We Are A Living Wage Provider

Highland Fling is proud to be officially recognised as a Living Wage Employer.

We firmly support the notion of a Living Wage for all care workers.

Our mission is to provide children with a healthy and progressive environment, and it simply wouldn't be possible without our amazing team. We recognise how crucial their role is in each child's development, and what better way to show this than by offering one of the highest rates of pay in UK childcare.

Highland Fling is all about creating a brilliant experience for children and adults alike. Our staff turnover rate is one of the lowest in the country, with several team members still part of the Highland Fling family for over a decade, and for others almost 15 years!

Having such a low turnover brings a wealth of benefits in tow, the most important of which is the opportunity for children to form long-lasting friendships with our staff.

Latest Care Inspectorate Report


"We found strong leadership and effective teamwork from effective, caring and responsive staff."

Highland Fling maintains a very high score in all of our Care Inspectorate inspections (5+). We have received many excellent observations and comments, including:

"The Nursery staff know the children well and provide a high standard of support for their individual needs."

"There was a strong child centered ethos and inclusive practice throughout the nursery."

"The good use of the local community, beach, parks and nursery garden provides children with excellent outdoor experiences."

Eco Schools Award


We have achieved the Eco-Schools Bronze award and are currently heading for Silver.

Eco Schools is an international initiative designed to encourage school-wide community action in Learning for Sustainability

It is an environmental management tool, a learning resource and a recognised award scheme which empowers children and young people to take action in creating an economically, socially and environmentally sound world.

Eco-Schools weaves these elements together through everyday curricular activities undertaken in the Nursery and After School Club and encourages closer links to the community around us.
