Lacy Bonner- Founder I opened Hillsborough Preschool in the summer of 1999. After graduating from college with a degree in education, I taught second grade for two years in the public school system. After two years of teaching, my dream of opening a quality preschool came true. With the belief that all children can and want to learn, Hillsborough created an academic preschool that applies its curriculum developmentally. It is a wonderful mixture of learning through creative play, manipulative, technology, and of course a wonderful staff. I have been married for 18 years and have three beautiful children.

I love all the children here, and the excitement they bring to our school each day. I believe children are capable of great things, the sky’s the limit!
