Our Nursery Safeguarding and Child Protection

Safeguarding is at the heart of everything we do here at Hilltop Tots. We believe children learn best when they feel happy, safe and secure and when we work closely in partnership with our parents to ensure children are able to thrive and reach their full potential.
