What parents are saying about Hillcrest Academy…

Amy and the entire staff are the best around. We have been sending our kids to there for 6 years and we love Hillcrest Academy!

-T. Denning (11/2013)

My child has been attending Hillcrest since she was about 5 months old, and loves every day! She gets so excited when we’re walking to her classroom, and gets upset when it’s time to go. The entire staff is so incredible, and they are all always smiling and happy! You can tell when people love what they do, and the staff at Hillcrest love it and they show it. It is an amazing feeling to know that when you drop your child off they are cared for in the most fun, loving, supportive and educational ways – it’s so much more that a parent can hope for! We’re not the only parents we know who drive a town or two over to Hillcrest, because it is more than worth it!

-M. Tuminaro (9/2013)

Hillcrest Academy is a wonderful school that creates a wonderful learning environment! The staff (from the owner down to the teaching staff) has always been caring and supportive. My daughters have been there approx. 3 years and have loved every minute of it!!!

-B. Kangas (10/2014)

We have been using Hillcrest Academy for 8 years. My kids (and my husband and I) absolutely love it. I am a hairdresser in the same town and recommend them all the time. The staff is very professional and at the same time friendly and genuinely care for the children. I feel that there has always been open lines of communication with the owner/director and all of the staff. The facility is kept very clean and organized. They offer a hot lunch menu which makes my life so much easier! They do many projects and activities with the kids to keep them engaged. The playground area is enormous and they have an awesome built-in pool for summer fun. I am so glad to have found this place so many years ago and would never consider using anyone else to care for my children.

-J. Flowers (6/2014)

My daughter LOVES hillcrest academy! The teachers, teachers’ assistants and the rest of the staff are always so nice and friendly and the rooms are always so clean. Hillcrest Academy has taught my daughter so much in the past 3 years it’s unbelievable. I highly recommend them.

-C. Reid (1/2015)

My son Nicky has been going here for about 2 years now, and the results are amazing! When he first started, he was so shy that he wouldn’t even talk to other kids. Now he has friends, he loves his teachers, he loves going on class trips, and he always comes home excited about what he learned. The teachers at Hillcrest Academy have done everything… They even worked with me to potty train him when he first started! And Amy, the director, treats everyone like family. I am never out of the loop when it comes to my son. I can’t wait until my daughter attends next year!
-J. Friedman (11/2015)

My son started here in the toddler room in 2011. The staff and administrators truly care about the kids. Once, my son was ill for a few days and hospitalized. The center’s director called me at home to check on him because she and the staff were concerned about him. My son is now 7 and in 1st grade and attends the before/aftercare as well as summer camp – he loves it! My daughter, soon to be 3, is so excited when it’s her day to “go to school and see Ms. Julie.” I highly recommend this childcare-preschool.

-D. Palermo (12/2015)

My son just started at Hillcrest Academy in September of 2013. He loves the school and the teachers. The program he is in keeps him engaged and challenged. I would definitely recommend Hillcrest to anyone looking for a preschool.

– T. Foster (5/2014)

I have nothing but great things to say about Hillcrest academy! Everyone who works there are great people who take great care of all the kids. I’ve had 2 of my kids in Hillcrest; my middle who started when she was 2, now she is 7, and my little guy who currently attends. I’ve had such a great experience here that I would highly recommend this daycare to anyone and everyone. I also love how quite a few teachers have been there for 20 plus years. They don’t have much of a turnaround in staff.

-C. Stauffer (9/2015)

The grounds here are awesome! The kind of stuff that I would have loved to have when I was a kid. To go along with that, they are very friendly, helpful and caring with our son. He can definitely be a challenge sometimes, and they have done a great job working with him (and us).

-D. Booth (11/2015)

Our son has attended Hillcrest Academy for almost two years. We looked at several day care centers before we decided on Hillcrest. We knew the moment we walked through the door this was where we wanted our son to grow. We felt at home there, and our gut instincts were right. Our son has been nurtured and loved from his very first day. We feel blessed to have such caring people teaching and taking care of our son.

-B. Meyer (5/2014)

Out of the three daycare programs we have been enrolled in, Hillcrest by far is superior. I have never been happier. The management here is competent and caring. All of the teachers have essentially become an extension of our family. They take the time to give each one of our kids the individual attention that they need and even after graduation are so excited to see them return for a visit. We have been to some hellacious daycares, but this place is all business when it comes to the safety of our kids and have proved It time and time again with class and sass. Hillcrest is the real deal.

-C. Martinez (10/2015)

My daughter started Hillcrest in September. She was very shy especially around kids. In just under 2 months she comes home telling me all about her friends and the dance parties they had. She loves her teacher Ms. Kim, and I adore Ms. Kim for all her hard work and dedication. Olivia is 3 and she teaches me songs and yoga poses, it’s so cute. She learned Stop, Drop and Roll last week and is teaching everyone. I could not be more pleased with Hillcrest. I feel so lucky to have found a wonderful school to start my daughter on her path to a bright future.

-J. Lepre (10/2015)

This is my sons’ second year at Hillcrest. I cannot say enough good things about the staff, and not just my sons’ teachers, but everyone that works there. There is a genuine concern amongst the staff that every child feels loved and safe and as a parent it puts my mind at ease. My son is always learning, both educationally and socially in a well structured environment. And above all, he is always happy there. Why go anywhere else.

-M. Mascola (9/2015)

Hillcrest is a great daycare. The teachers and staff are all wonderful, they are very caring with all the children. My daughter is in the baby room and it’s been a great experience, they are always doing cute projects, singing songs, and even teaching them sign language!!! I would recommend Hillcrest to any parent looking for a great daycare.

-K. Gonzalez (9/2015)

Hillcrest Academy has been such a wonderful place for my children. They not only teach from their hearts, they’ve thought me as a parent a thing or 2 on the inner teachings of education.

-M. Gomich (8/2015)

Hands down the best childcare around! Everyone is friendly and helpful. They treat each child as their own. As a first time mom it was difficult to leave my 6 month old with unfamiliar people but they come highly recommended so my transition back to work was put to ease. Thank you to the entire staff for all that you do!

-T. Ruby (10/2015)

My daughter started preschool at Hillcrest this year. I toured many other schools and I knew when I pulled up this was the place for us! Director Amy is so sweet and welcoming and her assistant Danielle is so helpful. Ms. Kim is a wonderful teacher. She teaches the kids Yoga and has so many fantastic approaches to educating the children. We look forward to many years of fun and education at Hillcrest.
