Welcome! Hill & Dale is an early childhood education program for infants and children up to six years old. For over fifty years, we have been devoted to nurturing the individual development of children, families and educators within the community.
Parent Education is highly valued at Hill & Dale and begins with the My Family and Me classes for parents of children not yet enrolled in the school. Facilitated by our professional educators, these classes provide an opportunity for parents to learn about the physical and emotional growth of their child, to share the common joys and frustrations of parenthood and to get a feeling for Hill & Dale.
The philosophy of learning and living at Hill & Dale is eclectic. It is based on the belief that healthy human emotional development is dependent on secure, empathetic and nurturing relationships. An environment that is structured and predictable is required if children are to develop a balance between dependence and independence.
Life at Hill & Dale is a series of hellos and goodbyes. Every year from June to September, endings and transitions are taking place.
