Kings Norton

Shooting Stars Nurseries has recently purchased the historical building Barbara Hart House in Kings Norton and successfully obtained planning permission to create a fabulous 93 place children’s day nursery.
The property and grounds are currently undergoing significant refurbishment in addition to building a small modern side extension to complement the existing architectural features of the existing building. Once refurbished, the facilities will include a fully equipped nursery, an in/out drive with 25 car parking spaces, bike storage, staff breakout space, a fully fitted commercial kitchen and an extensive enclosed garden. We anticipate the nursery will be ready to open in late 2018.

Each room has been purposely designed for a particular age group and will be well-equipped to a high standard with stimulating, educational resources, toys and games and a range of small and large equipment to encourage relevant physical development. The nursery area is planned to emulate the home environment and as the children progress through the nursery the balance moves gently, but increasingly, towards that of a classroom situation in preparation for school.

May 2018 Refurbishment Update

Work has started at our new Kings Norton site in Birmingham. The first task was to make the site secure with installation of surveillance and security fencing across the frontage with gated access for vehicles. The site office, canteen, storage container and welfare unit have now been delivered to site and set up ready for use during the building project.

The builders have started on the ground floor by ripping out the existing rooms, taking flooring up, removing electrics, taking plaster off the walls and removing any stud walls. Externally, work has taken place to set out where the footings will be dug for the new extension. We are so excited to get started and see things start to take shape (with a little imagination!)

June 2018 update

Hard hats at the ready, there is some heavy work happening on site at Kings Norton! Steel supports have been fitted into place and walls removed to create larger areas that will be transformed into spacious and light nursery rooms. The impressive steel frame for the extension is also being installed. Cross braces will follow to secure the structure.

July 2018 update

The contractors are hard at work making good progress despite the heat. The original external wall has been knocked through to create what will be a beautiful, light glazed extension. Some plaster boarding and plastering work has also begun upstairs in the existing building which is starting to take shape. The new front entrance has been created.

August 2018 update

Come rain or shine, our team of contractors have been hard at work on site and the nursery is really taking shape!

Outside, the roof of the new extension is being fitted, and the solar panels are in place on the roof of the existing building. All windows in the existing building have been replaced with brand new ones which really improves the security, energy performance and exterior image of the building. The rear garden has been cleared and flattened.

Inside, plastering has been completed upstairs and some rooms are ready for the flooring to be laid. A key feature on the inside is the beautiful central staircase and stained glass window which the team are incorporating into the hallway design.

Opening date – Wednesday 2nd January 2019

Our opening date for Shooting Stars Kings Norton has been moved to the start of 2019. This gives the builders the time they need to complete the project before our staff team set about cleaning and setting up the nursery with all the brand new furniture, equipment, soft furnishings, toys and resources. It’ll be like Christmas coming all over again!

September 2018 update

We are excited to announce that our first Open Day at Shooting Stars Kings Norton will take place on Saturday 17th November between 10am - 1pm.

Come along to our open morning on Saturday 17th November and be among the first look around Shooting Stars Kings Norton. There will be 2 'Show Rooms' available to view and team members available to answer any questions you may have. There is no need to make an appointment - just turn up!

As the nursery will not yet be complete, please bring your imagination with you on the day!
We plan to hold another Open Day in the new year, if you would like to visit again at a later date to see the nursery 'in action'.

Bookings taken on or before the Open Day will receive up to a FREE WEEK of childcare (based on a week of your regular booking patten). T&C's apply - please contact for more information or to book.

The extension is all ready for the glazing to be installed and is looking fabulous. Inside the nursery, the top floor is being painted, with flooring down in some of the rooms and toilet facilities being installed. On the ground floor, plastering work is well underway.
