Early Years Foundation Stage

In Early Years at Hillcrest we aim for children to become independent and capable learners by providing a structured, balanced curriculum. We use play and direct teaching to aid learning across the seven curriculum areas. We aim to provide an ambitious curriculum that prepares children for the national curriculum expectations and their future. We aim for the best for every child by planning challenging opportunities informed by observation and assessment. We aim for children to develop executive function and self-regulation skills to develop positive learning behaviour and therefore develop good habits to take them through their life.

Readiness for Year 1

Our curriculum prepares our children for Key Stage 1 by providing the knowledge and skills needed for future topics that will be covered and ensuring the children are confident learners and can communicate effectively.

We are amazed how you teach them all to read. My child arrived with only basic letter recognition in September. Her family are so impressed with how she reads.
