Hillcrest Kids has been established to serve the children of the greater Bellingham area, ages one year through grade five and their parents. It is our purpose to foster growth and development of the whole child – physical, emotional, cognitive and spiritual – in an atmosphere of God’s great love.
Back in 1975, several members of Hillcrest Chapel had a growing desire to provide a quality childcare program for the families of Bellingham. Daycare was just emerging as a popular choice for early childhood education. Hillcrest Chapel wanted to give parents a safe, warm, loving environment for each child. They also wanted to provide a Christian school for all families regardless of their religious affiliation or background. Soon Hillcrest Daycare was established – a licensed child care center serving our community.
As the community continued to grow, Hillcrest Daycare grew with it. By the year 2000 we had increased our enrollment from just a few kids to over 150! Now Hillcrest Kids continues to serve families throughout Whatcom and Skagit counties. We’ve even added this website to continue to serve you better. What exciting new triumphs will we be adding to our history this year? Join us and find out!
