Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based

Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

Our teachers create a safe, caring and nurturing learning experience. Our teachers have a genuine love for young children and their families. Our environment is designed so that each child becomes aware that he or she is a unique and important individual, created by God. We feel the development of self-esteem and confidence is necessary to build a positive relationship toward self and others.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

New Hope Preschool is an ongoing ministry of New Hope Presbyterian Church providing early childhood education for children that are 2 years and 9 months up to 5 years of age. We offer 1/2 day and extended day classes Mondayt through Friday from September through May. We are a parent cooperative program with parents assisting the teachers in the classroom on a scheduled basis. At New Hope we believe that children learn best when they are in an environment where they feel safe and loved. Our program integrates all learning styles with an understanding of each child's stage in social, cognitive and physical development.

A Typical Day

Your child will grow in all areas of development through math discovery, science & nature, creative arts/dramatic play, music & movement, fine/gross motor skill development, multi-cultural activities, community awareness, self-help, independence & social skills, purposeful free play, computers & library area, indoor gross motor room & outdoor play area, monthly pastor time and extended day options.
