Educational Philosophies

Hillcrest Preschool & Daycare is proud of our mission of providing exceptional early education and believes in building a life long love of learning for all our children.

We value a balance of best practice early learning philosophies and models.  As such, we seamlessly blend the following three educational philosophies to create our unique learning environment focused on the individual child and learning through play.

1. Howard Gardner's Theory of Multiple Intelligences, where we encourage our children to explore their diverse cognitive abilities.


2. The Reggio Emilia approach, where our children...
-have some control over the direction of their learning
-are able to learn through experiences of touching, moving, listening, seeing and hearing
-have a relationship with other children and with material items in the world and that children must be allowed to explore
-must have endless ways and opportunities to express themselves


3. The HighScope approach, where we focus on having the children learn through active participatory learning and play.
