We are proud to offer our separate on-site Foundation Stage facility equipped with classrooms, play areas, outdoor play areas and equipment in a spacious environment, including our natural, secure and fun outdoor forest learning area.

Equipment / Resources

To offer growth and stimulation, our Nursery team have carefully thought of age appropriate materials and toys which help to develop all the senses and make each day at Heathfield House interactive, fun and of course knowledgeable to assist with growth and learning. We continue to review learning materials and equipment depending on individual or whole class needs.

All the equipment is shared across the foundation stage; we find this helps to develop a child's values, sharing being a big one!
