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 to kindergarten from a variety of culturally diverse backgrounds and under-served families such as those caring for foster children.


Our Philosophy Statement: At Hope 4 Kids we believe that: * children learn best through play; * children's work is their play; * lifelong lessons, relationships, skills, characteristics, beliefs, and strategies about life are developed in the early years through a child's experiences with his or her environment, family, peers, leaders, community, school, nature and play; * a child should be allowed to fully develop his or her own agenda using free choice, facilitated by experienced, quality, and highly-educated staff committed to the child's future; * a child's chance at a healthy, positive, productive, creative future is directly related to how often he or she as a child was permitted to explore ideas outside the box, take risks, create without the fear of judgment, think for him/herself, freely move his/her body, encounter sensory experiences (i.e., going barefoot in the mud, singing in the rain, painting anything and everything, etc.), use language in creative and unconventional ways, and develop meaningful relationships with all children and adults; and * it is critical for a child to know he or she is important, unconditionally loved, cared for, valued, and has a crucial place in this world that nobody else can fulfill.
