Amazing level of Care
"I'm over home due to a death in the family. We've put our 3 year old son into Bright Beginnings nursery on the Old Belfast Road while we're over. I can't understate how amazing they have been with my son. You can tell the team work so well together. Everyone greets my son at the door by name even if they don't work in his room. They do all the regular nursery stuff really well but seem to go that extra bit further to make every kid feel at home. It's been such a horrible timefor me but they have made it so much easier that it could have been."
Olivia has really enjoyed her time at Bright Beginnings and I know, like me, she will miss it a lot. Thank you all for looking after her so well and makin it special for her. We will come back and visit. Its always sad to be leaving but the memories are sweet. Thank you again."

"Every child deserves a Bright Beginning"
We accept each child as an individual by respecting parental cultural, heritage and language. We strive to ensure that each child in our care is provided with every opportunity to achieve their full potential at their own pace in a safe, warm and loving environment. To achieve this, we work alongside parents in the care of their child. We give them daily updates of their child's progress. We want every child to feel secure in our care and we respect parents for trusting us with the care of their children.
At Bright Beginnings we follow the curriculum guidelines for 3-5 year olds. For all the age groups we encourage outdoor play in our extensive, safe, fully-enclosed playground area. Children need fresh air and space to release energy and encourage their all round growth and development.
Each room is equipped with suitable materials for educational learning. They play with many different resources which expand their learning but, most importantly are FUN!
Through play every child learns new concepts in a natural way without any pressure. All of these early experience are building blocks for their intellectual, physical, emotional and social development.
We also encourage visitors to Nursery to introduce ideas about the world around us. Some of our many visitors to Nursery include:
The Librarian, The Fire Brigade, Community Dentist, Zoolab and Monkeynastics!
We have taken part in the EHSSB Dental Health Award Scheme since 2003 and have won the Gold Award!!
As you can see already, we have a very busy, lively Nursery with lots to stimulate your child's all-round development.
