Kids are well looked after. They have programs that make science interesting for kids. They also teach them how to nurture our environment. We’re really happy that our daughter went to Brightstar. They have taken good care of her for the 2 years that she was there which was made tough as well as it is during covid.

My son has been at Bright star for almost 4 years and it is like a second home to him. The owner Linda is in the floor all day and is able to attract and retain a quality group of teachers.
Brydon Gillam likes: The teaching team. Catering. Hours and flexibility.
Brydon Gillam dislikes: Nothing really., Maybe make more use of the vertical space in the playgroun

I love this place. For me it is convenient to where I live so makes drop off and pick up a breeze.
The team are amazing, they know all the kids and parents names, they make sure our precious babies are well taken care of.
They provide te reo and singing, messy play and before school prep. My son has been at the centre since he was 7 months, he is now almost 5 and I cannot be prouder of the boy he is becoming, all thanks to Linda and the Bright Star team.
Highly recommend the centre.
Natalie Dickson likes: Te reo,  inclusion,  the atmosphere of the centre. The teachers
Natalie Dickson dislikes: I really dislike nothing.
