our history

Hilltop School was founded in September 1968, under the sponsorship of West Congregational Church. Hilltop began with half-day Kindergarten and Preschool programs.

In 1977 the Hilltop committee became aware of the increasing numbers of working parents, and in 1978 Hilltop began providing full-day child care.

In 1980, a school-age program was added for children who attend Tilton or Silver Hill Elementary Schools for 1st and 2nd grade and need care before and after school.

In 2012, Hilltop became licensed to care for toddlers. One and two year olds full time, Monday- Friday 8:30-4pm.
