‘Family, Community & You’
Hillview Resource Centre provides a low cost quality community based Early Years service, Rascals (Play Group) and Ramblers (Preschool) for children aged 18 months to school age across two sites on the Hillview Estate.
The services are staffed by qualified Early Years Educators (EYE’s) and our Early Years & Family Support Coordinator. In a recent Department for Education & Skills ‘focused review’ of our ECCE setting in May 2018 the service were given an excellent report covering the following areas:
|Quality of context to support children’s learning and development||Very Good|
|Quality of processes to support children’s learning and development||Very Good|
|Quality of children’s learning experiences and achievements||Very Good|
|Quality of management and leadership for learning||Very Good|
All permanent staff are completing QQI Level 6 (Hillview’s minimum qualification) in Childcare and QQI Level 8 (Honours Degree) in Early Childhood Education. Rascals caters for a maximum of 10 children, Ramblers caters for up to 16 children and there are qualified Room Leaders in each setting who can liaise with parents and direct staff.
We offer Community Childcare Subvention (CCS) Scheme and the Early Childhood Care & Education (ECCE), the free preschool year (38 weeks only) over two years from September 2017. Our service is open between 9am to 1pm (9am to 12 noon for ECCE), five days a week.
