Welcome to Nursery.
Highfield Nursery School provides a stimulating environment for children aged 3 – 4 and 2-3 years.
We follow the Early Years Fondation Stage (EYFS) curriculum which sets standards for the learning, development and care of children from birth to 5 years old.
Children are provided with as many opportunities as possible to explore and be creative learners. We have a free flow system where children can initiate their own learning, alongside some focus activities where children are supported to develop specific skills. In all our provision areas children can investigate and enhance the Characteristics of Effective learning.
Children will be working and playing together, inside and outside. The unit is organised into well-defined areas, including a well-resourced, outdoor space. Everything is accessible to the children, so that they know where to find things for themselves and how to tidy away. The indoor space consists of two large classrooms which is used as a base area for each key group and for entry and exit.
