At The Hills Pre School we aim to provide a warm, caring and stimulating environment that meets the unique and individual needs of each of our children. We believe that each child comes to pre school with a unique set of experiences, knowledge and interests. At The Hills Pre School we believe all children can benefit from an early childhood education designed to meet their individual needs and to facilitate their personal development in all areas. We believe that children learn through meaningful play, which enriches their knowledge and understanding of the world. Our preschool programs provide inclusive settings, as well as a range of structured and non-structured activities, that recognize children's varied abilities, interests, needs, and learning styles. We recognize that children develop at different rates and in a myriad of ways, thus, our programs are flexible and focused on meeting the needs of each child. Children are encouraged to develop independence and an inquiry approach to learning, therefore, they are offered assistance when deemed beneficial and/or necessary. We encourage children to learn and grow by providing a foundation of developmentally appropriate experiences designed to ensure all children can achieve personal success in a safe and nurturing environment. The Hills Pre School Staff provide a safe environment that includes appropriate role modeling and positive reinforcement. We seek to build upon the children's home experiences and acknowledge and value the range of cultural and diverse backgrounds, which exist in our community. As families are the most important people in a young child's life we aim to work in close partnership with our families.
