Hope Children Center

Faith-based environment for children before & after school.

Our goal is to encourage children to be children! To welcome them to be a part of a loving and safe community. We value character education and we know it’s importance.  But even more than that we care about kids; about who they are now and who they are becoming.  We have 3 BIG values we want every kid to know in our program.  Treat Others Right, Make Smart Decisions, & Maximize Their Potential.

In this setting the children will play and practice their socio-emotional skills in a safe and engaging environment. The teacher’s have the Core Essential curriculum available to utilize in the classroom. This curriculum is centered around four “mile markers” in guiding character education and culture change in our world. Here is an example:
