Mission Statement

The mission of St.Michael’s Pre-School Hilperton is to provide a stimulating and high quality learning environment that meets the needs of the individual child within safe, secure, inclusive, nurturing and happy surroundings.

At St. Michael’s Pre-School we adhere to the Early Years Statutory Framework and use the Early Years Foundation Stage Guidance in order to support and extend the unique child within the Prime and Specific areas of learning, through play.

We believe that all children can learn and we provide opportunities and activities that recognise children’s varied abilities, interests, needs and learning styles.
