Nursery grants are available the term after your child's 3rd birthday. Highfield Day Care Centre is registered for 36 children and is situated in a rural area west of Gateshead. We cater for all children’s individual needs, activities are planned to develop children’s emotional, intellectual, physical and social development. All children have a key worker who plan activities so all children reach their full potential. We have a well established and highly qualified team, with good staff retention. Highfield Day Centre have excellent links with Parents and a group of them have set up “The Friends OF”. They are very proactive and apply for grants to buy resources to extend the children’s learning and development. Visits to the farm or local museums are regularly planned for during the course of the year. Our latest Ofsted inspection was carried out in August 2015 where we received a 'good' grade.
