How can HILLTOP Early Childhood SERVICES help you and your program?Our consulting services can be as short as a few hours, or, as has happened with more than one client, repeat projects have lead to ongoing every week, month, or other intervals for years. If you want to improve the quality of your program, or if you have received less than wonderful evaluations from funders or licensing/regulatory agencies and need to improve one or more aspects of your program, we can help you. Starting a new program or thinking of it?
