Dear Parents/Guardians and Visitors,
Welcome to the West Hill School Website. The West Hill School is a unique coeducational preschool for children 2 years 7 months to 5 years that is accredited by the Pennsylvania Association of Independent Schools (PAIS). Founded in 1966 and situated on over two beautiful acres, West Hill was built especially for young children. At West Hill, talented and dedicated staff members, enthusiastic children, involved parents/guardians, and a supportive community join forces to create a positive and innovative environment where children engage in joyful learning.The West Hill School offers pre-school age children a safe and nurturing environment that encourages a life-long celebration of learning. Through our rich and varied curriculum, balanced with play and multisensory academic instruction, the children explore and satisfy their curiosities while developing their cognitive, social/emotional, and physical skills. Children experience and practice the self-regulation skills of careful listening and focus and attention that promote school readiness. Through activities that reinforce the development of empathy and emotion management, children learn to build friendships and successful interpersonal relationships. It is our goal that each child progresses to kindergarten with the tools to achieve a balanced education that promotes self-confidence, joy of discovery, pride in accomplishment, and respect for differences in our school, our community, and our world.The West Hill staff and I believe that children grow and develop the most when there is a strong connection between the home and school. West Hill parents/guardians are outstanding in their support and encouragement of their children and their school. West Hill parents/guardians devote enormous time and energy to the school, serving as invaluable partners in their children’s education. They assist us in providing a range of activities and fund-raising projects to enrich and support the preschool program. Social events are scheduled regularly to continue to build a strong sense of community among the families.
