The children enjoy Welsh playgroup sessions. Policies are available in English and Welsh. We explore Welsh language and culture during our nursery day.

At Highgate Day Nursery we have built up an amazing reputation with over 30 years experience. We pride ourselves on making parents feel comfortable leaving their children in our trusted care. Our reputation speaks for itself.
We are registered to care for children from four months to five years in our day nurseries and pre-schools. We also offer high quality, flexible and affordable after school clubs and holiday clubs for children aged 4 to 12 years.
Highgate works with our parents to meet each child's individual needs. Our parent app is a fabulous way to keep in touch with our parents. We post photos of a child's activities, events and record a child's learning journey throughout their time at Highgate.
Our daily routine and environment uses a consistent child centred approach to support individual care routines such as sleep, toileting and mealtimes. Our menu changes each season reflecting on seasonal dishes and our commitment to local sourced produce. We enjoy growing our own fruit and vegetables.
Our ethos centers on outdoor learning with a Forest school curriculum, encouraging a connection with nature and promoting an active, healthy lifestyle. We believe every child deserves the opportunity to grow through play and exploration in a safe and loving environment.
