Hope & Play preschool history

     We started in 1994 as a humble Mom's Morning out program, that ran successfully for three years.  We soon evolved into a part time preschool focused on well rounded child development and a family atmosphere.  We have been serving the surrounding communities ever since.

    We take pride in delivering a high quality, parent friendly, Christian program for all of our students regardless of denomination and faith background.  Our philosophy is to nurture children to grow socially and academically in a loving environment. We take great pride in preparing them for their first steps into elementary school and all of their years of learning ahead of them.  May God Bless them always!

We do offer a "Wrap Around" that is only for our M-F VPK class up till 2 pm. We are offering for the 2022-2023 school year a before/after option that is 8 am-5 pm.  This option is for all ages.

Absolutely!! We hold monthly parent volunteer meetings where we discuss upcoming events that we need help with.  We also have a community helper week where we invite parents to come in and share what they do to help our community.
