wELCOME TO hILLSIDE nursery sCHOOL
Every child is unique.
At Hillside Nursery School we provide a learning climate that promotes curiosity, exploration and creativity.
We seek to give our children the very best start in education by creating a unique place where play is valued and where they have fun and learn through exciting, challenging experiences, which helps to lay down the foundations for lifelong learning.
Every child is unique and we recognise and foster this by providing an enabling environment which reflects the children’s needs and interests. We ensure that children of all abilities have the opportunity to develop social, emotional, physical and cognitive skills, becoming both confident and independent learners.
OFSTED: “Teaching and the curriculum are good, enabling children of all abilities to learn well.”
We have places to 2, 3 and 4 year olds. We offer the free entitlement of 15 hours per week during term time to all 3 and 4 year old children. We have places for 112 children, 56 children per session. We offer funded and fee paying sessions to 2 year old children during term time.
We encourage the children to attend 5 mornings or 5 afternoon sessions to provide consistency and enable them to build friendship groups. However we offer a number of flexible places. We also provide a number of 30 hours free education places for those families that are entitled to the additional hours.
Each nursery session lasts for 3 hours and we encourage punctuality and good attendance. Wrap around care is available, which includes breakfast club, lunch and additional sessions. These can be booked and paid for at reception.
Whatever your situation, please do not hesitate to speak to a member of staff. We work hard to support our parents and families and will do everything in our power to accommodate your requirements.
