Welcome to Brightlands. I established the nursery over twenty years ago after some mixed experiences with my own children’s nursery care. My underlying philosophy was based on several key principles that still hold true today. They are:
- The child always comes first with their needs and safety at the centre of what we do
- The staff have to be devoted to their role, seeing child care as a vocation rather than job
- The partnership with parents is key and we build trust by being totally open and honest with them. We encourage them to support their child’s nursery progress just as we expect to reflect their home values at nursery
- I wanted the nursery to be good enough to send my own children to – and I subsequently have had two of my own children attend the nursery
We are fortunate to be a family run, family focussed nursery with a strong emphasis on preparing your child for its future and particularly moving up to reception class at school. We are located in our former family home, a Victorian house close to the centre of Cheltenham, with light airy rooms and plenty of access to a lovely garden.
What Ofsted (August 2017) said about us working with parents
Partnerships with parents are very successful. Parents report that they are grateful for the excellent support and guidance they receive to help improve children’s learning at home.
What some of our wonderful Parents say about us.
I feel like we belong to the Brightlands family and I can’t recommend it enough.
I have found Alison’s flexibility very supportive. She helps working parents to manage by offering an individual service.
[The Staff] have all taken time to get to know my son (and all of us as a family!) and they make me welcome when I come to pick him up.
I could not wish for anywhere better for [our son].
