What Makes HILLTOP Preschool & Kindergarten GREAT!

HILLTOP Preschool & Kindergarten has been serving the Portland, Oregon community for 25 years. At HILLTOP Preschool & Kindergarten we have a sincere love for children and a commitment to team with parents in the education of their children, preparing them socially, emotionally, academically, and spiritually. Our experienced and licensed staff work hard at designing and implementing a safe, fun and quality learning experience in a Christian environment. We have two certified Love & Logic instructors as part of our team and utilize Love & Logic principles for our classroom management.

We are proud of the learning experience available at HILLTOP:

  1. Professional and Loving Teachers
    Our enthusiastic teachers genuinely care about children, and understand each child's individual developmental needs and learning styles. Our teachers are fully certified, many of them have teaching credentials.
  2. Classrooms
    Our classrooms are well-appointed with appropriate learning aids and stimulating toys for creative play.
  3. Reading
    Classroom phonics groups are interactive and allow your child to learn at a pace that fits their needs.
  4. Writing
    Writing is interwoven throughout the curriculum. Children are read to several times a day and many of our students develop reading skills early in their learning experience.
  5. Math and Counting
    Math is presented using calendar, math manipulatives, both oral and written counting, and through the introduction of many other mathematical concepts (sequencing, patterns, spatial reasoning, introduction to addition and subtraction, etc.).
  6. Artistic Expression
    Our art program is focused on process-orientated self-expression, which allows your child to gain confidence and creativity.
  7. Music and Fine Arts
    Children are exposed to musical expression, rhythm, creative movement, dance, and the fine arts through our School of Music and the "Little Mozarts" and "Musical Explorers" programs.
  8. Foreign Language Learning
    Chinese is integrated into the Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten curriculum.  Spanish is included in our classroom curriculum for the 3's, 4's and Pre-K classes.
  9. Physical Play
    Two playgrounds and a full-sized gymnasium allows us to offer a broad experience in physcial education and motor skills.  Our preschool playground is covered for added protection.
  10. The World of Science
    We provide a hands-on, exploratory science program which includes age-appropriate experiments.
  11. Christian Worldview
    God is honored in all aspects of our curriculum, and our Bible curriculum is positive and age-appropriate. Hilltop Preschool & Kindergarten is ministry of Portland Christian Center.  Our preschool presents the world through a Christian worldview and is open to families of all faiths.
