Gapa at Hillcrest

Welcome to GAPA at Hillcrest homepage


Our nursery supports children aged between 2 and 4 with their early development leading to a smooth start in education.


We have a 2-3 year old room and a 3-4 year old room, both with enthusiastic staff who create a educational and purposeful environment for our students.


We set clear behaviour expectations and we learn to demonstrate beautiful sitting, use our listening ears, remember to be kind and share with all our friends.


We have everyday access to indoor and outdoor learning, no matter what the weather.


At our nursery, we share what we learn through our online tapestry system and our learning books where all our wonderful work goes each week.


In our 2 year old room we have a range of creative, stimulating and educational games and activities every day. We also take part in group time where we sing songs, learn about each other and read stories.


During our school day in Miss McCutcheon’s 3-4 year old class we start the day with our maths carpet time, where we learn to count, play games all together and sing maths songs. After our group time we learn through play indoors and take part in different adult led activities as well. After snack time, we start our phonics lesson and we finish with our outdoor learning through play and activities towards the end of the day.
