From the day of their second birthday your child can begin their voyage of fun and discovery at Highland Fling. 

 

Our ethos

We are committed to make each and every one of our children's days as happy, fun and enriching as possible. Learning through play, interacting with new friends and being out lots in the fresh air makes for a very happy childhood. 

We work in accordance with the Curriculum For Excellence and the Pre Birth to Three document and all our learning is “Child at the Centre” based. Our staff consists of a team who have extensive experience in a number of educational philosophies including Froebel, Reggio Emilio and Forest Schools.

I chose the nursery because of the wonderful family feel and because of their emphasis on outdoor play and he has flourished and grown in confidence and curiosity there. The range of activities they get involved in ensure that he is bursting with stories when I pick him up and he is always happy when it is a Highland Fling day.

SESSIONS

EARLY BIRDS

 

8am - 9am

Our Early Birds sessions for the nursery and after-school club are both located at Highland Fling House. Families with both nursery and school children can drop them off together in the same place, making for a more relaxed start to your day.

CORE SESSION

 

9am - 3pm

Children can enjoy lots of outdoor time and will be given the freedom to learn through play. Each child has their own Learning Journal which parents/ carers can easily access via the "Resources" menu.

As we are a Partnership Nursery, each child can receive council funding in their final two years of nursery, equating to 15 hours per week of our core session (during term time).

HAPPY HAGGIS

 

3pm - 6pm

For the children who are attending a full day it’s important to change things up a bit. The
Happy Haggis Club allows the children to take part in lots more fun activities and to mix with their friends.

The key workers are still on hand of course to help in choosing what to do next.
