We aim to help all of our children to achieve their full potential in a fun loving environment.
We recognise early years as a unique stage to be valued in its own right and its importance as the basis for all future development. We are proud to have a dedicated team in each of our rooms who will meet all the needs of each individual child.
Nathalie Roberts opened Star Tots in 2003 and has always been hands on, between working with both children and staff on a daily basis she always ensures that the highest quality of care is provided to all the children. We are a family run crèche and having only one crèche we can provide that home away from home feel for all age groups from 3 months to 12 years.
