Preschool

Discover an inclusive, student-centered preschool community where exploration, collaboration, and kindness are encouraged.

We are excited to meet you and support your child’s journey into preschool at Hopkins Public Schools! At Hopkins, your child will discover an inclusive, student-centered community where empathy, collaboration, and kindness are encouraged. They will develop creativity, confidence, and strong social relationships through play-based exploration of academic concepts built around their interests. 

Hopkins Preschool sites are located at each of our elementary schools and Harley Hopkins Family Center in Hopkins.

Be a Part of our School Community — Enroll in Hopkins Preschools

Your Hopkins preschooler will be part of an inclusive school community that supports exploration of a broad range of meaningful play-based learning and relationship-building experiences. 

Student-Centered Curriculum

Our students are at the center of everything we do. When students feel heard, seen, and valued, they can do their very best work — that’s why love is one of our core values.

Our Reggio-Emilia inspired curriculum and physical spaces are designed to engage young minds and use their natural sense of discovery as a catalyst for deeper learning. Our nurturing teachers focus on your child’s academic and social-emotional success so they can reach their full potential.
