About Us

About Us:

Established in 1966, University Hill Preschool (U-Hill) is a licensed non-profit preschool. We offer a play-based program, which primarily follows the Reggio Emilia approach to teaching, but includes specific activities of the Montessori school as well, referred to as Exercises of Practical Life. Above all, our teachers’ primary aim is to foster your child’s healthy self-image, instill confidence, encourage empathy and teach positive communication skills during your child’s formative years.

Our program operates on four developmental areas: social, emotional, fine/gross motor skills and cognitive development. These areas are refined through the children’s exploration of science, math, drama and literature as applied to themed class projects in a play-based manner.
