Kindergarten Information

Your child is unique. Your family's needs are unique.

Hopkins has two kindergarten options, All-Day Kindergarten and XinXing Academy Chinese Immersion. Our kindergarten options focus on the development of the child as a whole person. We strive to provide early and appropriate opportunities in an integrated curriculum. Our content focuses on the social, emotional, intellectual, and physical growth of the individual child, with equal consideration for each of those needs. Kindergarten is an important transition year for children. The Hopkins kindergarten program is infused with STEM, Spanish instruction, technology, and amazing teachers.
