Inspiring little ‘Sparkling Minds’

Provision for 0-3
The bright and stimulating 'Sunbeam Room' is for our littlest people. This room will soon be further enhanced with the fitting of underfloor heating. As the little ones grow and develop, they move on to the 'Rainbow Room' which is specifically for 2 to 3 year olds.
Us as your ‘extended family'
At 'Sparkling Minds' we understand how the smallest things can make a big difference to busy families. Every family and child is unique; by working together, we can ensure all children feel safe, secure and happy.
Provision for 3 to 4 year
The 'Starlight Room' is the indoor base for our pre-school children. Children engage with their key-person and peers, with personal interests used to extend individual learning and skills.
Celebrating our similarities and differences
Understanding ‘British Values’ while learning about different family units, cultures and beliefs; promoting equality and diversity.
School readiness and wellbeing
Our setting benefits from highly qualified staff including an experienced Early Years Teacher. As a team we will support you and your child to be practically and emotionally ready for their transition to ‘big school’.
Outdoor space
We have three large, age appropriate outdoor spaces which encourage physical development and learning across the whole of the Early Years curriculum. Our additional Wildlife area helps us to use nature as a rich resource for learning.
