Preschool

The Hillsdale Christian Academy Preschool is where our youngest students discover, learn, and grow spiritually, physically, socially, and academically. HCA believes all children are a gift from God and a unique creation made in His image. Therefore, every child is an individual with his or her own rate of growth and maturity.

What Separates Us

Chapel 2

 Spiritual Growth – Students have chapel once a week with various speakers from our staff and faculty. This time of singing, teaching and interaction around the Word of God gives another outlet for students to hear truths to help them learn and grow in the Lord.

Creative Play in Preschool

Creative Play – Little learners learn best through play. Through play, children learn to create connections with others, to share, negotiate and resolve conflicts. This is incorporated into the daily curriculum where students are encouraged to role play in their daily center time.

Our Curriculum

In our program, children learn through intentional instruction and independent, play-based learning that incorporates God’s word and his love for them. Hillsdale Christian Academy aims to provide a loving and nurturing Christian environment that will foster a love for God and learning. Daily prayer and Bible lessons encourage each child’s spiritual growth. We encourage kids to be kids through indoor and outdoor play every day.

Core Subjects

Hillsdale Christian Academy’s preschool teaches core subjects to prepare your child for success: Bible class, phonics, reading, writing, mathematics, science, social studies, music, and art.

Preschool teachers create a predictable structure provided by daily and weekly schedules that enable children to know what to expect and understand what is expected of them. And they create a classroom community that helps children think positively about school and learn from each other.

Students in preschool are taught solid phonics foundations, and develop their reading and writing skills. They continue to build a strong foundation for success with math, science, and social studies. Our students also develop their self-expression and creativity through art and music.

Our Philosophy

Luke 2:52 reads, “And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.” This “whole-body” endeavor of educating and encouraging your child to greatness is a direct result of the example set up for us in the Word of God. What we do at HCA will reflect each of these components. Wisdom: Knowledge that is applied to life’s circumstances. Stature: Healthy and growing bodies that are respected by others and ourselves. Favor with God: Knowing who God is and how your child can have a relationship with Him. Favor with Man: Getting along with one another in love.

VPK

Voluntary Prekindergarten or VPK gives children a jump start by preparing them for school and enhancing their pre-reading, pre-math, language, and social skills. By developing these skills at an early age, children are more likely to be successful in school. With Hillsdale Christian Academy, our VPK classes offer high-quality programs that include high literacy standards, developmentally appropriate curricula, manageable class sizes, and qualified teachers.
