Highgate day nursery in Morriston, Swansea


Highgate childcare has been established in Swansea for over twenty five years. We have an excellent reputation for providing the highest quality childcare, pre school education, school pick up service and holiday play schemes for the Uplands and Morriston areas of Swansea. We offer a unique child centred approach based around the foundation phase and the forest school outdoor learning ethos.


At Highgate we feel outdoor learning opportunities are very important for our children’s development. Members of our team hold outdoor learning qualifications. Our Forest school ethos curriculum supports the foundation phase curriculum for all age ranges. The aim is to support the holistic learning and development of our children. We aim to encourage and inspire the children to grow in self confidence, self esteem and independence .It is important to provide young children with an understanding and appreciation of the natural world.


Our very popular play schemes were developed due to demand from parents. It is so difficult to find brilliant, affordable holiday clubs for children aged 4 to 12 years. Our refurbished building is adjacent to our day nursery, but separate from our younger children . We run the play scheme all school holidays  and the idea is for a youth club feel. The children plan their activities , although there is basic theme. The children enjoy table football, computer games, craft activities and a brilliant assortment of age appropriate resources. They have lots of fun. The children have their own kitchen/ dining area and serve their own healthy food.


My daughter has been in Highgate for three years and thoroughly enjoys going. The staff are absolutely fab, I love the personal touch (she calls the staff “aunty” and their name). Attending nursery from a young age has contributed to the clever little confident girl she is today. So high five to the uplands team!

What a fantastic team!! My little girl has been in Morriston since April 2014, 4 days a week and absolutely loves it. The activities are great and also each staff member’s input into the child’s development is by far outstanding, helping them develop into their own little person. My princess is now a confident little 2 year old.
Well recommended to everyone.

Thank you Highgate!

My little boy has been going to Highgate for over 2 and a half years now. He loves it – every morning we have a lovely welcome. The staff are really friendly and accommodating. He is always bringing home fab artwork from his busy day!! The pictures on the website are a perfect snapshot of how fun learning can be!! I would thoroughly recommend this day nursery. Well done team Highgate!
