Hillside Preschool & Academy
Demonstrating a positive, loving and caring environment that educates, inspires and grows happy and confident Christian children.
Hillside Preschool and Academy's early childhood education program is a non-profit school which was established to meet the needs of the congregation and surrounding community for children 6 weeks - 3rd grade. For more information on Kindergarten through 3rd grade, see the Academy link.
Our preschool programs include (based on age on September 1)
- Little Lambs, ages 6 weeks to 2 years old
- 3's, must be potty trained
Our T5 program is for children that are of age, however the parent and teacher agree it would be better for this child to wait another year before beginning Kindergarten. Children experience excellent curriculum at this age, however promotion for the following year will be into Kindergarten and not 1st grade.
