Just a note:
Bright Light Education was created with the desire to support primary school children with their education. Our growth largely depends on word-of-mouth and parent recommendations. We would be so grateful if you could help to spread the word about us! Write us a Facebook or Google review (or both!). Tell your friends and nursery/school parents.

Thank you and best wishes, Charlotte and Dani
