Hilltop School Program Philosophy

Hilltop School, through the use of developmentally appropriate activities, provides a safe, nurturing and supportive environment where children can develop physically, socially, emotionally and cognitively and where relationships are formed with other children and a network of caring adults.  Our goal at Hilltop is to provide an environment filled with opportunities for children to explore and learn through fun, hands on activities.  Utilizing the Early Childhood Learning Guidelines, teachers identify each child's individual needs and abilities and then plan activities based on these observations.  We believe children learn best when they are interested in what they are doing, have readily available adult support and are involved in hands on activities that relate to what they already know.
Call to set up a tour.  We would love to tell you about our programs and show you our beautiful historic building.
