Little Stars

Age Range   3-4

Opening Hours   11.45am – 3.15pm (including lunch break)

Staffing Ratio 1:8 as a minimum. All staff are suitably qualified and experienced

We are delighted to offer additional afternoon childcare for those children who secure a place at Knowle CE Primary Academy Nursery.

Little Stars will offer learning and development opportunities which are focussed on the needs and interests of individual children whilst taking into account the length of the learning day and the prior experiences of morning nursery. Our team of staff will be led by Miss Griffiths our Childcare and Extended Services Manager who will plan and deliver an exciting range of activities interspersed with opportunities to rest and recuperate from all the fun which can be very exhausting when you are only 3!!

To ensure that the children benefit fully from all of our wonderful resources and facilities and that every opportunity is taken to support their development, the Little Stars team will work in close collaboration with the morning nursery teaching team.

It is the intention that children stay until 3.15pm in order to get the best from the session. Little Stars is a time when children are developing and building on skills and staying until 3.15pm will be preparation for full time education. However, children can be collected before 3.15pm in exceptional circumstances.


After the children have finished morning nursery they will eat their lunch supervised by Little Stars staff. Children may order a hot lunch or bring their own packed lunch. Hot lunches are charged at £1.85 per day and may be ordered via the school office at the start of the term.

We can also offer children the opportunity to participate in weekly Jo Jingles and Leapfrog Sports sessions to enhance their learning experience.
