Outside Explorer Sessions
Children get to go out with two members of staff for a couple of hours 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.
Our new play area
We are delighted to say that the children are loving the new play area.
Different exciting and fun resources are provided covering the EYFS’s seven areas of learning and development, in a calm and relaxing environment.
The setting has now relaxed the bubbles and is now operating free flow once again, following the current government guidelines.
Strict hygeine and social distancing regimes will continue to be adhered to throughout each session to ensure everyone remains safe. Drop off and collection will continue to be at the front door, as we continue to keep our visitors to a minimum for the rest of this school year. Parents are asked to make an appointment if they wish to speak to a member of staff at length or confidentially.

We would like to share with you our newly revamped fantastic garden which the children are absolutely loving spending time in
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.
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.
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.
We appreciate during the current pandemic things are slightly different. Whilst we follow the government guidelines strictly we feel that it is still of upmost importance that parents feel that they are included in their child’s learning journey. So for this reason we are now, alongside the child’s learning journey using the apps – ‘Seesaw’, ‘Ourschools app’ and ‘Whatsapp’ to inform all parents about their child’s day and keeping them up to date with events and information. We do still hold an open door policy for any parents wishing to discuss specific matters.
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.
