HopeMark Preschool



We have been cultivating kind, confident, and prepared HopeMark Kids since 1971!

Come see why HopeMark is your best option for Early Childhood Education and Care in South City.

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.

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.
