Brightstars Daycare

Our mission is to be the friendliest local day-care where everyone feels welcome and included. We aim to provide families with high quality flexible care and education whilst embracing the early years Framework and the Foundation Phase.  We believe that a homely atmosphere is paramount and aim to provide a safe and caring environment where all children can feel happy and relaxed and develop to their full potential. The first few years of a child’s life are important informative years and at Brightstars day-care we focus on the needs of the whole child.  Our aim is to provide a warm and accepting atmosphere to ensure children feel confident in their surroundings. Individual room environments are created to support the age and stage of development of each child and enable active learning, play and exploration. We will constantly reflect on our environment and make changes if necessary to support the growing and varied needs of the children in our care.

Notes

All our children will share ground level access to a large, well-equipped outdoor play area.  Our outside area is very spacious and important to us. We aim to utilise it as much as possible. Outdoor Play is a fundamental part of early childhood development. Our outdoor area and garden are designed in such a way that children’s play can come to full expression in a safe environment. We believe it is an area where children’s play and learning can take off and flourish. It is an environment where children can make a mess, run and jump. It enables them to learn through firsthand experiences and to process their feelings, thoughts, and ideas.
