Little Stars Nursery hold all our up to-date policies here on our website, please download from the below list :

Positive Behaviour Policy

At Little Stars we believe that children flourish best when they know how they and others are expected to behave. Children gain respect through interaction with caring adults who act as good role models, show them respect and value their individual personalities. The nursery actively promotes British values and encourages and praises positive, caring and polite behaviour at all times and provides an environment where children learn to respect themselves, other people and their surroundings.  Read full policy here >>
