The 'outstanding' nursery on a farm!


High Bank is an Ofsted outstanding children’s nursery based on a farm in the village of Stapleton, on the outskirts of Darlington.

We are rated as outstanding by Ofsted and by Day Nurseries as one of the Top 20 children’s nurseries in the North of England, and we strive continuously for further improvement.

We provide care for children aged six weeks through to five years old, and are within easy reach of towns like Darlington and Richmond and outlying villages such as Blackwell, Middleton St George, Eppleby, Melsonby, Barton and Piercebridge.

Our Vision is ‘Inspiring our children for a harmonious, healthier and happier world’, and these are underpinned by our Values of ‘Trust, Belonging, Passion’.


Here are just some of the many reasons we think High Bank would be perfect for your child:
