“I observed interactions that were calm, authentic, and totally embedded in the program structure and routine. I have been studying Emergent Curriculum for years. Seeing your program was affirming to my philosophy and strengthens my resolve to keep helping my students move in this direction. I was impressed by how natural and home-like the environment is, the collaboration among the faculty, and the mentoring systems that support teacher development. Hilltop is a true Emergent program!“

Hilltop Inquiry Visits
Join us for a multi-day visit to Hilltop to see child-centered and reflective practice in action, explore proven models for supporting responsive curriculum in your own programs, and talk directly with program leaders and educators from Hilltop’s classrooms. Participants will discuss practical strategies for supporting educators and developing structures that enhance reflection and uphold program values.
An Inquiry Visit is a customized one-on-one opportunity for your organization to specifically project/problem solve how this work could be applied in their own organization’s context.
These visits are charged at a hourly rate and a per-participant food/materials fee. Prices vary and are adjusted based on specific objectives of each organization and total number of participants but generally start at $2000 for a two-day visit. For a detailed quote, please contact us directly.
