Nursery Admissions

Highfield Nursery has a 52 place Nursery which is run by two qualified teachers, four highly skilled and experienced Teaching Assistants and a Welfare Assistant.

We can offer 5 morning sessions or 5 afternoon sessions or 2.5 full days e.g. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday am or Wednesday pm, Thursday and Friday.  Extra sessions can also be paid for to 'top up' the 15 hours entitlement. 30 hour Nursery provision is also now available for working parents.

Nursery applications for 15 or 30 hours childcare should be made directly to the school by completion of an Nursery Application Form, available from the School Office or via the website.
