Welcome to Starshine Nursery

Starshine is an Ofsted-registered day nursery. Based in a spacious hall in Crouch End, our ‘Good’ awarded nursery can hold up to 28 children aged 2 to 5 years.

We pride ourselves on providing a quality experience, and a home-from-home feel for the children and their families. Our staff are warm, friendly and caring. They are highly trained and have an understanding of a number of development methods including Montessori, Rudolf Steiner, Reggio Emilia and McMillan. Each specialist curriculum is included within the setting, adapted in a way that fits in with the nursery’s ethos. Staff offer a safe and secure environment for your little one to have fun and thrive in.
The children’s happiness and wellbeing is our greatest priority. We recognise each child’s uniqueness, and always do our best to meet their needs. For this reason we have a higher-than-required staff-to-child ratio within the nursery, allowing for more individualised care and attention.

We aim to provide a service that promotes equality and values diversity. All families are welcome within the nursery. Parents are actively encouraged to discuss their child’s progress with the nursery team, as well as participate in special activities.
We look forward to welcoming the children to Starshine, and hope that their time with us will be happy and fulfilling.

Kate & Sandiep

Both our children have had a year at Little Stars and three years at Starshine. They always enjoyed it, and we were happy to be sending them. The staff have always been caring, friendly, and enthusiastic. It's a nice space, with good toys and equipment. Plenty of effort goes into activities and giving the children a stimulating and educational day. There's always a warm feeling and a friendly atmosphere at pickup time. The management team are thorough and clearly highly responsible. The staff kept us informed of what our children had been doing and how the day had gone. Thank you to everyone! We'll miss you!



Thanks so much for helping M settle into nursery over the last 10 months. It has been great to watch her develop + grow into herself! I know she will miss you all very much, as will T!


Ceri & Jake

To the best in the business (yes, that's you!) We want to say thank you for your amazing work! Thank you for teaching C new amazing skills every day and helping him improve his speech. He has become a confident, curious & joyful little boy in your care. Thank you for your patience during his (very loud!) tantrums, and for helping him learn how to deal with his emotions & frustrations. Thank you for icing every little bump & dressing every wound. He's earned his "Mr. Bump" nickname, which will follow him to Canada, no doubt. But most of all, thank you for making him laugh & making him feel loved & secured. I know he will miss you all very much, and so will we! All the best, Andree-Anne & Arthur
