I have been attending Bright Stars with our son since he was a few months old. He is now 2 years old. The team create such a welcoming, vibrant and supportive atmosphere for both children and parents. We really do feel part of a family there. The group has been beneficial in so many ways - giving ideas for sensory toys and providing my son with the opportunity to explore and enjoy all the toys, books and equipment. It has also been a way of meeting other families, forming friendships and sharing experiences, as well as being kept up-to-date on relevant training sessions and information.
