Alpha Nurseries re-opened the Shining Stars in December 2018. Shining Stars is conveniently situated next to Leiston Children Centre.
Our nurturing 'home from home' environment is carefully designed to encourage children to learn independently in a safe, secure environment that promotes equality and values diversity. We have an experienced and skilled staff team. Healthy home cooked meals are provided using fresh ingredients to promote a healthy balanced diet.
We provide a range of fun activities, resources, and experiences to meet children's individual needs and interests. Children have the opportunity to explore our outdoor area all year round and take part in physical activity, being adventurous in safety.
We offer Free Early Education for eligible 2 year olds and all 3 and 4 year olds.
All children who are 3 years old are entitled to free early education the term after they are 3 years old. They are entitled to 15 funded hours a week for 38 weeks of the year.
This can be taken during school term times only or stretched out over the whole year. Free early education for 2 year olds is offered to families meeting certain criteria, please ask for details or see ‘Are you eligible with funding?’ at the top of this page.
There is no registration charge if your child only attends for their free entitlement.
