vision statement

To be a place where teachers want to work, families seek us out, and children never want to leave.

program dna

Hope 4 Kids is a high-quality, nature-based, God-centered early childhood learning community:
 
  • where teachers are leaders and have the freedom to self-reflect and inspire creativity;
  • where children are innovative, critical thinkers with an uninhibited sense of wonder; and
  • where families partner with us in our who, what, and why with mutual trust and transparency.

mission statement

We are a faith-based, nature-centered quality program partnering with your family to help your child reach his or her full potential in relationships, kindergarten, the community and life.

We partner with families with children birth through kindergarten from a variety of culturally diverse backgrounds and under-served families such as those caring for foster and adopted children.  Our goals are to prepare and equip children and families with tools and experiences through an innovative program that:
 
  • offers a safe, loving, nurturing, culturally relevant, supportive program for children and their families; 
  • offers developmentally appropriate and culturally sensitive experiences in all six domains (physical, cognitive, creative, emotional, social, language);
  • provides opportunities to develop self-worth and self-esteem;
  • offers opportunities to develop Biblical character traits such as love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness, and self-control;
  • employs exceptionally trained and qualified teachers;
  • makes community support available on a wide-range of topics to meet the needs of children in our program; and
  • offers opportunities for enrolled families to network and receive support from other families in the area.
