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.
Miss Amber Director I’m grateful to have the opportunity of being the Director here at Hillsborough Preschool. Early childhood education has always been my passion. I earned my B.A degree in Child Development, emphasis in Elementary Education. I’ve always aspired to work with young 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!
Miss Adi Yellow Room Teacher (Toddlers) I am 22 years old and currently finishing my B.A in Early Childhood Education. I have been working with children for 5 years, ranging from nannying to working in a home daycare center. Being able to watch children grow as both students and individuals is truly rewarding, especially knowing that you are forever going to be a part of their most precious childhood memories. Nothing makes my day better than receiving a warm hug with a huge smile from one of my students.
