Where Playing is Learning !
We base all of our planning on the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS) which feeds into the KS1 National Curriculum.
There are 7 main areas of learning included within the EYFS:
1. Personal, social and emotional development
2. Communication and language
5. Understanding of the world
6. Expressive arts
7. Physical development
All of the children will experience activities that cover each of the above areas. Our staff plan according to the developmental stage and age of the children in their key groups. Often, a group will focus on a particular theme for a week or maybe longer. Parents are informed weekly via our website as to the specific aspects of the curriculum that are being covered in order to support home.

Ruislip Stars Nurseries is an independent, private nursery school. We subscribe to the Early Years Grant Scheme which entitles all children to a contribution of approximately a third of the nursery fees from the government. This applies from the term following the child’s 3rd birthday. Some parents may also be able to access the Two year old Grant funding- please ask staff for further details.
We also operate several childcare voucher schemes should parents wish to us apply on their behalf. However, we ask that you register with any scheme in advance so that you have accrued money in your childcare voucher account as we do ask for full payment of fees at the beginning of each month. Please don’t hesitate to contact us for more details if necessary.
Parents are invoiced for each month’s fees at the beginning of each month. A deposit of a month’s fees is required when your child begins which is refunded after your child’s last month. We are registered with HMRC if parents to wish to make payments through the HMRC portal.
Contact our office for bank details.
We offer the 15 hours and 30 hours Early Education Entitlement fund (EEE) for 2, 3 & 4 year olds which covers 38 weeks in the year.
Flexible hours may be considered for children who are accessing the minimum hours for the EEE funding.
If you decide that you would like your child to attend Ruislip Stars Nurseries Ltd, you will need to complete our application form for the waiting list. There is no charge at this stage of the application process.
Once your application for a place has been confirmed, a registration form and a fee will be required.
Please ensure that all sections of the form are completed and are accurate. Forms need to be returned immediately in order to secure your child’s place at the nursery. Please note that we are oversubscribed and it is essential that we receive confirmation of your acceptance of your child’s place as soon as possible.
