Bright Little Stars Nursery in Harrow opened in February 2017. It is situated on Sheepcote Road close to Harrow Town Centre with easy access to public transport including nearby Harrow-On-The-Hill Station, Northwick Park Hospital, the University of Westminster and Harrow School.

Each room has direct access to outdoor space allowing the free flow of learning and playing both indoors and out.
Large gardens and sheltered areas give each room direct access to the outdoors encouraging children to explore their physical potential promoting the free flow of learning and exploration. The Pre-School classroom offers additional learning opportunities with low level windows, allowing children to view the day-to-day activities in the heart of Harrow.

We have specially designed four bright learning rooms with your child’s best interests at heart, each tailored to one of our particular age groups of babies, pre-toddlers, toddlers and pre-school complete with carefully selected sophisticated resources, facilities and modern technology suited to encourage children’s exploration for plentiful learning opportunities. Each room has direct access to outdoor space allowing the free flow of learning and playing both indoors and out.
Milky Way Room: Under 2 years old – Room One
A warm welcome to the Milky Way Room where we accommodate our babies and pre-toddlers from 6 months onwards. We have created a safe, caring and stimulating play area which is bright and spacious to welcome all our little ones as they move around safely in a clean and caring environment. We operate a strict no outdoor shoes policy in this room. We have also incorporated a separate sleep area so all our babies can get the rest they need in a peaceful and calming atmosphere. The Milky Way Room also features its own milk kitchen and a multi-sensory room to encourage children to use their senses and explore. Due to the age group in this room, your baby’s care routine can either be mirrored by their Key Person to synchronize what you give your baby at home including feeding, nappy changes and sleep routines, or, alternatively their Key Person can support and structure your baby’s routine to merge with the Nursery routine.
Our passionate and caring staff provide an array of activities to stimulate each and every child. Through the use of movement, sound, colour and touch the babies’ are encouraged to explore, develop, make independent choices and above all feel settled and comfortable in their Nursery environment where a home from home environment is incorporated. Practitioners within this room understand sensitive care-giving, which is needed to support babies’ early development and understand their emotional needs. This helps build attachments which is vital for babies’ in their early years to give them a sense of belonging.
The daily routine for our younger babies is tailored around their individual needs and abilities to help support their growth and development. All babies are offered opportunities to participate in a variety of activities, planned to create a balance between stimulating discovery play and adult led opportunities such as music and singing, creative and craft play such as painting, sticking and cooking. We focus on the three Prime Areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) including Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development and Communication and Language observing your little one’s milestones which forms part of their Learning Journey. Opportunities for exploring the outdoors are built into the daily routines with free-flow access to the outdoor play area and regular walks.
As the babies get older and begin to explore and gain confidence, they are given the opportunities to participate in a wide range of educational and fun activities that will be planned around play and learning. Free-flow outside play forms a large part of their day where a wide range of toys and play equipment are available helping develop their balance, co-ordination and physical strength. At this age, babies also begin to take in interest in books and nursery rhymes and we have a designated cosy corner to encourage this. Group activities are gradually introduced which help develop the babies’ concentration and language skills. For example, the staff offer a bespoke ‘Baby Sensory’ session enabling your baby to experience a wide range of new emotions. We work closely with you as parents to help encourage all of these new skills.
Galaxy Room: Under 2 years old – Room Two
As your baby begins the transition from a well-developed pre-toddler to becoming a confident 2 years old, we welcome them to the Galaxy Room where we accommodate these pre-toddlers in preparation for their transition to the Orion Room. The Galaxy Room is a cosy, safe and stimulating environment specifically created for children who are confidently walking. It is a recognised fact that children of this age develop fully intellectually, emotionally and physically when they are free to move and explore their environment safely. Our carefully planned environment is bright, offering high ceilings, rich in colour, print and physical experiences indoors and outdoors. As pre-toddlers explore and use all their senses to learn about the world around them, our learning room offers easily-accessible materials, including a role play area, creative and mark-making tools, puzzles and shape sorters, sand and water and free flow outdoor access.
Our practitioners help to strengthen the children’s concentration levels to prepare them for the Orion Room and for the later teaching style of learning. For example, the children are encouraged to participate in small circle times on the carpet area, having opportunities to socialize, form friendships with their peers and take turns in simple adult led activities. The cosy book corner is a comfortable spot for looking at picture books and reflecting, the children can look through photos from home and share their personal experiences with each other. Our visual timetable helps the children to learn routines and feel safe and secure by knowing what is happening next. As your child grows, their Key Person will support them to help prepare them for their transition into the larger toddler Orion Room. It is essential your child feels confident and happy before transitioning, therefore the pre-toddler Galaxy Room offers a fantastic opportunity to merge routines at certain times of the day with the toddler Orion Room, e.g. sleep routines and outdoor learning opportunities, thus providing your child with exposure to the older children as well in a larger and safe environment.
As well as focusing on the Prime Areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), we also start to introduce the children to technology, mathematics including shapes and counting in accordance with the Specific Areas. Children enjoy learning basic tasks, taking ownership and responsibility. We encourage the children to develop their independence by helping them to dress themselves, teaching them how to use a spoon and fork to eat and how to drink from a cup.
Orion Room: 2 – 3¼ years old
A warm welcome to the Orion Room where we accommodate our toddlers. The Orion Room is a spacious, bright and stimulating environment with high ceilings and access to a free-flow outdoor area, leading onto the large outdoor play area. This is a time of exploration and discovery for your child when we build on their developing physical skills and intellectual abilities. Primarily, the children have free choice as to what to explore, however, we encourage active times for exercise and play and quiet times for calmer, structured activities and speech development.
Language comprehension develops at an increasing rate at this age and we spend time looking at picture books and reading to children to build their vocabulary and a love of books. We also spend more time learning in groups, including pretend play, to better understand other people’s feelings and to continue to learn how to co-operate with others. The LCD computer screens are used to reinforce learning about phonic letters and sounds using the Ben & Betty Programme.
The children are encouraged to participate in ‘Show and Tell’ group activities, sharing their personal experiences with their peers. Additionally, during small circle times, the children start to learn the days of the week, months of the year and the weather. As well as participating in a wide range of extra-curricular activities, the children also take part in weekly Science and Botany activities, and learn about Geography and Culture, both forming part of the BLS Learning Programme. Children develop at different rates and each child’s progress is individual to them. The Key Person’s role is very important to encourage exploration and self-help. Children will be encouraged and supported to dress themselves, wash their hands before meals, learn to self-serve their meals and eat using a fork and knife at meal times. When your child is ready, their Key Person will support them with the transition from nappies to toileting. Their independence will grow in preparation for the pre-school Supernova Room. Your child’s Key Person will continue to assess their development through the 7 Areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and they will complete a ‘Two Year Old Development Check’ to ensure your child is reaching the expected developmental milestones and their own full potential.
Adults are important role models in children’s early development, therefore we encourage the ‘Golden Rules’ including good listening and good sharing. Practitioners also model polite language and respect, forming part of the fundamental British Values. Praise is always given for new achievements to build self-esteem and confidence. We encourage sibling time at Nursery, as well as strong parent partnerships, inviting parents in to join in with their child’s learning and development.
Supernova Room: Over 3+ years old
A warm welcome to the Supernova Room where we accommodate our pre-school children aged from approximately 3¼ years to 5 years old. Within the Supernova Room our aim is to ensure that your child is ready and eager to start school. The Supernova Pre-school Educators ensure the children can access a structured programme of learning, which is based on activities in preparation for the transition from Nursery to ‘big’ school. Following the 7 Areas of the EYFS and the unique BLS Learning Programme, we use a structured programme of rich and varied activities. All of the EYFS Areas are reflected in the learning rooms and outdoor areas, featuring Communication & Language, Physical Development, Personal Social & Emotional Development. Mathematics, Literacy (including phonics, ‘reading’ and mark making/writing), Understanding the World and Expressive Arts & Design.
We encompass a ‘School Day’ within the nursery day. This includes, whole group ‘teaching’ sessions, adult-led small group activities and child-initiated learning. We combine both adult-led and child-initiated activities to encourage independent learning and motivate children. We continue to encourage good table manners, children confidently self-serve their meals and snacks, as well as using a knife and fork at meal times. Children are confident to dress themselves and are familiar with toileting in preparation for school. The children enjoy helping the adults in everyday tasks such as preparing the routine and tidying away afterwards. They also have opportunities to take part in various extra-curricular activities.
At this stage the children are becoming more aware of their place in the community, our unique low level windows provide an additional learning opportunity to observe the environment in which they live. Children’s language is now much more complex therefore we encourage them to join in conversations, learn to use longer sentences and to begin to think about the past, present and future.
Literacy and numeracy can develop rapidly with the support of a wide range of resources e.g. Numicon. Jolly Phonics and Read Write Inc. are used to support letter recognition and formation. The children are encouraged to contribute to group times with ‘Show and Tell’ activities, as well as reflecting on their interests, sharing their family life, culture and beliefs.
Their increased interest in joint play, such as make-believe, construction and puzzles, helps to develop comprehension and planning, as well as reinforcing important social skills such as sharing and co-operation. Strong parent partnerships are vital for a smooth transition to school, therefore we meet with you regularly to update you on your child’s progress and development.
With all the above mind and in order to be able to access the learning provided in our pre-school room, we have room entry requirements.

All BLS Nurseries are registered and accept payments from Tax-Free Childcare accounts. Tax-Free Childcare is a more accessible alternative to the Employer Childcare Voucher scheme offering tax efficient savings when paying for your nursery fees. Tax-Free Childcare will be open to all qualifying parents, unlike childcare vouchers which can only be bought by people whose employer offers the scheme. It is a scheme by which the government will top up a designated childcare bank account by 20p for every 80p deposited, up to a maximum of £2,000 per child per year. It is the responsibility of the parent to ensure the Tax-Free Childcare payments are set up in line with the terms of the Bright Little Stars Contract.
Tax-Free Childcare can be used alongside the 15 and 30 hours funded entitlement to Early Years Education for 3 and 4 year olds and will support families with their childcare costs.

The nursery is a multicultural and inclusive nursery which is reflected in their staffing and children activities.My son is based in the Milky Way room. Sonia, his room leader has been doing a great job. She ensures that the children are exposed to different area of EYFS throught the activities that she planned for them. She also ensures that they are learning through plays and cultivates their strength.My son’s love of reading is nurtured by the existence of quiet corner and different books made available to him at the nursery. The nursery also has their own chef who makes things from scratch in the fully equipped kitchen on the premise. Another unique selling point of the nursery is the nurserycam that allows parents to check on their children remotely via indoor CCTV for max 15 minutes per day. This allows me to check on my son remotely when I miss him or just want to know how he’s doing during the day.Karma, the nursery manager has done great with policies and protocols, especially cleaning/health protocols during Covid19. Parents are being regularly updated via email/Parent Area.Overall, we are pretty happy that we selected BLS Stratford for our son.read moreMoshmi Chauhan2021-10-04T09:54:34+0000We moved our daughter here when she was 2.5 years old and it is by far the best decision we ever made. The nursery itself is very brigh, clean and welcoming, perfect to engage and welcome a child. The staff are always smiling, approachable and make every effort to keep parents up to date with their childs development. They host variety of themed days such as colour day, favorite book character day etc which always keep my daughter entertained and excited. In particular, we are very impressed with the different learning platforms available to us such as webinars and home learning activities to help us help our child at home in co-ordination with the nursery.

We visited 4 other Nursery’s locally – then signed up as soon as we’d finished the tour! Some key things that stood out was the diversity represented amongst the staff, and the toys and books available. Also impressive is how well the staff are looked after and the extra-curricular activities…for parents too! The garden is beautifully designed and the nutrition is clearly very important and a passion of the chef and Karma.Any anxieties we had about our lockdown baby going to Nursery were made so much better knowing he is in such excellent hands. Karma & her team are naturally kind and thoughtful – the insights they all share with us at pick up show they not only listen to us but take time to nurture relationships with the children.

As a nursery nurse myself i am often quite critical when i walk into nursery setting. I was blown away with my first show around, and the only question i had at the time was “How can you be sure that the level of childcare here will reflect the wow factor that nursery presents?” The member of staff at the time replied “Join us and you will see” She was right, and this honestly exceeded my expectations. I would say what makes BLS stand out, is there ability to provide consistent professional childcare throughout the entire nursery, every room and member of staff sing from the same sheet, and that isn’t easy at all to achieve. They also go above and beyond to enhance learning and keep all the family involved, such their grandparents day. They introduced something called ‘Get up shake up’ where the pre school children are encouraged to come in once a week in their pyjamas, and get dressed into their uniforms in preparation for school, as the children will need to get themselves dressed for things like P.E. The staff are absolutely incredible, from the welcoming greeting you get upon entering the building, right across to the kitchen staff. Almost a year after my son left for primary school his exact words when he came out of school one day, where ” Mummy i miss my teachers at nursery and the dinners!”read moreCarina Stenhouse2019-05-09T17:11:23+0000I would highly recommend BLS.

I have done a lot of research before deciding on BLS and I’m happy to say it’s definitely the right choice!

The key workers are more than glad to give me feedback at the end of each day and I can see the affection my son has for them. After the first few sessions, he has barely cried going in and is thoroughly enjoying it. Some activities like yoga, French classes, sensory play etc were unheard of by me !

From taking my daily calls to check in and for spending time at pick up to discuss his day in detail. He has settled in so well that somedays it’s hard to get him out the room, we have seen such a huge development in him he is happy and playful around other children and learning so many new things weekly.

She loves the food there, I always hear she eats everything. I noticed my daughter became really good at singing nursery rhymes and likes to dance or doing any small movements while singing (it is just so cute); she developed many words from the rhymes.

As my eldest grew we realised her old nursery was not meeting her needs and wasn’t up to the standard we were looking for. Although we knew it was right to move her to a new nursery, we were sceptical about unsettling her and ensured we looked into a number of other nurseries to guarantee her security and comfort in the transition. For me, Bright little stars stood out a mile from any other nursery we viewed and after having a tour we decided to start my other child there as well as moving my daughter. The staff were really friendly and so welcoming when we toured, communication was great with lots of relevant information being both sent to us by email as well being explained to us in person. The nursery is so clean, organised, modern and is full of both nurturing and stimulating toys and activities. I have potty trained my daughter and I take great comfort in the toilet area which is spacious with a number of toilets, as well as child seats and a number of small basins as the child walks out of the cubicle encouraging them to wash their hands. The garden area is likewise spacious with a number of activities as well as bigger attributes such as a climbing frame, the mud kitchen and a sand pit which my child loves. The nursery also has a number of classes such as dinky dancers, Spanish amigos and yummy yoga which both kids love, these are only a few examples of how they are helping my children to grow within themselves as well as with confidence whilst learning new skills. The approach to children here is great, with elements such as circle time encouraging talking, communicating and singing whilst still learning at the same time. I would really recommend this nursery to any parent looking for the very best place to send their babies, both my children love it here and my daughter was even counting the sleeps until she started after viewing! My worries with moving my daughter and starting my son were completely put at ease once i had joined here and i am so glad i decided to do so, on the first day the nursery even gave us a sweet little first day survival kit with a beautiful poem and little gifts for the tearful mums! A further example of how thoughtful and considerate they are towards not only the children but also the parents is that we get an electronic diary with our child’s day including any changes, what they ate, sleeps theyve had and what theyve played with as well as highlighting their development and how they are progressing. I would urge any friend or family member to look here when considering a nursery for their little ones :)read moreBecca Dean2016-09-14T09:24:11+0000This nursery is hands down the best nursery in the Watford area.

She liked it the first time she saw it and she didn’t want to leave. She has changed so much since she’s started attending it. She wasn’t talking a lot before but now when she’s coming home she’s like a chatterbox telling me how much fun she had. The reasons I chose this nursery are the following: the uniform (compulsory for pre-school children), fully qualified staff, the onsite chef cooking fresh meals (my daughter is a good eater), extra-curricular activities (spanish lessons, dinky dancers, sport…), nursery cam (I can login to see what is she doing at the nursery) and the nursery itself (bright learning rooms with latest technology).I am confident that she is going to be well prepared to start reception next year!read moreNarielly Viana2016-08-27T21:27:35+0000Irina Duta2016-08-27T01:07:39+0000Succes .Sital Skit Morjaria Parmar2016-08-26T10:34:32+0000My son Shray started at Mill Hill when he was only 9mths old .

I would highly recommend BLS☺️read moreImelda N Udeh2016-08-11T06:48:50+0000Melanie Postepski2016-06-28T15:41:19+0000Our little boy joined Watford in April 2016 from a different nursery that he’d outgrown, we just can’t believe the difference in him in such a short time, the environment is nurturing yet he’s really learnt so much in such a short amount of time, he didn’t speak much when he joined, but that’s all changed now. The extra curriculum activities are amazing and honestly we couldn’t be happier with Nicola and the team at BLS. Really fantastic nursery.read moreEmma Jane Goodchild2016-05-25T20:53:08+0000Our little boy has gone from strength to strength in his character at BLS. Love his independence, love his socialising skills, the team are great and the end of the day reports help me engage with him and ensure I don’t feel like I am missing out on his developmentread moreVictoria Treacy2016-05-25T14:19:56+0000Great nursery, which my little girl of 18mnths loves! They really go above and beyond with trips to the park, a dance and singing class on a monday and creating a tailor made program for each child to suit their own needs, likes and personalities.read moreNoureen Naushad2016-05-24T18:22:26+0000It’s a fabulous nursery. My 1 year and 3 year old boys attend the nursery and I couldn’t be happier with the standard of exceptional care given. Staff are extremely friendly and welcoming, and the standard of facilities is impeccable. My kids were happy and settled from the very first day and they simply love it. I can see both my kids learning a lot as the environment is very nurturing and stimulating. Outdoor play areas are simply wonderful. The nursery also makes an extra special effort to maintain parent partnerships through parents’ involvement sessions, breakfast clubs, and even the handover of kids at the day end is pretty detailed. Nursery webcam and online day end report with pics of my little one are wonderful features. My three year old comes home every day having learned new skills, tried new experiences and raves about his day. My baby boy is nurtured and cared for in a way that makes me very happy with my choice of nursery.read moreDede Thorpe2016-05-24T09:33:22+0000This is a fantastic nursery. It is very clean and well laid out. My 11-month old son has loved it since his first day. The staff there are all really friendly, helpful and they all know my son’s name which is a lovely personal touch. I can tell that the staff really care.Well worth the money. My son likes his key worker a lot and I can tell he learns a lot after every session.They keep me updated on my son’s days and send me lovely pictures of him having a good time. The staff to baby ratio is really good and I feel that my son gets all the attention he needs and the right support for his learning and development.read moreMeera Manek2015-12-24T10:34:14+0000Loved this place… Such a warm homely friendly environment!Neal Hutchings2015-12-04T23:20:45+0000Would like to thank everyone, especially orion room for making my first week fab and making me feel welcomed .

At the star I didn’t want her to go nursery as I’d miss her so much but BLS staff involve me in her nursery life. Bright Little Stars monitor the children’s progress and put them into classes where they can learn and excel. Overall it’s an amazing nursery as they care about the children because they hold many parent’s evenings.read moreRowena Varma2015-02-26T17:58:23+0000An absolutely brilliant nursery where we feel completely comfortable leaving our child as she will be well looked after. The staff are great and made my daughter’s transition to nursery smooth and stress free. She loves going there and we can relax as parents knowing that she is in good hands. There are always a variety of activities for her to participate in and parents are always kept updated and involved in their child’s development.

The nursery teachers in all the rooms she has been in are very good and they provide a lot of care and attention to my daughter. They are also keen to involve me as much as possible and if needed I can rely on them to help her achieve certain key milestones/developmental goals. I am very happy with the nursery and also the facilities, it is a purpose built nursery so an ideal place for my daughter to stay. There are also a wide range of activities and educational programmes to encourage her to learn and develop her confidence and skills (the Ben and Betty programme is fab!). Overall, I am very pleased with BLS :)read moreChris Giles2015-01-22T21:55:47+0000Fantastic place!
