Angela McGarvey - December 2020
My son started at Bright Start when he was 6 months old and thrived. Staff were amazing, from dealing with his medical condition and food requirements to ensuring he was more than ready to stat school this year. If I was every lucky enough to have another child I wouldn't hesitate to put their names down. I have a good few learning journey record books which cover his activities, progress, days out and fun he had for the four years he was there.
Thank you to all the staff at Bright Start... you made every day fun and educational!
My daughter attends Bright Starts Nursery Harrow, and has done since she was 18 months old. We chose this nursery because of the friendly and warm staff and bright and colourful space. My daughter was initially a quiet and reserved child, but the team have help her to become a spirited happy little lady. My daughter comes home happy, full of exciting stories and lots of art and crafts. She is simply happy to go to nursery!
A lovely environment for any child to learn, play and thrive!
I have had 2 children attend Bright Start Nursery. My daughter who is now in school loved her time there making many friends and loved all the daily activities, so much so she asks to go back for holiday club. They also prepared her for what to expect in school.. My son who is currently in the baby room also loves his time in nursery and I find the daily diary very helpful. You can see all the staff genuinely care about the wellbeing of the children and I am very happy to have found the nursery.
Bright Start has been an amazing part of my son's life. He started at just 5 months old and I felt so confident leaving my tiny boy in the care of the staff there. They are so kind and genuinely caring with the children. The lines of communication are open between the nursery and parents and I always feel fully informed.
My daughter started at Bright Start when she was 9 months old and the staff have amazed me with their competence in both encouraging the sibling bond between my children and seeing them as their own little people. My little lady is so happy at nursery and has developed real bonds with the staff.
The nursery is incredibly well managed. The manager is always available and ready to listen. She is able to empathise with every parent and nothing is dismissed or ignored. There is evidently a strong staff team bond and everything runs like clockwork.
My children are of a mixed ethnic heritage and I love the inclusive nature at Bright Start. So many backgrounds represented and every culture individually acknowledged and celebrated.
I could not be happier with Bright Start as a childcare provider. There is such an emphasis on developing emotional and social wellbeing whilst preparation for school and academics is not ignored. My children are happy, confident and cared for.
When you are entrusting your children to another's care it isn't the OFSTED reports or the ratings that matter most (although of course Bright Start is outstanding in this way also) it is the feel you get when you walk in and I feel totally at ease and very blessed leaving my most precious little people at this nursery.
I have 2 children attending Bright Start (4 yrs and 20 months).
The nursery has a lovely environment, it is always very clean. The staff are super caring and very professional. I can really see they have formed great relationships with both my children. The structure and activities on a daily basis are great following the stages of the Early Years Foundation Stage and developing my children in all areas. They have great resources and toys and they love the food, eating more than one portion.
They absolutely love it there and it is exciting to see the things they learn and shows us at home. It's comforting to know that my children are happy, healthy, looked after and learning in such a fun way - it just feels like their second home. I am so pleased I found such a wonderful nursery

My daughter has attended Bright Start for the last 3 years and now my 11 month old son has started too. I chose this nursery based on my initial impression, which was that the children were very happy and having lots of fun and the staff were cheerful, organised and professional. The nursery has fulfilled my initial impression and more. My daughter loves going to nursery and the staff have worked with her to ensure her continuous emotional, social and educational needs are met. Whenever my daughter presents a new challenge the nursery staff work with me to resolve them together and they are always willing to listen and share ideas / advice. I am extremely confident in the care that Bright Start provide and completely trust the staff and management to look after my children by putting their needs first. Would highly recommend to others.

Since starting Bright Start Day Care my daughter's development has come on leaps and bounds. This, coupled with the warm and friendly reception from the staff, is why I would recommend this Nursery to other parents.
I receive regular updates about what is happening within the Nursery via their handy little app. This includes pictures of what she did that day, what she has had to eat, as well as nap times and other handy bits of information.
Further to this there is a Learning Journal with pictures, observations and an up to date progress chart of how my child is developing vs standards for other children of her age. There are also regular events, dress up days and outings which keeps my little one happy and stimulated.
Well done Bright Start and thanks!

I have had 2 children at the nursery from 3 months to school age. They are so fantastic with the children. The staff genuinely care and are passionate about looking after the children. They have great activities and well planned days. The food is great. Overall I am so happy we chose Bright Start and couldn't recommend them more highly.

My son has been attending Bright Start Daycare since July 2014 and i am very pleased with his development. The staff are very friendly and the atmosphere is great. My son settled in pretty quickly and he has come such a long way. I would 100% recommend this nursery as the setting is great and child-centred. I cannot thank the staff enough. Thank you!!!!!

My son started Brightstart Daycare Nursery at 24 months old. I am extremely happy with the progress he made and I could not ask for more when it comes to how loved and looked after my boy is in here.
Every parent is a bit anxious of leaving their child under the care of someone else. I feel so confident and reassured having all this amazing and caring staff spending time with my son.
I am very happy with the information I am provided with the development of the my child and all the steps are being taken to teach him something new everyday. He is always coming back home with some new ideas, full of excitement and good memories.
I only have positive things to say about Brightstart Daycare nursery, Highly recommend!

Both my sons have attended Bright Start and both have really enjoyed their time there. The staff are a solid team with a very low turn over. Many have been there since we started in 2011. They really love and take care of the children. Cuddles and kisses are a big part of the warmth and family feel of the nursery.
As a pack away nursery the children benefit from different toys and layouts thoughtfully prepared by the staff each day. Outside play is a big thing that the children enjoy too - come rain or shine they get to run around.
My favourite part of Bright Start though is the extra mile they go with learning. If they are making cakes, often they will take the children to get the ingredients from the shop too. Recently my youngest and his friends made Oyster Cards which the staff laminated. The staff then took them on the bus for a couple of stops and back again. I hear the bus driver made sure to look at each of the cards. How lovely!
I also just want to mention the quality of the food.They have a great cook come in and prepare fresh healthy food for lunch. Nothing is processed or reheated. Fantastic!
Its a safe friendly place, where children feel loved.

My daughter absolutely loves going to nursery. The staff are very caring and she has developed a very close and special bond with her carers. I was very anxious to drop her to nursery whilst so young and long hours but she is very well settled and really enjoys doing the range of creative activities. I love all the work she brings home to show me. She has learnt a lot of independency- learning to walk quickly, eating by herself, learning to hold a pen etc I am pleased with how the carers always listened to my requests with regards to her feeding, sleeping, changing, when she was unwell etc I am especially pleased with the daily diary which I can access on the website so I am always aware of how her day was.

My daughter started Bright start when she was one year and surely it has given her a great start. All staff , including the manager are very caring, committed and sincere in every effort to make children enjoy their day at the nursary. Staff in this nursary enjoy what they do and this translates in the work they do with our children. I can see my daughter has developed a lot of confidence in this year and speaks very fondly of her teachers and friends. She is very observant of the attention given to her and acknowledges it , nothing goes past her (lol. )I have utmost trust in the staff and can work peacefully and this is a huge blessing for me. Even when we pray, she will remind me to pray for the nursary staff incase I forget . She values the staff a lot and is happy to attend everyday which again is a huge blessing

My son has attended Bright Start since he was one and I have been so pleased with his progress and the way he’s looked after. The staff are friendly, honest and great with the children. My son is fed a varied balanced diet, which he’s happy to eat. The activities offered to him are fun and educational. I would recommend Bright Start to anyone looking for childcare, they are also good value for money.

My son has been at Bright Start for almost two years and thoroughly enjoys his time there. He has developed a great relationship with all the staff as they provide a loving nourishing environment for him. Their activities are well planned and they take guidance/feedback from parents on a regular basis. The open play rooms and free flow has encouraged independence in my son and he is developing into a confident, kind and inquisitive child under the guidance of the staff.

My daughter attends full time and loves her time at Bright Start. The staff are caring, attentive and put a lot of effort into the activities the children do.
Knowing my daughter is in a lovely environment where she is happy whilst I'm at work is so important to me and she comes home happy every day.

All-in-all, everything is brilliant and Ethan is very happy. The only thing wrong with Brightstart nursery is the access road...

Both my children have attended Bright Start day care. My daugther went to Brightstart from the age of 2 until 4yrs old, she is 10yrs old now. My son has been there since he was 9months old and is 4yrs old now and will be starting reception in Sept 2015. My daugher loved her time at the daycare and made some wonderful friends. One of whom is now her best friend. My son enjoys his time at Bright Start and loves all the daily activities. He comes home tired after a fun filled day of learning and play. All the staff are friendly and caring. My kids have loved every key worker that has looked after them. Regular feedback is always given by the staff and there are also parent/teacher meetings which are really useful. Each child is treated as an individual and given the correct care and attention which I found rather import as my son had some hearing issues which caused a speech delay when he was still little. He did need surgery to correct this, but they took their time and patience to help him develop and he is now thriving young man and is a little chatter box. Bright Start is like a home away from home and I highly recommend them.
