The school-age program provides before and after school care and a summer camp. During the school year we provide bussing to and from Brown Local Schools. During the summer camp for ages K-12 years, we fill the day with fun activities and events. Water play, trips to Malvern Park and other fun curriculum-based activities line up with the Ohio K-12 standards.
Hilltop also has partnerships with outside agencies, such as an OSU extension. Our goal is to provide the school-agers with a safe and fun summer full of friendships and memories.
Pre-School (4 years – 5 years)
Hilltop Learning Center is a Step-Up to Quality rated program. In the preschool classroom your children are loved, valued and respected. Each day, your child will experience the joy of learning with the Creative Curriculum, which aligns with the Ohio Early Learning and Development standards. The Creative Curriculum is specially-designed to meet each child at their level and rate of development and learning style.
Parents love that we offer a Christian environment where our end goal is to prepare your child for elementary school in all areas of development (emotional, language/literacy, physical, cognitive, and especially social skills) using hands-on learning environments.
PreK (2 ½ years – 4 years)
Preschool lays the foundation for brain development and future learning. At Hilltop Learning Center we want the children to be happy and excited about learning. We do this by setting positive foundation for future school years. Our PreK classroom provides hands-on experiences and opportunities for children to learn and grow with the Creative Curriculum! One of the most important things that your child will learn in the PreK classroom is the social skills that they need to succeed in school and life.
We help the children with learning to share, being kind, follow directions and process emotion in a healthy manner. We communicate with the children with loving and rich conversation because communication and language skills develop so extensively during the preschool years. At Hilltop we believe children learn through play. We do this by providing quality, loving activities that cover all areas of development: social, emotional, physical, mental and spiritual.
Toddlers (1 ½ years – 2 ½ years)
The toddler classroom is a fun, energetic, high pace classroom. We love doing crafts, singing songs, and reading lots and lots of books that align with the Creative Curriculum. Throughout the day your child will have opportunities to have fun through experiences such as free play, singing and dancing, crafts, and learning new skills such as counting, learning colors, and creative arts.
There are tons of toys to play with that support the Ohio Early Learning and Development standards. Your child will be loved and cared for by the teachers and make new friends and memories in the Toddler classroom.
Nursery (8 weeks – 1 ½ years)
The Hilltop Learning Center infant class provides care for ages 8 weeks to 18 months. Infants are nurtured and taught with quality care that reaches above and beyond the requirements of ODJFS licensing rules.
Daily activity plans provide a fun filled day pf buggy walks, outdoor play time and other curriculum-based activities that fall within the early learning standards. Providing peace of mind to each parent is our goal while providing your child with a safe, nurturing and learning environment.
