About Hillcrest Progressive School
Every day is a special day at Hillcrest! Licensed by the Ontario Ministry of Education, we provide Toddler, Nursery, Junior Kindergarten & Senior Kindergarten programs.
Our low teacher/student ratio enables our staff to create a warm and secure environment for each child. Our ratios are as follows: Toddler 1:5, Nursery 1:8, JK 1:10, and SK 1:12. These ratios are met at all times.
The curriculum at Hillcrest encourages young children to explore their environment and express themselves freely. Our program is designed to encourage children to use their natural curiosity in a creative approach to problem solving and decision-making. We have a "hands on" approach to learning through play. Our curriculum allows for active and quiet play, group activities and individual growth opportunities.
About Our Facility
Hillcrest Progressive School is tucked away in the heart of Hogg's Hollow, southeast of Yonge Street and York Mills Rd. Our well-maintained "schoolhouse" provides clean and well-maintained washrooms and air-conditioned classrooms. Our bright and cheery building is an ideal space for learning activities and play.
Hillcrest operates on securely enclosed private grounds, complete with exciting playground equipment. Our "adventure style" play area offers a wide variety of physical and social activities. Children use their imagination as they play in our pirate ship, drive a truck, and explore the many challenging play structures. Our covered sand box offers even more opportunities for imaginative play.
Safety and supervision are always our first priority. Our playground is Ministry inspected annually - and daily by school staff - to ensure it meets all safety requirements.
