Rising Stars is a privately run setting based on the school premises. At our Daycare you will find a warm welcome and a fun, stimulating and safe environment for children. Below you will find more information on the services we offer…

Education & Learning
“Our Early Years vision and Ethos”
At Rising Stars we believe that play underpins the delivery of the EYFS curriculum. We pride ourselves on offering practical, hands on experiences through child initiated play and focused learning with adults in a purposeful, language rich environment. Children’s development is measured through an online tool; Tapestry, this gives parents the opportunity to contribute to their child’s development profile. Each child is assigned a Key Worker who will monitor individual child’s progress and plan focused activities from the children’s identified next steps.

Childcare
Rising Stars is open all year, closing only for Christmas/New Year and Bank Holidays. We offer private and funded childcare as well as wrap around care, after school club and holiday club. Opening times are 8am-6pm , for more information on session times and prices please email; enquries@wcpsedu.org or call in to the Daycare to pick up a parent pack, alternatively you can give us a call on 01226 289989 and speak to a member of the team.

Funded childcare
At Rising Stars we offer spaces for funded childcare, for example; TYE (2 year old free 15 hours funding), EEF (3 & 4 year old 15 hour funding) and free 30 hours funding. For TYE/EEF we offer five 5 x 3 hour sessions per week during term time. For 30 hours we try to be flexible in the sessions we offer, also working closely with school for parents who wish to split and use 15 hours in school education and the remaining 15 hours with us, as we are so close this transition between settings is very smooth and consistent, please contact us to speak about the session options for 30 hours childcare. Also please note, there are no extra charges for any snacks or meals provided during funded sessions.

Food & drink
All food provided at Rising Stars is prepared onsite by our trained cook, Clare. We use fresh produce and follow national guidelines to ensure children are eating nutritional and healthy meals and snacks. We are able to cater to accommodate allergies, intolerances and dietary requirements. For drinks we offer water or milk as standard. All meals, snacks and drinks are included in children’s sessions at no extra cost. Menus are available to view upon request.
