School Calendar

Hilltop’s school year begins the Tuesday after Labor Day and ends the first week of June. The preschool is closed during Kalamazoo Public Schools’ winter break and on selected legal and religious holidays. Students in both preschool and Wraparound may use their scheduled plan hours to attend Hilltop during spring break at no extra charge.

Program Placement

Teachers recognize children's varying degrees of ability, emotional independence, and social maturity; therefore ages listed next to programs are merely a guideline in determining program placement. Hilltop is licensed to serve children from the age 2 years, 9 months to 6 six.

Late Enrollment

Tuition shall be prorated for a child enrolling after the school year has begun.

Parent Involvement

We offer many opportunities for parent involvement from assisting in the classroom and on field trips, organizing special events, helping teachers prepare activities, to having a voice at meetings. Parents are welcome to drop in any time. Visitors are kindly requested to call in advance for an appointment.
