Preschool Mission

Good Hope Preschool’s mission is to introduce children to Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, through a Christian-based program aimed at balancing development in the following areas: social/emotional, physical, cognitive, language, and spiritual.

Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me but the one who sent me.” Mark 9:37

SCHEDULE

Preschool begins on Tuesday after Labor Day and ends on Wednesday prior to Memorial Day. We will follow the Wake County School traditional calendar observing all Wake County School holidays and workdays. You will find Good Hope Preschool in the Children’s Building, the building to the right of the Family Life Center (FLC).

All classes meet from 9:00am – 12:00 noon.

CURRICULUM

The most important goal of our curriculum is to help children become self confident, inquisitive, enthusiastic learners. This means encouraging them to be active and creative explorers who are not afraid to try out their own thoughts. We are teaching children how to learn, not just in preschool, but also all through their lives. We are allowing them to learn at their own pace and in ways that are best for them. We are giving them good habits and attitudes, particularly a positive sense of themselves.

A TYPICAL DAY

Each of our classrooms has one teacher and one assistant. Each day, children will be involved in free play, circle time, centers, snack time, and outdoor play. Regularly, they will be participating in chapel, music movement, library, science explorations, and sand and water play. Your child’s morning will be packed with stories, songs, movement, learning and play. Play enables us to achieve the key goals of our early childhood curriculum, The Creative Curriculum. Play is the work of young children!
