Little Stars Falkirk is an open plan setting, providing 73 early learning places for children aged 3 months to 5 years. We are proud to be working in partnership with Falkirk Council to accommodate government funded hours for pre-school.
The three main rooms in the setting are the Raindrops room (0-2 years), the Rainbow Room (2-3 years) and the Sunshine Room (3-5 years). Each room is an effective learning environment which caters to each child’s individual needs. Our highly motivated, qualified, nurturing staff provide a range of learning experiences collated from the children’s own individual interests. We aim to provide stimulating activities to promote confident individuals, effective learners, responsible citizens and effective contributors. At Little Stars we follow the Pre-Birth to Three Curriculum with our 0-3 years and the Curriculum for Excellence with our 3-5 years.
Situated in the Falkirk Stadium we have the Helix, the Kelpies and woodland areas all at our doorstep. We also have a secure outdoor garden equipped with natural play resources to allow children to play, learn and grow.
With an extensive car park to the front of the stadium and an exclusive parking area for parents using the nursery, this ensures easy drop off’s and pick up’s.
We provide a well-balanced, nutritional morning and afternoon snack which is low in fat, salt and sugar and follows the Setting the Table guidelines. This will vary depending on the season and to allow variety in the nursery diet. We encourage the children to participate in preparing snack as much as possible using fresh ingredients wherever we can. All dietary requirements will be catered for.
We understand that for parents who have a busy lifestyle, preparing daily packed lunches can be time consuming and an added pressure. Healthy Tots (www.healthy-tots.co.uk) are a well-established company who already prepare and deliver food daily to over 500 nurseries within the central belt and they follow all government guidelines in relation to nutrition, portion sizes etc. This service is available to all children at a daily cost of £1.50 should you wish to sign up, this ensures that your child/children are having a hot main meal and a dessert whilst they are at nursery.
