We are situated in Borough Green Parish Hall, 25 Quarry Hill Road, Borough Green, Sevenoaks, Kent, TN15 8RQ

We are extremely lucky to have an outside area which the children can have access to for the majority of the day, operating a free flow system so that they can independently choose where they wish to learn and develop.

We also have an upstairs room which enables children to have access to a quieter space throughout the day.

We have parking facilities on the premises that are accessible to parents at all times during the day.

Our philisophy at Brightstart Preschool Ltd is quite simple, we advocate "learning through play", which helps children to learn whilst enjoying themselves at the same time.  We create an informal but structured learning environment where the children can feel a real part of it without any inhibitions so that they can develop naturally and be able to express themselves freely.

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 education needs of all children and families.

We advocate learning through play helping the children to learn whilst enjoying themselves and developing their independence.

Each child is treated as an individual and guided through the Early Years Foundation Stage using observations and the knowledge of the child and family.  Planning is designed by the child's key worker to meet each of the individual learning and development needs of the child, whilst using the child's interests to develop this. 

Payments can be made in cash, bank transfer or child care vouchers.
