Early Childhood Education for Children: Offering an Early Start to Achievement

The early years of a child's life are the most precious time for personal and educational development – minds and fundamental traits are molded and shaped.  This most formative time can be particularly challenging to children in our community that are underserved in education resources.  Social and economic conditions combined with having special needs can negatively impact early growth and development.

 

The HOPE Center's Early Childhood Program is committed to providing the highest, most personalized level of education and training possible to children from all backgrounds.  HOPE Center programs work to counter such childhood impediments, endeavoring to provide each child with the skills and education needed to have a long, fulfilling life.  Our conviction is that each child must be treated and nurtured as an individual with individual needs. 

The HOPE Center's programs are uniquely designed to meet the distinct needs of our students.  In addition to general education, the Center provides a special needs preschool for children who have been identified with delays in areas of speech and behavior.  We also offer support to bilingual or multicultural children with an experiential and language-based curriculum.  One of our most innovative programs is our gifted program for preschool students and kindergarteners.

HOPE Academy Gifted Preschool/Kindergarten

What Does "Gifted" Mean, and Is That Your Child?  Knowing your child is different may seem scary.  But it doesn't have to be.  Gifted children who are not challenged or given the proper opportunity to develop their full capabilities may show negative behaviors, such as constant daydreaming, challenging authority and being disruptive.  However, giftedness also means that your child has exceptional potential and can achieve great things if given the proper education.

How We Support Gifted Students?

HOPE Academy has studied the development of gifted children for decades.  We know that the earlier these kids are identified, the sooner we can help them reach their potential.  We partner with the Gifted Development Center to assess and identify gifted and talented children as young as three years old.

 

  • Nearly 90% of parents who suspect their child may be gifted are correct!

  • Gifted children, like all kids, need the right environment to flourish and develop their skills.  HOPE Center is the place where this happens!
