Loving children since 1989


Mount Hope Children’s Center Philosophy

The Mount Hope Children’s Center is an outreach ministry of the Mount Hope United Methodist Church.  Founded in 1989, the Center’s philosophy is to provide a Christian learning environment for young children in our community.  The Center provides early childhood learning experiences for children from ages 31 months until they are ready for kindergarten. The Center’s objective is to offer a safe Christian environment staffed by qualified professional educators. We aim to nurture children’s development through socializing experiences and learning through play.


About our Center

Our early childhood curriculum is developmentally appropriate, providing for all areas of a child’s development: physical, emotional, social, and intellectual, through an integrated approach to learning, allowing each child to progress at their own pace. Using our teacher’s curriculum, we emphasize learning as an interactive and creative process.  Our teachers prepare the environment for the children to learn through active exploration and interaction with adults, other children, and materials.  A variety of activities and materials are available including opportunities for arts and crafts, block building, manipulatives, water play, books, reading readiness, writing, science, food experiences, dramatic play, songs, outdoor play, and much more.
