Welcome to Highview Kindergarten



Highview Kindergarten is registered with OFSTED for children from the age of birth to 5 years and undergo regular inspections. The Kindergarten was opened 20 years ago. Alex Westrup, the Area Manager, works closely with Sacha Seabrook, Operations Manager, to oversee the running of the nursery. Julie Fry, the Manager, is responsible for the day to day care, together and with her team, they pride themselves on consistently maintaining a high standard of childcare with emphasis on education. The family owned company also owns another similar Nursery in Urmston.


Our most recent OFSTED inspection was held in August 2014, for which we were awarded the grading of ‘OUTSTANDING‘. 


The Nursery is set in a delightful 150 year old stone built residence of great charm and immense character with spacious rooms and good sized private lawns and an all weather play area. Highview occupies a pleasant and quiet location in Sharples, just one mile from Bolton’s ring road, easily accessible from Astley Bridge, Heaton, Smithhills, Horwich, Belmont, Egerton and Dunscar.


We aim to provide a happy and secure environment for your child, where your child will be cared for and educated during his/her most formative years. The activities in the kindergarten are all based on the belief that children learn and develop through play. The older children enjoy our weekly visits from our French Teacher, as well as visits from ‘Lancashire Dance Academy‘ who concentrate on developing physical skills and control. Swimming lessons are also available for the over threes.


We pride ourselves on having a professional team of qualified and experienced nursery staff, as well as an Early Year Professional (EYP) and a Qualified Teacher. We strongly recommend that you make an appointment to visit the Nursery as soon as possible, as places do get booked up well in advance. If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact Julie, Heather or Sacha.
