Welcome to Young Explorers, the Early Years Unit at Hillside Community Primary School.
We provide care and education for children from age two to the end of Reception.
Our 2 – 3 year olds are Discoverers.
We discover who we are, what we can do and the world around us. The Discoverers Room has been purpose built with our youngest learners in mind. Our stimulating resources and lovely staff inspire our children’s natural curiosity as they explore and discover within a safe and nurturing environment.
Our 3 - 4 year olds are Adventurers.
We question, we investigate and we take risks. The world is our adventure! The Adventurers room is the home of our rising 3s and pre school children. An exciting and constantly evolving environment supports and encourages our children’s increasing independence and confidence as they continue to learn about the world around them.
Our 4 - 5 year olds are Pioneers.
We experiment, we create and we adapt. We are the pioneers of our future! The Pioneer’s room is where you will find our Reception class. Here your child will access a dynamic curriculum that will inspire and challenge their understanding of the world around them. As they continue to learn through play, they will complete the Foundation Stage and be ready for new adventures in Key Stage 1.
Young Explorers LOVE Hillside’s forest school!
