About the H.O.P.E. Center
The H.O.P.E. Center is designed as a fully integrated preschool, which also provides before and after school care. Our highly trained and committed teachers and assistants are dedicated to enhancing the social experience for all children, offering various activities such as board games, arts & crafts, outside play and a time for ‘homework help.’ Children are encouraged to interact with one another to promote social awareness and greater independence.

What We Believe
Our Mission is to provide quality care to all children, in a loving, nurturing, learning enriched environment.
Our Purpose is to engage children meaningfully and develop basic skills in the areas of communication, appropriate behavior, play, socialization, while establishing developmentally appropriate rates of learning. Engagement refers to the amount of time children spend interacting with the environment in a way that is appropriate for their age, skills, and surroundings. Previous research has shown that when engagement is promoted in a group environment, children are more likely to participate in developmentally appropriate activities (Dunst, McWilliam, & Holbert, 1996).
Our Approach is to provide positive praise and reinforce desirable behavior and learning, using a behavior analytic framework, which results in increasing the quality of every child’s social and educational experience.
Our Team of highly qualified teachers, assistants, and behavior analysts is dedicated to enhancing the lives of all children.
