Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me..."

Matthew 19:14

Welcome to Hillside Bethel Christian School!  Our preschool was established in 1986 and has been in continuous operation ever since. As an integral part of Hillside Bethel Ministries, our preschool is proud to be a Christian education program available to our community. Our goal is for every child to be shown the love of God through our instruction and curriculum. Hillside Bethel Christian School is committed to making your child's first school experience a safe, happy and memorable one and to be the bridge between home and kindergarten.

Please note:  Preschool classes are for 3- and 4-year-old students.  Students in all Pre-K classes are expected to be able to completely potty independently. This policy is in place because these classrooms are operated in true preschool classroom settings.  While our program does not offer potty training, we understand accidents happen and we gladly support our students where they are at in their development.

Hours of Operation

Monday - Friday

Our preschool educational program is in session Monday-Friday, 8:30 AM 11:30 AM (September-May).  However, we are open from 6:00 AM to 5:30 PM for additional childcare and educational opportunities.  Inquire about our preschool only and all-day enrollment options.

Hillside Bethel Christian School also offers a summer program (June-August)
