General School Mission

Infant Care ages 6 weeks-18 months
Our infants are cared and nurtured in such a way that makes you feel as if we are part of your family. Our long term faculty is committed to the infants at Hillcrest.
Infant/Toddlers ages 18 months-2.5 years
Your child will grow in leaps and bounds in our Infant/Toddler classroom. Language is encouraged and singing is a must. This classroom is full of encouragement from our dedicated faculty. Children learn the importance of taking turns and using their words to express a need.
Toddlers ages 2.5 years-3 years
Our Toddler room is action packed. Our Toddlers are being potty trained and getting the introduction to some preschool material. Name recognition, colors, shapes and sharing and caring are just a few topics introduced in this classroom.
Our preschool classroom is designed especially for our children to explore and ask questions. The children are encouraged work on self-help skills, art projects and making up stories to share with classmates. Creativity blossoms in our spectacular Preschool classroom.
Get Ready Kindergarten, Here we come! In our Pre-K program, your child has the advantage of being taught by Bayvilleâ??s finest! Our seasoned staff keeps in close contact with the public schools to make sure that our children are prepared beyond what is expected upon entrance to Kindergarten.
