Hilltop Pre-School opened in 1967 and has been providing quality pre-school education to the local community ever since. Hilltop has its own designated classroom and is located within St. Barnabas Children’s Centre, Portishead. The children have their own outdoor space, as well as an all weather outdoor area. The setting also uses the large playground daily at the rear of the Children’s Centre building.
There are places for 21 children each session at Hilltop and children are currently eligible to start aged 2 years, 6 months. Children receive funding the funding term following their 3rd birthday.(Autumn, Spring, Summer). We also accept 2 year funding at the setting.

Each session is staffed by an experienced team, many of whom have worked with pre-school children for a number of years. They have extensive knowledge and understanding of the needs of this age group. In accordance with OFSTED guidelines, each session is operated by qualified, DBS checked staff most of whom hold a Paediatric First Aid Qualification. On entry, all children are allocated a member of the team who becomes their ‘Keyperson‘. During the child’s time at the setting the Keyperson will record observations on their keychildren and correspond with parents via email about learning and developmental progress.
