What Our Families are Saying

Parenting is the hardest job out there and I often question if I am doing the right things for my girls…Hillcrest is not one of those questions.

J. Leean

Bonnie and the entire staff have been wonderful – they are an amazing group of people who genuinely care about the children as if they were their own. We couldn’t be more grateful to be a part of the Hillcrest family!

The Ericsons

Visiting Hillcrest was a life-changing moment. We felt an instant connection to the staff, the children were happy and engaged, and we loved their structure and curriculum. We feel blessed to be a Hillcrest family.
