On Saturday 14th October 2017, Bright Little Stars Stanmore officially opened its doors and was bustling with prospective parents and children from the outset.
Joined by the Deputy Mayor of London for Business (Mr Rajesh Agrawal), Mayor of Harrow (Cllr Margaret Davine), the Mayoress (Mrs Marilyn Devine), Local MP (Bob Blackman), Cllr Ameet Jogia, Cllr Bharat Thakker, Elliott Van Emden (from TV series The Apprentice 2017) as well as guests from Stanmore Place Estate and the Residents Association, the official opening ceremony was a huge success.
Cllr Ameet Jogia says “It is a pleasure to welcome Bright Little Stars to Stanmore. There is a shortage of high-quality childcare in the immediate area and so the nursery’s opening will be very welcome by local residents. Aside from providing jobs, the nursery will also be contributing to our local community by offering use of its dedicated community space for local groups and organisations.”
Bright Little Stars Stanmore is the newest addition to the BLS family. Founded in 2012, the privately-run nursery group aims to provide exceptional care and learning whilst supporting each child to reach their own individual potential in a happy, healthy and safe learning environment. Bright Little Stars respect children as individuals and encourage them to follow their ethos of truth, love and compassion.
The unique Bright Little Stars Learning Programme, purpose built modern facilities, generous outdoor provisions and on-site freshly prepared food make this nursery group one of the most renowned in North West London. Bright Little Stars Mill Hill, the first nursery in the group is rated Outstanding in all areas by Ofsted. They now look to bring this same passion, care and service to Stanmore.
Nursery Manager, Sarina Pithwa, says “Our adventure is just beginning and we look forward to creating memories that will last a lifetime.”
Situated within the beautiful surroundings of Stanmore Place the nursery has been designed to a high specification to meet with three learning rooms, each specifically tailored to different age groups; in addition, there is a communal garden, separate earthy and adventurous baby garden and a modern style balcony area. Stanmore Place is delighted to welcome BLS to their strong community. Deepu Chandralal (Stanmore Estate Manager) commented that “the residents are looking forward to having this established institution within the estate which will definitely aid in having a positive contribution toward the community.”
Bright Little Stars Nursery will be creating 35 jobs for people in the local community and is open 8 am to 6 pm, 50 weeks a year, providing a valuable option for care for working parents. Participating in both 15 and 30 hours free entitlement for 3- and 4-year-olds and accepting Tax-Free Childcare payments for any age this opening will help fill the local shortfall of quality nursery places available.
