The children's day predominantly consists of free flow play throughout our three areas. Our messy play room, our main play room and our large outdoor area. We value time spent outside as an extension of our learning environment and use it as much as possible. We have a large outdoor climbing frame, mud kitchen, stage, access to water play and an all weather shelter to name a few of our outdoor facilities.
We provide a snack bar for the children to choose to come and eat a piece of fruit and drink milk or water mid session.
We follow In the Moment Planning at Highdale, enabling us to follow individual children's interests and shape the child's learning around those interests, ensuring that all children are valued.
Throughout our session we offer a variety of activities that support the children's learning, such as singing, Helicopter stories, The Poetry Basket and group games.
All staff regularly attend as many courses as possible to ensure proffesional development.
