Welcome to Hillend Children’s Centre. I hope you will find the information on our website helpful as you settle into the centre.
This is the first step in getting to know each other, we recognise the importance of this step for you and your child in their learning and educational experiences. We want you to feel that you can approach me or any member of the staff team to talk over any personal concerns or questions with regards to your child’s progress.
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.
We look forward to getting to know you and your child and hope you enjoy your time at Hillend.
Kind Regards Head of Centre : H Lesley O’Hagan
