Hillcrest Normal school provides a learner centred environment which strives to ensure every child is a successful learner. When children enter school they bring with them a lot of prior learning and experiences from early childhood settings which complement the curriculum expectations we hold for children in their first year at school.

Providing parents/caregivers/whanau with the time to share information with teachers, giving teachers time to observe children in play situations prior to formal entry and assisting parents to understand how they can support literacy and numeracy learning for their child will give every child the best chance of success.
