About the employer

The Nursery Group initially started as Little Stars Day Nursery Limited in 2003. I opened the nursery as I could not find a nursery where I would be happy to leave my eldest son. As a working parent myself with three young children, I had a nanny and although the care was excellent for my children, I wanted to have the same kind of care, but in addition, in an environment where it allowed my son to integrate with his peers in smaller groups.
