Welcome to Hillcrest Day Nursery

We pride ourselves on providing a safe, warm and friendly environment in which your child can learn
and benefit from the stimulating surroundings.

We cater for children of all ages from babies to schoolchildren so whether you require us to look after your toddler on a daily basis or for your child to attend our after-school club, we can help. We will encourage each child to express themselves through the magic of play which will enable them to meet their developmental milestones and increase their understanding of the world around them. By promoting a positive self image and treating each child as an individual, we aim to develop their self esteem and respect towards others.
