Why choose Kindergarten at Hillcrest? Simply put, the foundational skills in numeracy and literacy laid in the Kindergarten years provide the foundation for learning and understanding for all the rest of formal schooling! If you are committing to quality academics, taught in the American curriculum approach at a developmentally-appropriate level, fostering deep understanding of concepts, Hillcrest Kindergarten is the place for your child. Our Kindergarten students do better, on average, than students who enter Hillcrest in Grade 1, Grade 6 or Grade 9. A strong foundation is well worth the "extra tuition"!

Kindergarten at Hillcrest is a balance between highly structured academics and free explorative play time. There are plenty of songs and stories to enrich young minds, and time to draw, dramatize and create in order to foster self-expression. Each child’s unique, God-given gifts are cherished and it is our aim that each one will see and know Jesus Christ in His Word, in His creation, and in each other.

Kindergartners participate in Elementary School activities, including concerts, Christmas Pageant, Field Day, and class chapel presentations.

  • Mathematics
  • Language Arts
