Preschool

We look forward to beginning our 2020-21 school year on Tuesday, September 8! A few simple reminders to kick off our best year yet:

  • Drop off your child(ren) at their designated age-level location (if you are unsure where this is, please inquire with your classroom teacher).
  • All adults, please wear a mask at all times.
  • You will pick up your chil(ren) at the same location as drop off.
  • Many hours of planning and execution have gone into making this start safe and efficient as possible. We ask for your patience and positive attitude as we adjust to this new school year model.

If you have any questions or your enrollment status has changed, please email HPS Enrollment Administrator Christine Estes, (christine.estes@hopechurchmemphis.com)

HOPE CHURCH PRESCHOOL

Our preschool's curriculum emphasizes hands-on, play-oriented learning. Our teachers encourage children to learn by doing. In the infant/toddler classes, babies learn to separate from their parents and have their first social interactions. The one-year olds become better at sharing and are exposed to art and literature.  Beginning with our two-year-old class, monthly units expose children to a variety of materials related to a theme. Specific goals and curriculum are established for each age group.

CONTACT OR TAKE A TOUR

If you would like to tour our program and register for the 2020-2021 school year, please email our Preschool director, Janie Brooks to schedule a tour on a Monday or Wednesday.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Our Memphis area preschool takes place in a clean, safe facility where your child can learn from a wealth of materials while also having fun and acting like a kid. Our varied curriculum provides many different kinds of experiences for your child in order to promote physical, social, emotional, cognitive and spiritual development. We offer plenty of time for your child to try new things and learn at his or her own pace. We also keep child/teacher ratios low so teachers can offer individualized attention.

TRANSITIONAL CLASS

Hope’s transitional class is a program specifically designed to meet the needs of students who have completed a four-year old program, yet are not quite ready for kindergarten. These children may have a late birthday that exceeds school cutoff or may need another year for social, emotional, intellectual or physical growth. The day is organized like a regular kindergarten class, but expands creative exploration to help the children develop confidence socially and academically. Due to the unique nature of this classroom, the teacher is able to develop more individualized plans based on each child’s ability. A personalized curriculum allows each child to move forward at their own pace fostering the confidence needed to succeed in kindergarten.
