Hillcrest Progressive School offers a small, warm and inclusive learning environment nestled into the greenbelt of Hoggs Hollow in Toronto.
Our preschool enriches the lives of children between the ages 18 months and 5 years old by providing them with experiences that spark their imaginations, promote their growing sense of independence and nurture their innate sense of wonder and curiosity
Fostering learning, socialization and growth through education
Our robust programs cover every element of early childhood education and play including literacy, pre-mathematics, STEAM, social sciences, languages, the arts as well as gross motor and social skills.
We believe that a strong sense of self-worth is the cornerstone of cognitive learning, so our teachers — all certified educators — cultivate that by celebrating each child’s unique creativity and strengths. We aim to foster in all our students’ confidence, inquisitiveness and interest in the world around them — all attributes that are critical to a child’s development.
Our children learn about various cultures in Toronto and around the world, exploring values and practices in meaningful and joyful ways. They develop a deep understanding of Jewish culture and heritage through songs and education about holiday celebrations and traditions.
