Welcome to Hillcrest Preschool, where we nurture each child’s holistic growth and development through the transformative power of play.
Our approach encourages exploration, creativity, and social development, supported by a curriculum that promotes physical, emotional, and cognitive growth. Embracing the inherent curiosity of each child, we foster inclusivity, diversity, and community, guiding young minds to connect with the natural world and cultivate a lifelong passion for learning.
With a balanced blend of structure and flexibility, we cherish each child’s unique abilities, fostering a positive self-image and preparing them for a bright and confident future. 

A Message From our Director
Dana Trowbridge

Because play holds such rich potential for promoting children’s cognitive, linguistic, social, and physical development, we view play as a key element in our curriculum. Children’s spontaneous play is a window into their ideas and feelings about the world. As such, we use these ideas to create an emergent, child directed curriculum.
