Highfields Preparatory and Kindergarten School specialises in early childhood education and caters for children from Preschool to Year 2.
Our students range from 3 to 8 years and our programs are designed specifically for young learners. Our educators bring a wealth of experience from their training and experience as both Early Childhood and Primary School Educators, 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 96 students enrolled in our various Preschool programs, and 96 students enrolled in K-2.
We have two classes at each level of schooling in K-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. Programs are not repeated from year to year, but instead educators design the educational experiences responsively and creatively each year, to cater specifically for the current needs and interests of the children. In this way, we may be small, but we play big when it comes to teaching and learning.
First time visitors to Highfields School come away with a collection of lasting impressions including the unique small class sizes, the well-resourced and intentionally designed classrooms and the beautiful outdoor environment. That said, what creates the strongest and most enduring impression of Highfields are the extraordinarily warm, authentic relationships that make up our vibrant learning community. This community is nurtured by the strong, meaningful connections between the students, educators and families. These relationships are at the heart of the Highfields’ experience.
