For more than 30 years, the Hopkinton Christian Preschool has focused on the needs of students by offering a Christian-based and cognitively challenging program for children 2.9-5 years-old in a safe, creative, and nurturing environment.
Our low child to teacher ratio allows our teachers to develop close bonds with children and observe and respond to their interests, strengths, and needs.
Our curriculum adheres to the federal Guidelines for Kindergarten Readiness and the Guidelines for Preschool Learning Experiences.
Our Daily Routines
During morning meeting we focus on calendar, phonological awareness and math skill building. We have a letter of the week that is introduced and a story is read based on one of our thematic units. Rotating math stations are set up within the classroom to improve number recognition, problem solving, and number sense. After snack and learning centers we clean up before a lesson and art or music and movement.
HCP ends the day with gross motor activities such as playing outside on our playground or inside in our large gymnasium.
All the classrooms have multiple different areas for creative play, quiet reading, as well as a creation station for painting. Math and science stations are set up according to our monthly thematic units and different curriculum. There is a large rug for circle time and a calendar to discuss days of the week, the seasons, and weather. Toys and manipulatives are rotated throughout the classrooms monthly.
We also have a shared space for a story room with an interactive science center where children can begin exploring using magnifiers and fossils. There is a sand/water/rice table for sensory play and a train table for social play.
HCP does not discriminate in admission or in providing services to children and their families on the basis of race, religion, cultural heritage, political beliefs, national origin, disability, marital status or sexual orientation.
