Hillcrest Progressive School is tucked away in the heart of Hogg’s Hollow, southeast of Yonge St. and York Mills Rd.
Our well-maintained schoolhouse provides clean washrooms and air-conditioned classrooms. Our bright and cheery building is an ideal space for learning activities and play.
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.
Hillcrest prides itself on promoting and nurturing the whole child. Our teachers and staff, many of whom have an excess of 15 years of experience at Hillcrest, work in harmony to ensure a positive and nurturing environment is provided for all children. Our qualified and dedicated teachers bring a wealth of experience through education and personal knowledge. They are selected for their specialized training in Early Childhood Education, and are all registered with the College of Early Childhood Educators.
Children use their imaginations as they play in our pirate ship, drive a truck, climb the spider net and discover many challenging play structures. Our covered sandbox and large, shaded “beach” area offer even more opportunities for imaginative play.
Our students develop a love of nature as they explore our expansive outdoor wonderland. They learn about themselves and the world around them, while developing independence, positive self-esteem and self-confidence.
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.
