Welcome to Heathfield House Day Nursery
Where every day is a fun day
Heathfield House Day Nursery is one of three family run day nurseries, owned by Mother and Daughter, Lisa and Natasha Kirkwood. Heathfield House offers full and part time childcare for 0-5 year olds, along with holiday club for 5-11 year olds, in a caring and homely environment. We pride ourselves on delivering high quality childcare and pre-school education, which is reflected in our most recent Ofsted report. We aim to be a “home from home”, especially somewhere the children can enjoy a wide range of activities.Teaching and learning is based on the “Reggio Emilia” style approach, where children are given the opportunity to develop in stimulating environment, rich with learning opportunities. We are particularly passionate about children enjoying the outdoors and have a stunning garden area, where children can truly thrive, and develop socially, emotionally and physically.
Our younger children are cared for in a brand new baby unit , which is rich in natural light and has direct access onto the garden. Our babies benefit from a calming environment, full of resources which feed their curious young minds as well as practitioners who are highly qualified and experienced to tend to their needs.
We believe children should be active participants in their own learning, so a child-led approach to planning is adopted by practitioners and activities are often spontaneous and child initiated. Practitioners have a strong focus on helping children develop into confident, independent individuals who are ready for their next stage of life and learning.
Parent partnerships are particularly valuable to us and we believe parent’s should be able to contribute to their child’s learning whilst at nursery. As such, we use a programme online to observe and monitor children’s progress which parent’s can view and contribute to, if they wish.
We hope you find our website informative but would like to invite you to come and take a look around for yourself, to see what we have to offer!
