someone else, but knowing that she is in an Islamic setting gives us that piece of mind and we know she is in safe hands."

"All at Shining Stars Nursery, To briefly summarise the 2011/12 academic year for my daughter Safiyya Member I would proudly say that from the time she was picked up by Moulana Zakir Sahib who was not only professional but also extremely caring and showed a lot of love and affection towards the children. This character of Moulana's brought out the enthusiasm and the willingness in the child to want to attend and learn. Therefore from the outset it created ease for the staff at the nursery who further developed the child in her speech, confidence and most importantly in her beliefs of islamic ethics. The graduation ceremony and the performance of the Goldilocks play was of awarding winnings standards. Each child in their lines spoke with confidence and were very clearly heard, it was a display of all the staff's hard work over the academic year. Therefore I would like to congratulate all the staff at Preston Shining Stars Nursery for the brilliant job done throughout the whole year and especially in putting together the graduation ceremony. I hope and pray that Shining Stars Nursery continue there hard work and become pioneers in the field of nurturing our young children."
