Highfields is a Preschool, and Kindergarten to Year 2 School, situated in Lindfield. Since its beginnings in 1945, Highfields has been defined by its unique learning culture. Deeply embedded within this culture is an uncompromising respect for young children’s capacity to learn, think and work together cooperatively and respectfully.
Our students range from 3 to 8 years and our programs are designed specifically for young learners. Our educators bring a wealth of knowledge from their training across both Early Childhood and Primary School sectors, giving our students the ‘best of both worlds’.
The school is intentionally small, ensuring every child can feel known and celebrated every day. No one at Highfields is ever lost in the crowd. The school is a co-educational and non-denominational setting, with 100 students enrolled in our various Preschool programs, and 96 students enrolled in Kindergarten to Year 2.
We have two classes at each level of schooling in Kindergarten to Year 2, with a class size of approximately 16. These small class sizes enable our programs to be hands-on, collaborative and specifically designed for the group of children enrolled each year. We may be small, but we play big when it comes to teaching and learning.
