About the Provider

Description: Our Mission: Hope Community Preschool exists to give preschool students the foundation to learn mentally, physically, emotionally and socially, through age appropriate lessons and experiences in a loving and caring Christian environment. Hope Family Ministries enhance the preschool experience by offering extended hours and enriching experiences for body, mind, and soul.

Our Philosophy: We strive to offer programs which can be uniquely pieced together by each family to meet their needs. One family may choose a single Tuesday /Thursday preschool class to introduce their child to the school environment. Another may need a longer span of activities for their child and may choose to begin with a “Let's Play Today" fitness program, then Lunch Bunch, followed by an afternoon preschool class. At Hope you self design your program to meet your family’s needs.

Additional Information: MSDE-Approved Education Program.

Hello Jul 26, 2019
I have used this provider for more than 6 months

The program itself has potential, but the nasty attitude and fake personality of the director, Kathy Petrill, is it’s biggest downfall.
