Your Child Is In Great Hands
Hillview Nursery School is bright and spacious; the physical environment is resourced to a high standard with specialist equipment within our sensory room. We are fortunate to have a large landscaped garden which is partly sheltered so the children can access the outdoor area in all weathers. Outdoor play is an essential part of nursery life – giving children opportunities to use the environment as a source of learning.
Our experienced and dedicated staff are committed to support each individual child and work in partnership with parents and carers to ensure that each child receives the care and provision they need to reach their full potential regardless of race, gender or disability. Our partnership with parents is essential to our work, we believe you are your child’s first teacher and we value your opinions and support. We believe in children learning through play, and we offer a safe, stimulating learning environment to enable children to develop and make the first steps to becoming independent learners.
All activities, experiences and routines are planned to meet the seven areas of learning from the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework. Our nursery routine enables the children to initiate their own play alongside staff conducting focus activities based on children’s interests and next steps. Our aim is to keep children and families at the heart of all we do and offer the best possible start to their future education. We are committed to the safety and wellbeing of every child and their family.
If you have any questions or would like to visit our nursery please contact me and we can arrange an appointment.
We look forward to working with you and your child at this exciting stage of their development.
We need to think big and proactively: we challenge the idea that schools can only focus on learning in some narrow way.
Schools are about welfare, social care and health, with a range of professionals working together. This is even truer for nursery schools.
We have a vision of working cross-sector to build a whole community approach to Early Years to secure that relevant services are provided in an integrated manner and bring significant benefits to our children and their families. We are willing “to act as a hub for our local community and leading the drive for increased quality in our local area” (Department for Education, An early years national funding formula, August 2016, p 37, paras 147 and 148).
We want to ensure that children experience ‘awe and wonder’ each day through meaningful and enriching learning experiences.
