What The Highway Day Nursery Is All About

Our Nursery is a large, spacious premises. We have a large play room for constructive activities, art and craft, games, puzzles, sand, water and imaginative play. Another area is used for more physical activities with large construction blocks & Junk modelling &climbing frame, etc. and a wonderful sensory corner to relax and be quiet in. In the 'Back room' children over 3 years use this smaller, quieter room to experiment and concentrate and use modern technology and equipment freely. It is also used as an after-school room for homework and other age appropriate activities.

Outside we have a secure garden (front and back) with grass and a hard surfaced area. There is a wheelhouse (from a fishing boat) for our playhouse, a rowing boat and many items for endless imaginative play.

We grow flowers and vegetables in our garden, explore the great outdoors and gain a sense of awe and wonder at the changing seasons and natural beauty in plants and mini beasts. Plenty of bikes, other building and sensory equipment help us make good use of our outside space and varied surfaces. We aim to go outsideeach day and in all weathers - appropriately dressed.

 

All the children, boys and girls are encouraged and welcomed to join in every activity as much as they can and use all the resources we provide.

Our Commitment to Parents

 

We like parents and careers to feel welcome in the nursery, as we become partners with you in the care and education of your child. Please feel free to talk to us at the end of a session or make an appointment for any longer discussion you wish to have.

Ways you can be involved:

  • Helping on any outings we may plan
  • Helping at our fundraisers
  • Coming to parent's meetings and sharing your ideas & expertise
  • Helping in our large garden - weeding, planting, teaching us how to look after what we grow
  • Bringing in junk & loose parts materials for creative work - boxes, material, wool, foil, wallpaper, buttons, jewellery, soft wood, containers etc.
  • Bringing in things for our topics and colour table.
  • Sharing your ideas and knowledge (especially on current nursery topics)
  • Coming in to play with the children, or read stories. (Sorry not just now through the Covid pandemic)
  • Let us know of your interests, hobbies, work etc. that may be interesting to the children.

Please look out for the many notices and current topics we are covering.

 

We aim to encourage parents to be as much a part of their child's nursery experience as they are able, especially parents of sessional 2 year old children who are free and welcome to stay and play at a session. (After the Covid restrictions are lifted).

 

 

The Aims of our Nursery

We aim to give a secure, stable, warm, and caring environment for children & parents, with a Christian ethos, welcoming families from every culture, race and religion.
We want the children to grow and develop as young competent learners through play and experimentation, most of all to have fun and laughter. 
We encourage them to care for and respect each other so they can build healthy relationships with other adults and children.

We seek to be inclusive & adaptable  to every individual’s needs whether physical, emotional or intellectual, welcoming every child as special.

>We aim to be a valuable and flexible service within the community offering quality childcare and learning through a well-trained, experienced and motivated staff team.

We want every child to feel special and be known so we have a ‘Key- Worker’ system with an adult designated to every child.
