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.

During the pandemic we used a variety of online media to inform parents.  Due to the positive impact of these we will continue to use ‘Seesaw’ 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.
