What other parents say…

“Both my children have spent many happy years at Highfield Preschool.  Mrs Case and the entire team are utterly wonderful – so caring, nurturing and loving towards the children.  Its like a home from home and I feel very lucky that my children got to spend so much time in such a wonderful place.  I cant recommend this pre-school highly enough and it has been the perfect foundation for starting big school!  Thank you so much Sandra and team for everything that you do”.

“All four of our children have attended Highfield (the youngest is still there). We feel so lucky that they have been able to start their ‘learning life’ at such a loving and nurturing preschool. The teachers, the outside space, the school plays, the singing, the faith filled atmosphere and the wonderful leadership of Mrs Case all come together to create a really special place.”

“Highfield Preschool is truly a hidden gem and outstanding Preschool.  There is just a feeling when you walk into the Preschool which is difficult to put into words that you know it is a very special place.  Mrs Case, the Manager, together with her teachers and teaching assistants provide such a warm, nurturing environment to foster a love of learning with Christian moral and ethical values.  They go above and beyond on a daily basis to help every child’s early learning development, wellbeing and growth in their formative years.  There is a great balance of learning and having fun with a strong emphasis on the importance of outside play in the large garden and wider Highfield Oval surroundings and exercise in the form of weekly PE classes.  The curriculum is creative with focussed termly topics taught by way of weekly sub-topics which are emailed to parents prior to the start of each week.  Families are encouraged to support topic learning at home and to get involved as much as possible.  Testament to this is the large number of grandparents that come in to the Preschool to read with and to the children and a strong PTA with many parents volunteering on a weekly basis to support the Preschool with its daily routine or to share their skills and experiences at specific sessions ranging from around the world cuisine tasting classes to teaching African drumming and lessons in French.  Absolute highlights for our daughters who have adored their time at the Preschool are the whole Preschool singing sessions the children have with live piano accompaniment at the start of each day and the twice yearly productions that all children actively participate in and thoroughly enjoy. As a parent, I cannot speak highly enough of the Preschool and its members of staff and the unforgettable start it has provided our daughters to formal education.”

“Highfield Preschool has been a wonderful experience for my family.  The staff create an environment where all children are nurtured and valued as individuals.  Individual learning styles are taken into account and engagement is encouraged around activities that bring out the best in your child.  I have also appreciated how well we as a family were brought into the everyday life of the preschool.  I can truly say that it has been a joy and a privilege to have children at Highfield Preschool.”

“Highfield is wonderful. It combines a loving, nurturing environment with excellent teaching in a way that has totally exceeded my expectations. Without exception, the staff are welcoming and kind. The beautiful grounds are a delightful bonus that add to the treasure trove of memories that my daughter and I will keep of her preschool years.”

Kitty

“I love the safe, loving environment that is created for the children to play and learn in. I love the care, attention that each child receives, the patience of the teachers as they help struggling children adjust to their new surroundings. My son loves going to Highfield Preschool, he is constantly asking to go even on holidays. I highly recommend this preschool, it has been what we needed.”

Janice

“Our daughter attended Highfield Preschool for two years and as soon as we looked around we knew it was the perfect choice. Not only did they provide her with an excellent education before she started school, the staff were also a tremendous support both when she had an emergency operation, by visiting her in hospital, and also when our son was born as he was in and out of hospital for six months. Our son is now at the preschool until July 2017 and he loves it. Both of our children are confident, friendly and keen to learn and we attribute this greatly to the care and education given to them at Highfield Preschool. We will miss all the staff when we say goodbye this summer.”

Carol

“Highfield lays a fantastic foundation in knowing and loving God, with such genuinely loving staff, a well-structured routine, and a highly impressive curriculum, all wrapped up in a warm Christian environment. Such a transparent parent-teacher system, staff are always happy to help and willing to discuss any queries.  Our little girl cried every morning I left her at her previous nursery, now she wakes up and asks to go to preschool at the weekend!! Quite simply the only place we’d like our little ones to attend.”
