A place for you



Our preschool's curriculum emphasizes hands-on, play-oriented learning. Our teachers encourage children to learn by doing through play. 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.


If you would like to tour our program and register for the 2023-2024 school year, please email our HPS Enrollment Administrator Christine Estes, christine.estes@hopechurchmemphis.com, or call 901-844-4673 to schedule a tour.


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.

Kids in Preschool


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.
