What previous parents have said about Hope Ridge Preschool;


“The teachers are incredibly thoughtful.  You can tell they truly care for your child and want nothing more than for them to enjoy learning.”

“….The teachers are WONDERFUL, as are the assistants.  The entire atmosphere of the preschool is so warm, welcoming and friendly.  I feel there is a very good balance of academics and stressing the importance of socialization and teaching the children how to “do school” in order to prepare them for kindergarten….”

“I had heard great word-of-mouth, we liked the tour before our initial child attended Hope Ridge.  Our first child is succeeding in 1st grade, our middle child is excelling at Hope Ridge, more than ready for Kindergarten, and we plan on having our youngest attend Hope Ridge when old enough.  We are very pleased with Hope Ridge, and continue to praise the program to other families.  Thank you.”

“I love everyone that works there.  Everyone is so friendly and caring.  They made the school transition so easy for us as a family.  The curriculum is awesome and the extra programs are fantastic.  Picking Hope Ridge for preschool has been the best decision that we made for our daughter.”

“I’m very pleased with Hope Ridge Preschool.  Ms son loves going to school each day…”
