Our Rooms

Our Rooms

Activities - craftsWe have equipped our rooms safely, according to age ranges, with an assortment of toys, which are rotated daily.

This way each child has the opportunity to explore and learn through a variety of toys and activities, suitable for his/her age and ability.

Highfield House Day Nursery has four groups based on age and ability.

We have key groups within these age ranges, which means your child will be allocated a member of staff who has responsibility for developing a trusting and caring relationship.

By using our key worker system, we ensure that your child settles into nursery with care and ease for a flawless transition from home to nursery. Our aim is to create a safe and nurturing environment for children to build confidence and broaden their experience™.

 

Rooms - lunch

 

We celebrate meal times as a whole nursery in our wonderful garden room with views of rolling hills, sheep, horses and tractors!

In addition, the nursery features a brand new sensory room to enjoy some peaceful moments together, while adoring... our own reflection in the mirror, twinkling lights, bubbles, new textures and smells.

The children will use the other rooms depending on the activities chosen for a particular group.

Our Kitchen

Rooms - ChefWe are passionate about food and ensure all of our children get their 5 a day when they are at nursery. Our menus are varied and incorporate seasonal fruit and vegetables.  We maintain a flexible approach and adapt our menu based on what the children can pick from the kitchen garden that morning.

All of our food is freshly prepared on site by our experienced chef. We take great care in sourcing high quality ingredients including free range meat and organic milk.

We tend our own fruit and vegetable patch with the children. This encourages them to nurture our precious world and use renewable resources. They also to enjoy learning about fruit and vegetables, as well as eating some unusual flavours.
