Our Philosophy

Hopewell Christian Preschool is a ministry of Hopewell United Methodist Church, which seeks to reach out to preschool children and their families. Nurturing the whole child with a monthly theme-based curriculum, our intent is to balance the teaching of ABC’s and bible stories through loving teachers that care about the hearts of children. Teachers works with children both as an individual and as a member of a group. Our goal is to nurture the growth of the preschool children through the use of art, stories, music, free play, teacher-led instruction and outdoor play. What is unique about us is our emphasis on including a faith-based component to our teaching which concentrates on the basics of the Christian faith; God, Jesus, the bible, loving, sharing and giving. This is done by using bible stories, Chapel Time, but most importantly through the example of loving teachers who share their own relationship with Christ as they teach and relate to the children and their families.
