Welcome to Bright Star Day Nursery in Chingford! Ever since starting out as a companion nursery to our Kilburn site, we have striven to provide for the diverse and challenging needs of each child in our care. We encourage participation in a variety of fun, engaging activities that serve to enhance each child’s intellectual, creative, spiritual, social, physical and emotional individual growth – regardless of race, culture, creed or special educational needs.
The quality of our care is supported by our diligent, qualified staff, up-to-date training in safeguarding, and continual communication with our parents, keeping them informed at every step of their child’s early years journey.

how we help our children to get settled in
This is the most important part of a child’s introduction to their nursery, and for this reason it should be carefully planned.
We recommend a settling-in week prior to the child’s start date, to give both children and parents a chance to adjust to nursery in a relaxed way. Coming to the nursery is an exciting, happy and sometimes scary experience. The settling-in week is free of charge and allows both you and your child to become familiar with nursery life, and your child to gradually get used to coming to the nursery and leaving you, their parent.
How It Works
We suggest that in the beginning a parent stay with the child for short visits to the nursery. Later, as the child becomes more confident, the parent can leave the nursery for a short time, making this period longer each time, until the child stays for a full session without the parent.
Making the arrangements
The settling-in period usually lasts for one week, but you can discuss this with the nursery manager and the child’s key person so it can be tailored to you and your child’s needs. The exact programme for each settling-in period will depend on the individual child.
