The Hill Preschool, the oldest preschool on Capitol Hill, began as a play group in one family’s home. It was incorporated in 1972 and licensed by the District of Columbia. We have been housed in the Washington City Church of the Brethren since 1979.
The Hill Preschool is committed to providing high quality care and education. We focus on the whole child and support the development of social-emotional, language, cognitive, and physical skills.
We believe that young children learn best through play. Our school’s approach to care and education is closely aligned with current educational theory that supports the importance of children engaging in hands-on learning. Young children gain knowledge of the world and develop competence across learning domains when given the opportunity to actively explore.
The Hill Preschool follows the Creative Curriculum. The Creative Curriculum is a research-based curriculum that carefully considers the latest theory on child development and how children learn.
Our learning environments include our classrooms, playground, and the larger community. Community resources, including local parks and museums, are an integral part of our curriculum.

Who you serve:
Our philosophy is that children learn through play and socialization. Using characteristics of the Creative Curriculum and theme-based instruction, the children are introduced to and experience many aspects of learning. The focus is on the whole child, which means that the children will be given opportunities that allow for growth in all areas of development (social/emotional, physical, cognitive and language).
