Nothing could be more important than the care, happiness and development of your child.
The Group initially started as Little Stars Day Nursery Limited when in 2003 I could not find a nursery where I would be happy to leave my eldest son. As a working parent myself with three young children, I had a nanny and although the care was excellent for my children, I wanted to have the same kind of care, but in addition, in an environment where it allowed my son to integrate with his peers in smaller groups. At the time I was researching schools for my eldest daughter and found I liked the private school model versus the state school model, ie, smaller numbers of children with a higher ratio of team – I wondered why it was not possible to find the same model in the nursery sector.
I decided to research the childcare sector to see what I could find, but it did not exist. I found that nurseries were larger, impersonal and were often purpose built and did not provide the stimulating environment that I was looking for. With a background in Human Resources, I found that team members were often demotivated, working long hours and not supported and valued for the hard work that I knew it must take to look after children. In essence, I wanted to ensure that the nursery where my son would be cared for was committed to providing an inclusive environment in which every child and team member would matter.
I know first-hand that leaving your child in the care of others can be a daunting experience. However, rest-assured that nothing could be more important to all of us than the care, happiness and development of your child (and your peace of mind!).
I am immensely proud of the Stars Childcare Group and our team who all work hard to earn a reputation as being foremost in offering an inclusive environment where every child matters.
