Our objective is to create a safe, healthy, and nurturing environment where children come first and have the chance to grow developmentally, socially, physically, and emotionally.

Educating Young Children For Over 70 Years

​​​​​​​​​Mountain Hill School is the longest continually operating preschool in our area, and we have been teaching and caring for children since 1949. The school is privately owned and is situated on an expansive, park-like property in Middletown, New Jersey. We offer a nurturing and safe environment for children ages 2½ years through Kindergarten. Our programs include half-day preschool classes as well as full-day Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten programs.

We believe that children learn best by doing; the more senses involved, the better the learning experience for your child. When the children's "hands are on", their "minds are on" too. We offer differentiated instruction because we realize that not all children learn the same way, and it allows us to build upon each child's strengths and provide extra support where needed. We believe in "teachable moments" throughout our day in order to make learning as meaningful as possible.

Our objective is to create a special environment where children come first and have the chance to grow developmentally, socially, physically, and emotionally. Our priority is to instill in children a love of learning and the realization that school is fun! The Mountain Hill School is unique. We pride ourselves on helping each child reach their maximum potential, and we encourage you to visit our school and take a private tour of our exceptional campus.
