Hilton Pre-Primary presents an exterior that hints at a calm and secure environment, this is reflected in the hearts of their teachers. But, my oh my! Arrive to visit on a crazy theme day and you will be in for a sensory overload. It is bright and busy, with lots of colour and noise and activity as three to six year olds live it up big time. This is proof that within each of these amazing teachers there exists a strong heart, filled with pure serenity, from where they draw strength to take on daily what the average parent runs from after half an hour.
You should return to visit again during an art session or story time when you will see the same children happily centered, quietly taking direction from their teachers. It is these episodes of freedom that satisfy a child's natural zest for the copious release of energy making it easier for them to embrace the necessary times of focus.
This structure strikes a beautiful balance between the requirements of the education regime and a nurturing, modern philosophy which is geared to finally prepare children for that exciting first step into 'big school'. Experiences which maximize the opportunity for children to develop on a physical, emotional and social level are actively pursued.
Children are exposed to regular psychomotor sessions and supervised outings to suitable nearby venues.
Hilton Pre-Primary strives to provide a holistic education system supported by authentic parent/teacher relationships from which easy communication and co-operation can flow. The top priority is always the child.
Suzie Hilliar, the headmistress for the past four years is ably backed by a team of mature, qualified and experienced women. This team shares a tangible enthusiasm and dedication. The aftercare facility which remains open until 5pm is run by two ladies whose combined experience is around 23 years. Gail Drysdale is the friendly and efficient secretary who you should call to visit and see how education can be fun too!
