An inspiring start...

The High School of Dundee Nursery at Mayfield offers a vibrant, welcoming and stimulating nursery education for 3-5 year-olds, which is designed to get your child's future off to the best possible beginning.

During the January 2021 lockdown our Admissions department remains open and we are looking forward to hearing from you.  If you are thinking of joining us during our online learning period or at any point in the future you can be sure of a very warm welcome.

Although we are not able to arrange physical tours at this time, we will be delighted to share with you our Junior, Senior and Nursery Virtual Tours. These provide you with a chance to hear from pupils, staff, parents and former pupils about our school.

Our overriding aim is to encourage each child to be confident and caring, and to develop a true love of learning. Moreover, the Nursery provides a fun and friendly learning environment which prepares the children for the crucial transition to primary years education, regardless of which school your child goes on to.

Mrs Sarah Tosh, High School of Dundee Nursery Manager, and an experienced Primary Teacher, says, “A young child's brain develops more rapidly up to the age of 5 than it ever will again. It is therefore vitally important that care and education in those early years is of the highest standard.

"Our nursery space, both indoors and out, provides the very best play-based learning opportunities for each child whilst at the same time being nurturing, comfortable, safe and fun. Children at the Nursery learn across a broad curriculum with staff gently extending that learning at every opportunity through play and fun activities. The children will see this as simply playing and having fun. But they are working to develop the skills which will support their future learning without even realising it."

You can find out more about the High School of Dundee Nursery in this section of the website. However, the best way to get feel for the facility is to come and visit us on a typical day. To arrange a tour once we return to normal sessions, or to ask any questions, please contact our admissions team on 01382 202921 or via email at admissions@highschoolofdundee.org.uk
