Thank you for your interest in HopeMark Preschool! Established in 1971 as a community outreach project between St. Mark’s Episcopalian and Hope United Church of Christ, we have been educating the children of St. Louis Hills and surrounding communities for almost 50 years! We are located in the heart of St. Louis Hills, on the Southeast corner of Francis Park. Our school is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit corporation, governed by a board of directors, and operates in compliance with the state of Missouri Department of Health and Human Services childcare regulations. We are a peanut and tree nut free facility, and are happy to work with parents to accommodate children with other food allergies in order to provide a safe and inclusive school experience. HopeMark Preschool admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions and other school-administered programs.

Your Best Option for Early Childhood Education and Care

HopeMark Preschool believes in fostering emotional intelligence while preparing your child for Kindergarten, socially, emotionally, cognitively and physically.  Our certified staff has readied thousands of children, and hope to do the same for your child. Come visit us and you’ll see why so many children proudly say “I’m a HopeMark Kid!

Play Based Learning

At HopeMark, we believe that children learn best through play.  We strive to give our children a safe and supportive environment to explore, question and experiment.  It is our goal that children will emerge from their time at HopeMark with the emotional intelligence skills (self-confidence, awareness and control, the ability to listen, wait ones turn, cooperate, share and work with others) and the academic foundation that will enrich their experience in Kindergarten and beyond

Our School

Located on the top floor of Hope United Church of Church of Christ, we have two large, fully equipped and self-contained classrooms. Our outdoor playground is equipped with commercial grade play structures, soft surface turf, and nature exploration walkway. We also have an indoor gymnasium to allow for large motor activity on inclement weather days.
