High Bank Day Nursery has further increased the learning opportunities for children after investing £80,000 in a new classroom.
Known as the ‘Curiosity Cabin’, the timber framed building was opened recently at our farm-based nursery in Stapleton, near Darlington.
It sits next to, and complements, a large poly-tunnel which was converted into an ‘outdoor’ classroom in 2020 to provide pre-school children with their own separate ‘bubble’ after the nursery re-opened following a closure enforced by Government Covid-19 restrictions.
A mum who is fundraising to help her one-year-old son and other children who have suffered a brain injury has described how she “has never been more moved in my life” by staff at High Bank who recently completed a sponsored walk.
Laura Anscomb had no intention of sending her 19-month-old son Vinnie to nursery until she saw an advert on Facebook for High Bank.
