Our Hilo Location

Our Hilo Director

Our Hilo Preschool is conveniently located in downtown Hilo, at 317 Lehua Street. JumpStart Hilo has two spaces; a separate 2’s classroom and combined 3 and 4-year-old classroom. We are a stand alone building with a large fenced play ground; complete with play structures and gardening area. Our family style environment eases the transition and helps children feel comfortable in their learning space.
