About the employer

ALL STARS PRE-SCHOOL stands for educational specialists, wholehearted commitment and comprehensive child care. Increasing demands are being made on child care facilities, since all parents want the very best for their children, right from their very first learning experiences. In addition, there is now a marked trend towards intellectual education for children, but still children also need to play, move, get enough exercise and discover their own bodies. Our nursery school achieves both objectives by offering space for moving around, plenty of opportunity for play, a book area, a wide range of resources to cover the seven areas of learning and various facilities for creative activity. Our aim is to support each child through his or her own development.
