Brightside Preschool

Brightside Preschool is an Early Years setting located at Breaks Manor in Hatfield. 

We provide sessional care for children aged 0-5 years between 8.50am and 2.50pm, Monday to Friday during Term Time. 

Brightside Preschool is a Community Interest Company, which means we are not here to make a profit by charging you high nursery fees! 

Our aim is to make childcare affordable and accessible to families in Welwyn Hatfield.

Our Ethos

Showing Young Minds the Brightside in Every Day

At Brightside Preschool we provide a warm, friendly and nurturing environment where children can thrive and develop at their own pace. Children are free to play and explore both inside and outside, with practitioners on hand to support and extend their learning.

Through our diverse curriculum, we will show young minds the Brightside in every day, introducing them to new topics and experiences, exploring the children’s individual interests and encouraging their natural curiosity. 

Our teaching methods are inspired by The Curiosity Approach, tapping into a range of theories of children's learning and development including theorist such as Reggio Emilia, Maria Montessori and Jean Piaget.

Our homely environment is located within the ground floor of Breaks Manor, with direct access to the gardens. We will make regular use of the onsite sports court in our 'Let's Move!' sessions as well as enjoying Tots Tennis with 'My Tennis Coaching'.
