Highmoor Nursery School
Offering Nursery and Pre-school education since 1993, we are based in the beautiful surrounds of green fields and the rural village of Highmoor, in its light and spacious Memorial Hall.
Our team is a unique one. Made up of highly qualified, passionate and dedicated staff, our aim is to create a happy, caring place that helps children reach their full potential. Our staff put nurture at the centre of their care, recognising each child’s individual needs, encouraging positive self-esteem and confidence.
We work closely with parents and carers to ensure children begin their educational journey in an environment that fosters consideration for others and the world around them.
The children love our large fenced garden; here you might find them getting stuck into outdoor activities or digging in the vegetable garden where we grow our own produce. Beyond the fence is open farmland, where the children can watch the farm activities throughout the seasons.
Inside, is a creative and stimulating space - from educational and fun toys and cosy book corners, to creative and ICT activity areas for imaginative play and fun learning. There is also a well-equipped kitchen for cookery sessions.
