Our Children will have access to a custom-made playground activity centre for climbing, creative and imaginative play which balances freedom with safety. The garden square is surrounded by trees which creates a delightful, natural environment.

We have three bright learning rooms specially designed with your child’s best interests at heart, each tailored to one of our particular age groups of babies, 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
Welcome to our Milky Way Room specially designated for our youngest members of the Bright Little Stars family aged 6 months onwards. We have created a tranquil area for them to settle and develop providing a safe and caring play area which is bright and spacious allowing them to move around in a clean and caring environment with stimulating resources to encourage their natural curiosity. We operate a strict no outdoor shoes policy in this room. We have incorporated a separate sleep area with a feeding chair for those all-important moments of comfort and cuddles. The sleep room is furnished with cots and dream coracles so all our babies can get the rest they need. The Milky Way Room also features its own Milk Kitchen which allows the staff to make the babies milk without leaving the room. We aim to ensure your baby’s care routines are mirrored, by their Key Person, to those you have established at home including feeding, nappy changes and sleep routines. 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 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, loved and secure at Nursery where a home from home environment is incorporated. Practitioners within this room understand sensitive caregiving, 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 is tailored around the babies and pre-toddlers individual needs and abilities to help support their growth and development, recognising the need for our pre-toddlers to become more independent. All children are offered opportunities to participate in a variety of activities such as music and singing, creative and craft play such as painting, sticking and cooking. We also provide opportunities for exploring the outdoors with free-flow access to the outdoor play area and regular walks around the Garden Square.
Providing high-quality planned experiences for children’s play is an important way to support children’s learning that is both enjoyable and challenging. When children play, they are learning at the highest level and the emphasis is on learning through play. 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, children 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, such as via a bespoke ‘Baby Sensory’ session twice per week in the Milky Way Room, enabling your baby to experience a wide range of new emotions. We work very closely with you as parents to help and encourage all these new skills which the babies are learning.
Orion: Under 2-3¼ years old
The Orion Room welcomes our newly transitioned children from the Milky Way room. Here your child will be assigned a new Key Person who will support them through the transition period and continue their learning journey with them. This room is dedicated to promoting independence with accessible toilets and coat pegs and will allow the children to grow in preparation for the Supernova pre-school room.
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 are encouraged and supported to dress themselves, wash their hands before meals, learn to self-serve their meals and eat using a knife and fork at mealtimes. When your child is ready, their Key Person will support them with the transition from nappies to toileting. Your child’s Key Person will continue to assess their development by using the 7 Areas of Learning taken from the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). Each child will have a formal ‘Two-Year-Old Development Check’ to monitor and promote development at the expected developmental rate and to ensure the child’s is meeting their full potential.
The bright and spacious Orion Room is split into two halves. In one half is the home corner and cosy group area, where there is an abundance of natural light. In this area children are encouraged to spend time independently looking at a wide range of media and reading to build vocabulary and 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. In the book corner the LCD computer screens are used to reinforce learning around phonic letters and sounds as well as the world around them and technology. The other area is open and spacious allowing children the space and freedom to construct, build and enjoy creative play. Our Orion Room also offers unique access to a free-flow outdoor area. This area has been creatively designed to allow children to explore and discover building on their physical 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.
Staff actively lead group activities to further develop comprehension and language. 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.
In Orion we introduce and encourage the ‘Golden Rules’ including good listening and good sharing. Key Persons 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 strong parent partnerships, inviting parents in to join in with your child’s learning and development.
Supernova Room: Over 3+ years
The Supernova Room welcomes our pre-school children who transition into this room when they are ready in their age and stage of development. This room has accessible toilets, coat pegs and personal trays. Our aim within the Supernova Room is to ensure that your child is ready and eager to start mainstream school. 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 and support you in the steps needed to help you with your child’s transition. The Supernova room has been specifically designed to ensure that children can access a structured programme of play and learning to prepare them for their move to ‘Big School.’ This room also has unique access to the specially designed outdoor play area.
All areas of the EYFS are reflected both indoors and outdoors. These areas include Communication & Language, Physical Development, Personal Social & Emotional Development, Mathematics, Literacy (including phonics, ‘reading’ and mark making/writing), Understanding the World and Expressive Arts & Design including painting, sand and water play and Construction.
Supernova encompasses “School Hours” within the nursery day. This room benefits from a qualified teacher who supports and leads her team in delivering large group ‘teaching’ sessions, adult-led small group activities and child-initiated learning. We encourage children to make their own choices and use their own initiative; this allows them to channel their creativity. We have a wide range of materials which can be accessed freely, presenting children with the artistic licence to design, create and build their own artefacts. This gives children pride and ownership in their work.
The children are taught how to keep themselves safe by completing risk assessments and learning to solve simple problems; in small, supervised groups children are encouraged to partake in Healthy Risk Taking and Challenging Play. We continue to support and encourage good table manners, children confidently self-serve their meals and snacks, as well as using a knife and fork at mealtimes. Mealtimes are promoted to be a social time where children are encouraged to talk about their cultures and home experiences. Children are confident to dress themselves and attend to their toileting needs in preparation for school.
To assist children in their personal, social and emotional development BLS offers a unique ‘Young Mindfulness’ Programme, which helps children to be self-aware and provides coping strategies in difficult situations.
With all the above in mind and in order to access the learning provided in our pre school room we have room entry requirements which will be discussed with you prior to your child’s admission into Supernova.

All 3 and 4 year olds become eligible for the Funded Early Education entitlement the term after their third birthday and are entitled to 570 hours of childcare which is 15 hours per week for 38 weeks out of the 52 week year.

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.

We accept Childcare Vouchers from employers who offer this benefit to their eligible employees as an e-voucher. Vouchers are non-taxable and exempt from NI contributions for employees, whilst offering NI savings for employers. Both parents are eligible to claim as long as they are both in employment.
We are eagerly anticipating our first inspection by Ofsted at our newly opened Stratford Nursery.

My 1 year old was born in lockdown and didn’t have much experience with other people, but the nursery have been excellent in making her feel comfortable and happy. She is like a different child now.

Really looking forward to my little boy joining BLS Watford!read moreLisa Ola2019-05-09T21:11:31+0000My son started BLS when he was 2 years old. 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. My son attended the Watford nursery from age 3 until he started school and over the space of a year I saw him transform into a confident, happy child who was prepared to start reception. He had been to another nursery previously and the difference that BLS offered in terms of the quality of care, the slick administration and their passion for development puts them in a league of their own. My son truly loved going to this nursery.read moreLouisa Crawley2019-05-09T17:01:33+0000My son attended BLS Watford for 18 months prior to starting school last September and I have nothing but positive praise for the company.

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 ! They also provide CCTV access which puts my mind to great rest when I can peek and have a quick view a few times a day!

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.

I’ve always been comforted by the fact that Ethan has been in such capable hands. We will definitely stay in touch. All the best for the future!read moreVasili Olawunmi Fasanmi2017-08-17T11:48:54+0000Sijin Jacob2017-07-21T13:03:52+0000Today-my boy’s last day at BLS Watford-I cannot express in words how thankful we are.Such a fantastic team-made a great progress in our child’s development.We will miss you all-each and every member of Supernova and the management team and thank you very much for a wonderful year.Wish you all the best.read moreRiztya Faretha2017-07-11T15:05:12+0000My daughter joined the BLS in Harrow when she was 19 months old. The nursery was brand new at that time but my husband and I were really amazed at how professional the staffs are. My daughter settled in very quickly, hardly shed a tear when we dropped her off. 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. The BLS Harrow have loads of toys and a big space for kids to play around, both indoor and outdoor area. The web link for parent’s area are very useful to view children activities, upcoming events, and nursery cam. We can’t recommend BLS Harrow highly enough.read moreChirag Malhotra2017-07-01T14:32:55+0000Bright little stars cares a lot for kids wellbeing and is full of fun and activities…has well trained and friendly staff…colorful and nice setup for the young ones to learn and grow…We have moved in from abroad and in no time my little one is so comfortable with the conducive and caring atmosphere and is enjoying every bit of the time spent in BLS…and am sure she is on her way to be definitely a bright little star** as all the credit goes to the nursery “bright little stars” for all the grooming and learning’s she is getting.read moreSonu Wadhu2017-06-26T20:07:39+0000The staff is nice and very friendly.

The staff is very welcoming and thoughtful they organize things to be easy for both parents and kids (such as nappies and wipes being brought in packs in advance, list of children’s clothes etc.) My daughter is more than happy there, I loved the brand new building, everything is nice and clean (not like everywhere), children always have cuddles and hugs, the members of staff carry little ones for a comfort and they are never lazy or tired. I also like the spacious buggy park and that they offer a variety of home-made food to children on an everyday basis. I couldn’t recommend it enough, every session is something we are looking forward to thanks to caring members of staff and the overall atmosphere.read moreBob Ik2017-06-15T23:26:12+0000Cannot thank enough Hemma, Alija, Khansa, Yolanda and all the staff members who look after my daughter so well that she has a smile on her little face every single day.

We then decided to move him to Bright Little Stars in Mill Hill from around 16 months and he settled in straight away, hardly shed a tear and instantly built bonds with several members of staff. We are very happy with the care and attention paid to our son by the staff. We love the way that all special occasions are celebrated and the children are encouraged to create their own Mother’s Day cards and even cook their own Pizza’s, to name a few activities they have been involved in. The daily automated e-mail is a clear summary of the key highlights of the day for my son my wife makes frequent use of the access to CCTV and is happy with what she observes. Facilities are excellent and my son is happy. We will soon be ending our second son to BLS as well, as we love the place. Highly recommended to all!read moreNeera Parekh2017-04-05T00:37:17+0000Bright Little Stars Watford are fantastic! They are professional, polite and very helpful.

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.

The first day was very hard to leave him and they surprised me with a lovely bag of goodies especially designed for the tearful mother! It’s the little things and the attention to detail that gives me the confidence in their ability to care for my boy. At the moment he only attends two days and I couldn’t have asked for better activities. He has Spanish one day and yoga the other! The very two activities I would have picked if I was asked before enrolling him. He leaves the nursery happy and contented, the environment is impeccable, bright, colourful and airy.

I’ve visited quite a few before I decided to register my “little” girl (3 years 5 months old) to Bright little stars nursery (Watford) and I’m glad I chose this one. 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 .Skit Morjaria Parmar2016-08-26T10:34:32+0000My son Shray started at Mill Hill when he was only 9mths old .

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.
