Our Program

At Hope Waukee Children’s Center, we provide a nurturing, faith-based and educational environment for children ages 2-6. Our program offers excellent teacher-to-child ratios and Bible-based, Christ-centered curriculum.

Monday – Friday, 7:00 am – 5:30 pm
*A morning and afternoon snack, and hot lunch are provided.

Our Classrooms

Children at Hope Waukee Children’s Center engage in developmentally appropriate learning activities to promote academic readiness, social, emotional, physical and spiritual skills.

We use the Creative Curriculum in all of our classrooms. The Creative Curriculum balances both teacher-directed and child-initiated learning, with an emphasis on children's learning styles and building on their strengths and interests.

In our preschool classrooms, we use “Handwriting without Tears,” which aims to make legible and fluent handwriting a skill that students can master easily.

This dynamic curriculum, along with teaching strategies and compelling lessons, make it easy for children to learn!

Parental Involvement

Our parents are truly viewed as an integral part of our program. We invite parents to come and help with our special classroom celebrations and field trips. We have an Open House in the fall and a Christmas Program in the winter for the entire family, plus a fun Graduation Celebration for the Pre-K students in May.

Our teachers understand how important clear and consistent communication is with all parents. Each teacher provides a weekly newsletter, which describes the planned areas of interest throughout the week. This newsletter provides parents with specific "clues" about songs, stories, and other exciting discoveries that have occurred during your child’s busy week.
