Group Leader – Caoimhe
We offer an afternoon session for our pre-school children who attend Nursery School in the mornings. We collect children from school and they enjoy a wide variety of challenging activities including cooking, drama, science, art and active play. This allows the children to express themselves in a less structured environment.
We have a large, natural outdoor space and pre-schoolers like to explore what nature has to offer in all weathers. Puddle suits at the ready! Hillcrest provides puddle suits so that everyone can jump in muddy puddles worry free.
Pre-schooler’s also love to get creative in our mud kitchen, show off their artistic flair by painting on our large outdoor easel, test their early maths skills with the water wall and develop language skills by telling stories in the fairy garden.
