Welcome to Highfield Outdoor Nursery
Highfield Outdoor Nursery at Dyson Gardens offers provision for two, three and four year olds with an ethos that follows the forest school approach. The children spend each session outside enjoying a unique experience and education.
We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum, and incorporate learning in an outdoor environment where free play, fresh air, exposure to the natural world and physical activity are an integral part of learning. The environment supports children’s communication, imagination and thinking skills; building confidence and resilience.
This site has an indoor classroom used as a base area and for entry and exit. The substantial, secure outdoor area offers children freedom to move, explore, play and learn through interaction with children, practitioners, and natural and recycled materials.
We believe that
‘the best classroom and the richest cupboard is roofed only by the sky.’
