Notes

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.

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. 

We take all funding options (free for 2, 3-4 year funding and 30 hour funding) which you can use during the hours of 9-3 daily.

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