Pre-School

At Hillmorton Primary School we have an excellent onsite Pre-School unit which is Governor led. The unit is run by a fully qualified knowledgeable and experienced Early Years team of NVQ Level three senior Early Years Educators who provide an encouraging and caring environment in which children learn and thrive. The unit is newly built has excellent facilities and has recently had its outdoor area transformed into a fantastic learning environment.
