FAQs and General Info
This is my child's first experience going to school. How do you relieve separation anxiety?
Our drop-off procedures are designed to alleviate separation anxiety. Parents drop their children off in our turn-around driveway so that separation takes place outside the school perimeter and is not associated with the school experience. That way, school has only positive associations.
Can I visit the school during the day to see my child?
Hillcrest has an ‘open-door policy’ whereby parents are always welcome to visit their child’s classroom. Parents are encouraged to participate in a special activity with their child’s class, attend school trips, and to visit during a special day. Please speak with your child’s teacher in advance in order to ensure there are not too many visitors at one time.
