Bright Stars Day Nursery will provide a secure, safe, challenging and inspiring environment for all our children. Our qualified, happy, caring and friendly team will do everything possible to maximise children’s progress. We enjoy strong working relationships with our families, creating a ‘family atmosphere’ that is welcoming, inclusive and reassuring for parents/carers as well as the children.
Bright Stars Day Nursery opened in 2008 as an Ofsted registered 52 place nursery catering for children aged 3 months to 5 years. The nursery is open for 51 weeks of the year, Monday to Friday between 8am and 6pm.
As a smaller nursery, we pride ourselves on promoting a family ethos. We work very closely with parents and the diverse community in the area within which we operate. Within our welcoming, converted bungalow, our professional, dedicated early years educators work tirelessly to provide children with an exceptional early years experience. Every child is valued as a unique individual and learning experiences are tailored to their specific interests and needs. Children benefit from learning in a safe, secure and stimulating environment where they are encouraged to explore and develop to their potential within the stimulating indoor and outdoor learning environments. All food is prepared freshly each day on site by our qualified nursery cook.
