Established in 2006, Brighthelm Pre-School is conveniently based in the centre of Brighton, near the train station, Jubilee Library and Churchill Square. We provide quality, affordable and flexible care for two to five year olds from 8.15am – 4.15pm. Later slots may be available on request.
We also offer a crèche service for children aged between 2 and 5 whose parents or carers are holding or attending meetings or events in the Centre. Please email us for more information.


We have a friendly, safe and stimulating environment where children are seen as individuals. The Pre-School rooms are bright and welcoming, packed with quality educational resources and toys designed to support and nurture children’s learning.

Children are taken out to our playground every day for lots of exciting play opportunity and fresh air.

playschoolPrices are from £13.50 per 3 hour session.

We received a ‘good’ in our latest OFSTED inspection.  OFSTED praised the Pre-school staff for being “good role models’’ who “provide clear, consistent guidance and support”, also mentioning that the children are “confident and settled in the Pre-school”.
