Hope Preschool Ministries' mission is to promote the maximum social development of the preschool child along with the child's physical development and emotional maturity in a Christian environment.
Each child is offered the benefit of learning through quiet and active experiences, child-selected and teacher-determined activities, and both individual and group activities. Such learning prepares the child for further education and development and begins to instill some of the values consistent with the Christian community.
