Fabulous Teachers!

The teachers are child-focused, creative, organized, and provide a secure, fun, structured, and age-appropriate environment.

Our child loves coming to the preschool!

For the teachers, friends, playing, learning, crafts, songs, and celebrations.

Developmentally appropriate programming

My son was well prepared for kindergarten both academically and socially.

The teachers are fabulous!

They are knowledgeable, nurturing, and wonderful to work with parents.

We love….

... the teachers, the planned lessons, the idea of the "Little House" and "Big House", and the drop-off/pick-up service

Just the right fit

My initial phone call and subsequent open house meeting just felt like the right fit.  The teachers really seem to love what they do.

Enrolling your two year old in our Tuesday and Thursday morning class will open up your child’s world to a multitude of adventures! Children will have the opportunity to learn, grow, and develop through a variety of activities.
They will be introduced to different play centers as they interact with their friends and are guided by nurturing teachers in a safe, fun-filled environment. Your child’s early educational experience will include listening to stories, singing songs, engaging in creative movement, creating art projects, and playing in an outdoor space designed especially for our youngest students.

Tuesday & Thursdays, 9:00-11:30 (Sept-Dec),  9:00-12:00 (Jan-May)

Your child will look forward to meeting their friends and teachers for our classes on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Theme based concepts are introduced during circle time through stories, toys, games, songs, and dance.  Important social skills such as patience, taking turns, cooperation, using good manners, and showing respect for others are incorporated throughout the day. Hands-on science activities and nature study help children learn about the world around them.  Outdoor play and nature walks are an important part of the daily routine.

During playtime, children interact with friends and explore ever-changing items in the discover table, and interact with a large variety of building materials and manipulatives to create with an assortment of media.

We are pleased to offer 3 year old children wishing to have longer days the option of enrolling in our Extended Day Program.

Extended Day:  Monday/Wednesday/Friday 9:00-3:00 p.m.

Your child will be well prepared to enter kindergarten upon completion of our program. The children meet five days a week and are immersed in various themes throughout the year. Children are introduced to shapes, colors, numbers and letters in a developmentally appropriate manner. Stories, music, and art are intertwined throughout the daily routine as children work with friends and teachers in large and small group activities. Self-directed and teacher-initiated activities, along with outside playground time and snack time, round out the preschool day.

Our author of the month, parent volunteers, soccer program, cooking activities, nature programs, and walks offer wonderful learning opportunities for our children.

Information for Parents

We appreciate all feedback we receive from Parents!

“I have been touring lots of preschools in the area trying to find the right fit for my child. I want you to know… no other preschool was as welcoming as you, no other preschool did I see teachers as actively engaged in their students, no other preschool did I see student’s interest make an impact in the classroom, no other preschool has as much space for children to explore and learn. For these reasons and more I am choosing Fox Hill for my child.”

Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback, whether positive or negative, as we work to make Fox Hill Preschool better every day!
