How we do preschool

Nothing is more important than a child’s future. And early childhood education is the key. At Hilltop Preschool, we’re all in, every day, to provide a foundation for their futures. That’s why we say Hilltop Preschool is Where Futures Soar!


Degreed teachers connect with each child to deliver individualized pre-K curriculum that enables school readiness and launches life-long success.

We partner with our families to connect, engage, and nurture the whole child through screenings and referrals, conferences and joint plans, take-home activities, and eight fun, shared family events each year.

We serve the whole child, enriching our children’s educational experience through “specials” — music, mindfulness, science, literacy — and regular field trips that expand their horizons and their potential.

The importance of PRESCHOOL

All children, especially those living in poverty, deserve every chance for success. Investment in youngsters today breathes life into tomorrow; every piece of data and anecdotal evidence validates this understanding.


Early childhood education is foundational to life-long success, and yet quality preschools are least available in the underserved areas of our country. That’s why we are working to make a change in our community, one child at a time, by providing quality, nurturing, and enriching preschool in Columbus’ Hilltop neighborhood.

Hilltop Preschool has Five Stars, the highest rating possible from the Ohio Departments of Education and Job and Family Services’ Step Up To Quality program.
