Giving your little stars a bright future
As a family run nursery our biggest passion and commitment is to ensure children thrive and learn in a fun, caring and homely environment.
*OUR VALUES ARE RELEVANT AND TO DATE - Bright Stars is working alongside the view of 'Children's Rights' We want our nursery to allow children to feel free and happy in their learning environment. The rooms are all created around a homely feel and allow children to explore and discover on their own accord. The more of nature and the outdoors we can bring into the nursery the better!

*WE ARE LEADING THE PATH IN NEW INNOVATIVE IDEAS - We are currently using the 'in the moment' planning model which is a fairly new concept. It allows children to play and learn as they go, nursery practitioners use the play opportunity to aid in learning.
As a nursery we are working towards 'loose part' play and the curiosity approach. This encourages children to take the lead in their learning and naturally engage in an educational process that the children have chosen and wish to take part in.
We also want to encourage sensory play throughout the day, sand and water are available all day to allow children to choose when and how they want to play. Sensory play encourages children to be messy and creative, practitioners will utilise these play opportunities to ensure the children also learn as they go.
* WE ARE A LOCAL, FAMILY RUN NURSERY- We are a family business, with 1 building and no plans to become a chain, our main priority is to ensure the nursery we have meets the highest of childcare standards, and our aim is to achieve outstanding awards in the future. We are unique in the fact that the owner is also the manager.
* WE HAVE THE PERSONAL TOUCH - SAFETY - Security at the nursery is high, in order for you to have access to the nursery you need to ring the buzzer to which a member of managerial staff will greet you, this ensures a friendly welcoming environment. This also assists staff and parents to gain good relations with each other. Any person not recognisable will be asked for a password set up by the parents/carers to ensure high security is maintained at all times.
* CHARITY WORK - It is our mission to ensure we complete lots of charity work and that the children of the nursery join in with this too, we annually sign up for a muddy walk to raise money for the 'Save the children' foundation. We also annually climb Snowdon with our staff raising lots of money for Children in Need.
* WE UNDERSTAND THE IMPORTANCE OF FAMILY AND CARING FOR LITTLE ONES- All family members have a role within the nursery, Jo is the owner and a qualified childcare practitioner (with over 12 years experience in the industry), Claire is the administrator and is a fully qualified teacher, Sheila is the admin and has worked in a primary school setting whilst Eric is the maintenance manager. We want staff to feel part of the family and very much appreciated, this results in consistency and familiarity with the children. All children will have a key person, minimal changes of staff will be made, a reliable routine for the children is highly important.
