Highfield Nursery School has been part of the community for over 50 years. The School is open from 8.30am to 3.30pm during term time, providing a range of educational and care places for children from the age two to aged five.


We have a dedicated team of nursery practitioners, teachers and leaders who are passionate about providing the best quality care and education for all children. 


We work in partnership with our parents right from the start, from a home visit and play sessions before a child starts. We build positive relationships with parents and children to ensure every child feels secure and thrives.


Our Ethos 

We build a secure foundation for all children and their families to become happy, confident, caring individuals who achieve personal success and develop a lifelong love of learning.

"Staff develop excellent relationships with children. They know children well and work hard to plan activities that meet most children’s needs and interests. As a result, children are keen to learn and engage quickly in activities. As one parent said: ‘The nursery staff give genuine care and support to the children.’"

Staff Training Day
 

Staff are very well inducted and supervised and have regular appraisals. We close on 3 days per year for staff training. 
 

Our last training day on 22nd October 2021 was our first joint training day as  'Foundations for Children Nursery Schools Federation.' The Federation comprises of Camrose Early Years Centre, Parklands Nursery School, both in Northampton,  and Croyland and Highfield Nursery Schools in Wellingborough.  The training day was focused on the Early Years Reforms for Education and Care of children aged 0-5 years, published in Sept 21.
 

These professional development opportunities allow the teachers and practitioners working with your children to be up to date with the most effective teaching and learning strategies that can help all children achieve their full potential. As you can see from the photos there were many opportunities to share and discuss best practice across the four Nursery Schools.
