Hillcrest Recreation for Preschoolers is a preschool recreation program for children ages 2 1/2 to 5 years held at Hillcrest Recreation Center. The program runs on a school year calendar from mid September to mid May.
Our emphasis is placed on providing a warm and nurturing environment along with giving emotional support and encouragement needed to grow. We work on separation from parent(s) as well as encouraging independence, making friends, and learning to use their words to express their wants and needs. Our daily activities include, free time, story time, art projects, weekly show'n'tell, snack, and use of the gymnasium or outdoor playground. These activities are provided to encourage language, cognitive, gross motor, fine motor, and social skills. The program is developed with the understanding that each child is unique and therefor develops at his or her own pace.
All children must be potty trained.
