Hillend is an integrated pre five centre who caters for children’s needs on an individual basis, encouraging them to play, grow and learn together. We believe in nurturing an inclusive environment where children will feel secure, happy and their individuality, ability and skills are valued.

Partnership with children, parents, carers, other agencies and the local community are essential to providing the best service we can for you and your child. You are central to your child’s learning and from this early point can share your knowledge of your child. Parents/Carers can be involved in many different ways in the centre (e.g. playroom activities, parent/staff meetings, workshops) and we hope you will be able to be involved in as many of these as you can.

Our philosophy at Hillend is to be a place where adults feel welcome and children become Successful Learners, Confident Individuals, Responsible Citizens and Effective Contributors.
