About HP Community

Highland Park Community Nursery School and Day Care Center, affectionately known as HP Community was founded in 1951 by Martha Struve Freeman to provide high-quality, licensed, early childhood education and care to children 2 to 5. We are committed to providing a safe, educational and nurturing environment where children feel safe, cared for and respected. In November, 2019 we relocated to our new building at 640 Ridge Road, Highland Park.

  • Children and families are nurtured and supported and diversity is celebrated.
  • Each child’s individual emotional, social, cognitive and physical development is fostered by a skilled and loving staff.
  • Play is valued and natural curiosity is encouraged.
  • Interpersonal relationships and collaboration are emphasized and seen as avenues for growth and trust.
