Early Childhood & Preschool Programs

Early childhood is an important time of development for our youngest learners. We understand how important the early years are, and support families with both Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) classes and events, and three preschool options. We are here to help you navigate parenting during the early years and help you build the foundation for your child's love of learning and school readiness. Welcome to Hopkins Early Childhood Programs — you belong in Hopkins!
