Welcome!

The Hillsborough High School Lil' Raiders Preschool/Nursery Program is open to all Hillsborough residents ages 3-5 years old. Students must be three years old by January 31, 2022. Preschool will run Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 8:45-12:15 November through May. The entire cost for the program is $300.* This covers daily snacks and all materials for the program. Preschool spots available for each session are determined by high school enrollment in the course. Completed applications for the preschool are dated and kept on file in the order in which they are received.

The preschool child/nursery class is a 10 credit, double period elective for Hillsborough High School juniors and seniors who are interested in such career fields as education, therapy, child psychology, and social services, or as a basis for learning good parenting skills for future family life. The high school students spend the first semester studying the theory behind the emotional, physical, and social development of preschool children. During the second semester, the students apply their knowledge in the classroom with the preschool students by planning, organizing and supervising the program. The Preschool Program has been in operation since 1971.
