Little Mountain Preschool is an Oregon State Certified in-home preschool located near Fern Ridge Lake in Eugene, Oregon started by Jen & Noah Hill in the summer of 2019. Their rural property on the outskirts of Eugene gave their family the opportunity to explore the outdoors while nurturing compassion through gardening and caring for animals. They now serve up to 12 children each day with their indoor classroom, nine chickens, expansive garden, and large outdoor playspace.
Jen Hill has been devoted to working with children and their families for over 15 years. She has a Masters of Arts in Education from Lewis & Clark College and holds multiple subject teaching credentials in Oregon and California. Jen began working with children through Multnomah County’s Outdoor School, and continues to be inspired by the learning found in nature. She has worked with students from preschool to high school, and believes that developing a love of learning through play and exploration is the most important thing we can do for young children.
