Welcome to Highlands Nursery School
Our goal at Highlands Nursery School is to provide a secure environment that contributes toward a positive self-image for each child.
Daily activities are carefully planned to offer the security of a routine, which provides a wide range of experiences towards the development of a child's mental, physical and social competence.
Program activities include free and organized play, daily unit discussions, seasonal activities, finger plays, music, arts and crafts, science, show and tell, snack, rest, outdoor play and story time.
We mix age groups in each classroom. Age relationships play an important role in developing a positive self-image.
All this is offered in a cheerful and loving environment where a child can feel valued and enjoyed for him/her self.
