Starlings is a pre-school providing excellent Early Years Child Care and Education for children below school age and over the age of 2 years.  We have been running since 1994 and are based on the grounds of the Manor Field Infant and Junior School sites in Haydn Road, Basingstoke.  Most of our staff are mothers themselves and are all qualified to NVQ Level 3 or above.  We are extremely proud of our latest Ofsted "OUTSTANDING" rating and follow the EYFS framework for learning where your child will learn through play. 

During their time with us we aim to enhance the development of each child within a parent-involving, community oriented environment. We aim to provide a safe, secure, stimulating and above all fun setting to ensure that your child’s first experience of education is a positive one, resulting in a confident transition to mainstream school.

With two outside play areas giving all the children great opportunities to develop their skills they can play in the mud kitchens, with the water walls, sand pits or if they choose they can sit in the quiet area and share a book or just chat to their friends or even maybe sit at the table and develop their mark making skills.   Different daily activities are set up so the children can access all areas of the EYFS curriculum. 

Starlings pre-school are always pleased to welcome new members to join our committee and contribute to the running of the group.


Starlings pre-school offers your child the best start to enable them to fulfil their potential.  We are aware that each child is unique and we promote positive relationships in an enabling environment.
