  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the Day Nursery / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Day Nursery receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5.

    The Average Rating of 4.892 for Shooting Stars Nurseries at Hinckley is calculated as follows: ( (108 Excellents x 5) + (11 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 120 Ratings = 4.892

    1. 4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Day Nursery with 50 registered maximum number of service users has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

Overall this nursery provides a great learning environment for kids with its staff, resources and attitude. The food provided is excellent and communication is good between staff and parents.
I would however, have preferred more one to one meetings (progress reviews) through the time there (one was provided). In addition, I would have preferred a stronger emphasis on individualised learning and development. (However, I understand the pressures and time issues that educational staff face!)

My daughter moved to Shooting Stars from a different nursery and it was definitely a move for the better! The increase in the standard of care and facilities was amazing. This is moving from a good to a good as per ofsted. The food is restaurant standard. All the staff are friendly and happy to help no matter how busy they are. I am so pleased I made the decision to move her to Shooting Stars and I have recommended it to all my friends.

My son started in the baby room just over 2 months ago and my daughter has been here nearly 3 1/2 years. I can't recommend the nursery enough. My son has settled really well and the staff have been really helpful reflecting the care and routine he has at home. My daughter has come on leaps and bounds over this past year, she loves it in the pre-school room and looks forward to going. Think she'll be sad to leave in August ready to start school.

My daughter has been going to Shooting Starts since mid April. I was apprehensive about leaving her at first, due to returning to work full time. I was put at ease straight away due to the friendly staff and seeing how well my daughter was taken care of and she seemed to settle in very quickly.
The staff always talk me through what kind of day she has had. I like the fact that whenever the weather is nice the children get taken into the garden for outside play. There is always something fun for the little ones to get involved in, my little girl has already got involved with painting, playing in the sand pit, dance class etc. and she is only 9 months old.
I would highly recommend Shooting Stars to friends and family.

My little girl was very unsure when she started nursery at 8.5months but she was quick to settle at Shooting Stars due to the patient, caring staff. The staff are so welcoming and friendly and the environment is lovely. My little girl has made lots of progress and loves going to nursery. The nurserycam is great for letting you check in on your child during the day. They host regular stay and play sessions and other events and put lots of effort into helping the children explore and develop.

We are so pleased that we found this nursery. The staff at Shooting Stars are caring, professional and friendly. They provide wonderful learning opportunities in a creative and safe environment that engage and enhance our son's interests. They've been patient and sensitive throughout his settling in process and our son has now even started to ask to go on days he should be at home! Our son also loves the home cooked meals that they provide and they cater superbly for his allergies and dietary requirements. We highly recommend.

Michelle Warren, Manager at Shooting Stars Nurseries at Hinckley responded to this review on 22 Sep 2015:

Thank you.

I would not have my son go to any other nursery!
Every aspect of Shooting Stars is outstanding and I feel 100% at ease with leaving him in their care.
The personal touches that each of their staff bring is fantastic, my son is welcomed and recognised every day by all members of staff that we see. The love, care and attention that they show all of the children is amazing to see...you can tell that the staff are not just "doing their job" and "counting down the hours", they all really engage with the children and they almost feel like an extended family to us.
From the food, to the communication, to the building/d├ęcor, to the cleanliness, to their installed standards, to their passion for helping your child through their early years journey...you cannot beat Shooting Stars Hinckley.
I promise anyone reading this review, that you do not need to look at any other nursery (I looked around every one in the area), this really is the only choice if you want to be assured of exceptional care and support for you, as a parent, and your child.

My daughter has been attending the nursery for two years now and I cannot recommend it enough. Before placing her at a nursery provision, I spent a lot of time visiting a lot of different settings before choosing Shooting Stars and it just ticked all my boxes from the start; I have never regretted that decision and my daughter just loves it there...she skips into the nursery every single day and talks positively about the staff and what she does there.
The building is just wonderful, really lovely and clean, but also well thought out - it's designed with children in mind and is very accessible. My daughter has been in the baby room, pre-toddlers and toddlers, which are all beautiful rooms: well set out, well resourced, and perfectly designed for the developmental stages of the children using them. There are great additional resources at the nursery (a sensory room and soft play room), and the parent-cam facility was really reassuring to use when my daughter first started. I don't use it so much now - partly because she can communicate so well and I know how much she loves it there - but I know it's there if I want to access it.
The nursery has great outdoor spaces and the staff seem committed to developing the areas further. They often ask for parental input, which I like - it's good to feel involved and included. And I like the fact that the children go outside rain or shine - I think that's a really important thing.
Communication is excellent and I feel very informed about what's happening at the nursery, what my daughter is doing, what is coming up, and what we can get involved with.There are also lovely activities that run in each room on certain days (football classes, dancing, etc). Add Christmas parties, trips, visits (say from the fire brigade), stay and plays, resource bags, hairdresser visits and all the other services on offer to the mix and you find a wonderful overall provision (for my daughter and for me as a parent).
I feel the nursery is a great learning environment and I have regular meetings with my daughter's key workers; I feel really informed about her development. The staff prepare engaging and stimulating activities (that I would never do with my daughter at home) and I really feel that her day is mapped out and that she's having access to age-appropriate activities that are designed to challenge and stimulate her.
I have to work, but knowing that she is cared for so well, is having fun, and spends her time away from me with staff who care about her has been an absolute blessing for me. The management team are great and really approachable too. It isn't the cheapest setting, but I believe you get what you pay for and I am prepared to pay for the best possible environment for my daughter.
Each parent has to make their own decision and do what's best for their own child - choosing a nursery is so important and it has to feel right. But I cannot recommend Shooting Stars enough - it is certainly right for my little girl.
