about us

from our staff

Hope 4 Kids Preschool & Infant/Toddler Center is a fabulous, nature-centered program operating on-site at the former meeting location of Hope Community Church.  Hope 4 Kids is also an Outdoor Classroom Demonstration Site.
As you'll see from our staff pages below, we've hired an amazing team of professional, qualified individuals to care for and love your child.  To review each staff member's autobiography, click "...more" under each person's position or email address.
