In Hopkins Preschools, our students are at the center of everything we do. When students feel heard, seen, and valued, they can do their very best work - that's why love is one of our core values.

Your child will discover an inclusive preschool community where empathy, collaboration, and kindness are encouraged. Children will develop creativity, confidence, and strong social relationships through play-based exploration of concepts built around their interests.
