Are you searching for a preschool that provides an exceptional learning experience for your child? Look no further than Hillcrest Progressive School! Located in the greenbelt of Hoggs Hollow, our school offers an enriched academic curriculum in a warm and inclusive setting for children between the ages of 18 months and five years. With a strong focus on nurturing each child’s creativity, independence, and sense of wonder, we create a foundation for lifelong learning and success.
Unleashing Creativity and Celebrating Individuality
At Hillcrest Progressive School, we believe in the power of self-worth as the foundation for cognitive learning. Our certified educators understand that each child is unique and celebrate their creativity and strengths. By providing a caring and inclusive community, we create an environment where children can flourish and develop a strong sense of self.
Integrating the Best Educational Practices
Our approach to learning is inspired by the best educational practices and driven by innovation and creativity. We follow the principles of Developmentally Appropriate Practice (DAP), which encourages children to construct knowledge actively rather than passively receiving information. All our educators are Registered Early Childhood Educators (RECE), ensuring that they are trained, qualified, and accountable. With a minimum of 500 practical hours and ongoing professional development, our educators bring a wealth of experience to the classroom.
A Well-Rounded Curriculum
We take pride in our well-designed, progressive curriculum that caters to the individual needs and interests of each child. Our high teacher-to-student ratio ensures personalized attention and a supportive learning environment. In addition to core academic subjects, we offer specialty classes such as Hebrew, French, Music and Movement, Sports, STEAM, and outdoor programming. We also incorporate Jewish values, traditions, culture, and holidays into our curriculum, fostering a sense of heritage and diversity.
A Community of Families
At Hillcrest Progressive School, we understand the importance of building a strong community of families. We believe in open and constant communication between parents, teachers, and administrators. By forming lasting relationships, we create a warm and welcoming environment where everyone feels connected and supported. Our parents consistently express their gratitude for the care and dedication we provide:
“Because of you, I was able to send H to school every single day during a very stressful and difficult time. Because of you, I was able to feel at ease that he was being cared for and safe. Because of you, I was able to keep my family safe. Because of you, H has grown so much more than I could have ever imagined. Thank you for making him feel safe and loved and teaching him so much.” – T and P
