Welcome to
Hilltop Early Learning Academy

At Hilltop, your child’s future is important to us. Our teachers are experienced experts and work with each child to inspire and encourage them to reach their potential academically, socially, and spiritually. Every child at Hilltop is loved and cared for in an environment that is invested in helping them become caring, thoughtful learners. They are taught that they are active participants in their learning and are given time and space to construct their understanding.

Unique Learning Styles

We make sure our early education program consists of both indoor and outdoor activities, alternating active and quiet play, and a balance of child-directed and teacher-directed learning time. One of the elements that makes Hilltop unique is our developmentally appropriate curriculum, structured to meet the individual needs of each child. Our staff accomplishes this with a balance of child/teacher–directed learning times, a hands–on approach to learning, and Christian faith and values.

Outstanding Staff

Our staff has gone through a rigorous interview and background check process, completed infant/child CPR and first aid training, receive ongoing child development training and are Oregon State Certified. But, we don’t just stop there, because a license, certificate or degree does not guarantee a great teacher. Our teaching staff must also demonstrate a loving and nurturing heart AND a “call” to work with young children. We take pride in our teachers understanding the special nuances of Love and Logic for classroom management and the developmental needs of your child.
