Outside Explorer Sessions

Children get to go out with two members of staff for an hour each week for a term to explore the local environment and develop and extend their learning experiences. Parental consent is gained prior to any child being signed up.

Musical Sessions

Unfortunately we will have to suspend  our Music Mayhem sessions due to the current pandemic.  However, we will continue to develop the children’s love for music, singing and dancing and support areas within the EYFS. 

Coronavirus Update

Following government guidelines we will be open to all children in September 2020.

Spaces will not be limited, however we will continue to work within ‘bubbles’ of a maximum of 15 children.  This will enable us to maintain good strict hygeine and social distancing regimes which will be adhered to throughout each session to ensure everyone remains as safe as possible.

About Us

Bright Start is an independent Pre-school located in the heart of the village of Borough Green in Kent. We have excellent working relationships with all the local Primary Schools. The term before your child turns 2 years+ we can offer a fun, creative and stimulating environment in safe and comfortable surroundings.

About Us

We believe that all children are special, some just need some extra help. We provide a caring environment which recognises the importance of each child as an individual and always consider how we are able to meet the special educational needs of each and every child and their family.

Our Principles

Communication with parents is vital and at the heart of our ethos. We believe in an “open door policy” – Parents and carers are welcomed into the setting at drop-off and pick up time. This is treated as a time for informal discussion and a time for us to get to know the family as a whole.

Parents

Our Mission & Vision

We provide a welcoming, friendly and caring environment which recognises the importance of treating each and every child as an individual, always considering how we are able to meet the needs of all children and families.  We advocate ‘Learning through Play’, helping children to learn whilst enjoying themselves by providing fun and exciting activities and opportunities, whilst encouraging them to achieve their full potential in all areas of their development.   We encourage our children to become responsible in their actions and help them develop into competent, confident and independent individuals which gives them a good foundation for future challenges.
