Shining Stars Nursery

Shining Stars Nursery

Since opening in 2014 Shining Stars Nursery quickly established a reputation for outstanding child care in Appleby. So much so that the nursery is always fully subscribed with children from around the area.

The staff at Shining Stars strive to achieve excellence in everything they do. Everyone at the nursery has a commitment to continuous improvement.

Shining Stars provides its staff with the opportunity to learn on the job skills in an exceptional childcare setting. They have benefited from the Invest in Eden Apprenticeship Grant scheme to support their staff in achieving formal childcare qualifications. The scheme provides grants of up to £2000 to support employers providing apprenticeship opportunities in Eden.

Jodie Rothery, Apprentice Nursery Assistant at Shining Stars Nursery said:
“I wanted to join Shining Stars Nursery as I knew it was a great place to get some hands on experience while studying for my childcare qualification. During my time here I have gained a good knowledge and understanding of childcare and first aid. I feel valued as a member of the team.”

As a result of the commitment demonstrated by Jodie, she has been offered a full contract on completion of her Apprenticeship.

The Invest in Eden Apprenticeship Grant is managed by Appleby Heritage Centre. For information click here or visit www.applebyheritagecentre.co.uk

We are proud to be an Ambassador for Eden because as a local family having the ability to contribute to change we regard it a privilege to have the responsibility for part of its development and enhancement. Steve Atkinson, Owner of Atkinson Builders
