Cambridge Stars International Nurseries

We developed  Cambridge Stars International nurseries with Stars Day Nurseries which is a chain of Early Years Education settings based in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, UK.  We committed to providing outstanding childcare and early education for children and their families with our business partner. We are extremely proud of our Nurseries and Pre-school settings and the supportive, stimulating learning environments they offer.

We work in close partnership with families and professionals and aim to build supportive relationships based on honest and open communication. Our ethos is to support, educate and nurture and this commitment is at the heart of all we do. It is an ethos which encompasses our belief that the child, and their individual learning journey, is best supported by highly trained and experienced Early Years Educators. We strongly believe that every child has the right to learn and develop to their full potential. Our staff teams are focused on delivering child care and educational programmes that support each and every child and fully meet their individual needs.

As a well-respected and experienced Early Years Provider, Stars Day Nurseries are extremely proud of the service we provide and in September 2018 celebrated our fifteenth birthday. We are committed to investing in and growing our dynamic staff team and settings. We have high aspirations and incredibly high standards and we believe that our Nurseries and Preschools exceptional achievements clearly demonstrate that our commitment to children and their families is outstanding.
