Founded in 2012, Bright Little Stars aims to provide a happy, healthy and safe learning environment for children in a caring and creative atmosphere. We respect children as individuals and encourage them to follow our ethos of truth, love and compassion. Having focussed on developing high quality standards of childcare and education for babies and young children through the implementation of the Early Years Foundation Stage, our unique BLS Learning Programme, modern facilities, outdoor gardens and all-inclusive approach, we are able to support our children to gain confidence in themselves and to achieve their full potential whilst nurturing their independence.
We are delighted to announce that BLS, Mill Hill was graded OUTSTANDING in all areas which is the highest outcome achievable, in their most recent Ofsted inspection (January 2017). The four key areas that are assessed are Effectiveness of Leadership and Management, Quality of Teaching, Learning and Assessment, Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare and Outcomes for Children.
For our first inspection in July 2013, just six months after we opened, we were graded ‘Good’ and the report indicated a strong Good. Since then we have been working tirelessly to make positive improvements to the Care and Education we provide.
Through reflective practice and a dedicated, well qualified staff team, led by exceptional leaders, the nursery has been striving to ensure that Quality Care and Education is provided to all of our Bright Little Stars on a daily basis; we still have more to do and have many further ideas to continue this journey.
