Stars Pre-School Dogsthorpe, previously known as Little Steps Pre-School, was rated “Good” by Ofsted in their recent inspection March 2013. "Children very much enjoy their time at the pre-school and are eager to learn. They make good progress because staff have good teaching skills, underpinned by a good awareness of the characteristics of effective learning. Children achieve because of the effective way staff use observations and assessments to plan for the next steps in their learning and development. Children are valued as individuals by staff who work closely with parents and other professionals to plan to meet their needs and to ensure any additional support is accessed. As a result, children with difficulties in the learning and development are well supported. The leadership and management of the provision is strong. The manager and the deputy act as very good role models to staff who are well motivated and keen to learn. This creates a very positive learning environment for the children, based upon strong and positive values."
“The staff team at Stars Pre-School Dogsthorpe are committed to providing an outstanding quality service for children and their families. I am proud of my team’s commitment to children’s learning and development in the setting and to their own professional development as Early Years practitioners. I hope to continue to grow and develop the Pre-school and look forward to the future with Stars Pre-School Dogsthorpe.” - Jayne (Pre-school Manager)
“I feel that, here at Stars Pre-School Dogsthorpe the staff are actively involved in children’s development, with the aim to allow each child the opportunity to grow and progress in each area set out in the EYFS, setting them in good stead for when they make the transition to school.

Overall, I am happy with how this Pre-school delivers childcare in a committed manner where the children are at the heart of our focus.” - Tara (Deputy Manager)
