About Bright Stars Childcare and Education Limited

Bright Stars Nursery was first developed in 2008 by Laura Prior-Mangum when the need for a quality full day care nursery in Westbury was identified . Bright Stars 1 opened in April 2008 within The White Horse Children's Centre and it didn't take us long to develop a very good local reputation, we have since opened Bright Stars Preschool, also in Westbury.

 Bright Stars Childcare and Education Ltd is a family run business and we work hard to ensure we provide the best possible care for young children. Bright Stars 1 cares for children aged between 0-5 years and offers a wide range of full and part time places and is open 8am-6pm, 48 weeks of the year. Bright Stars Preschool takes children from the age of 2 years and is open 8.30am-3.30pm, during school term times.


Our mission is to encourage and support the development of each individual child, helping them to become confident and independent learners.  We put a strong emphasis on working in partnership with parents and welcome them to be part of the nursery.

All the staff working at Bright Stars have, or are working towards their Level 3 in Childcare and Education. They all have a wealth of experience of working with children.

 We aim to make each room an inspiring place for children to play with different areas of interest. This includes a quiet, comfortable area where children will have the opportunity to reflect on their learning and rest and a creative area where children can access their own resources. We have designed each room to ensure that children can access the resources and take charge of their learning.

We understand children all learn in a variety of ways so we allow them to choose how they spend their time whilst at nursery. We provide them with plenty of opportunity to play outside. The older children can choose how they spend their time by providing free-flow play between indoors and outdoors.

 Both our nurseries are inspected by OFSTED and you can find an up to date report on the Ofsted website. 

Bright Stars 1 was inspected by Ofsted on 7/8/12 and was given an OUTSTANDING rating!
