ETHOS

Stars Ravensthorpe encourages children to use our stimulating indoor and outdoor learning environments to become confident learners, whilst feeling valued and nurtured. We strive to encourage children to have fun and to gain a strong bond with their key carer. Most of all we want children and families to come to Stars Ravensthorpe because they feel welcome, secure and relaxed.
