Kindergarten At Hillcrest


At Hillcrest Christian School, our elementary program begins in Kindergarten where your child will be nurtured, encouraged, and instructed in a safe Christ-centered environment with an emphasis on spiritual, social, emotional, and academic growth and learning. Recognizing that every child is uniquely gifted by God and learns in his or her own way, each day is composed of a wide variety of learning experiences. A combination of direct and differentiated instruction and hands-on self-directed learning through centers engage young learners. Core subjects include Bible, phonics-based reading and language, math, science, and social studies. Kindergartners also attend weekly elementary chapel and classes in art, music, computer, Spanish, and P.E.

Your child will also experience chapel/study buddies, family groups, 100th Day of School celebration, Dr. Seuss Day, field trips, and International Day, as well as school-wide fun family events.

Please schedule your free Educational Success Consultation with the principal to discuss your child and your goals for their future in kindergarten and beyond.

The school offers a unique one-on-one environment for the students. Their small class size allows for a family like surrounding.

Not only do our students revive a quality education to get them into any college, it is all taught from a Biblical perspective.
