Opening our doors again
We have been completing lots of new policies and putting new procedures in place to ensure our nursery is ready for your little ones to come back. Here are just a few additions we have made;
-All children have indoor and outdoor shoes
-Lots more hand gel machines throughout the building
-A fogging machine used daily to rid the building of any bacteria, viruses and/or fungi
-Limited people in the building
-Being outside as much as possible.
-Nursery rooms being deep cleaned and repainted
Bright Stars encourages a home from home environment where possible. We encourage all our staff to go barefoot or have comfy slippers on when in their rooms. We find children are often taking their shoes off through choice. This term we are introducing a shoe basket, if children wish to take their shoes off then they can safely store their shoes in the labelled basket.
We encourage this as there are loads of benefits to going barefoot at such a young age.
⭐️Muscles grow ...stronger, improving gross motor skills
⭐️Improves flexibility in children's legs
⭐️A wider range of hip movement
⭐️A greater sensory development
⭐️A better sense of balance.
An incredibly kind gesture by one of our little stars parents. We have ordered the equipment and are excitedly awaiting its arrival.
We celebrate our fantastic team each month by voting the hardest working member of the team, this is sometimes given from management choices but mostly staff will nominate each other.

Outdoors for summer
Outdoors is a great resources for Bright Stars, where we can our children spend the majority of their time outside either in our secured outdoor area or going on trips. Our outdoor garden has had some big renovations, we now have lots of lovely plants growing and some bug hotels. Children can access the garden throughout the day and are encouraged to investigate, be imaginative and learn through fun.
During lock down we have been busy trying to engage and keep in touch with all our little stars. We have completed baking challenges, creating fun videos for you to watch and posted lots of story times.
