Hope Chapel Preschool

We believe that a child's work is his play and that children learn best by doing. HCP students are given several opportunities to play both child-directed and teacher-directed, both by using their fine motor skills and large motor skills. We provide these opportunities in our classrooms, outdoor playground and indoor play gym. In addition, instead of off-site field trips, HCP provides On-Site Learning Specials to enrich our students learning experiences.


HCP Curriculum

Here at HCP, we use a curriculum that is called "High Reach Learning Curriculum".  It is a Play Based, Teacher Directed curriculum.  We believe children learn best by structured and unstructured "play" and opportunities where, while teacher directed, still allow for the child to explore.  All classes follow a month theme outlined by the curriculum in addition to monthly letters, numbers, colors, and shapes. 

 

We have also added "Letter Land" to our curriculum this year. "Letterland is a unique, phonics-based approach to teaching reading, writing and spelling to 3-8 year olds. The Letterland characters transform plain black letter shapes into child-friendly pictograms and they all live in an imaginary place called Letterland.  Simple stories about the Letterland characters, explain the full range of dry phonics facts so that children are motivated to listen, to think and to learn. These stories explain letter sounds & shapes, allowing children to progress quickly to word building, reading and writing."


HCP Music Class

Once a week our 3's, 4's, and TK get to have music class with a former WCPSS Teacher.  They learn various songs and instruments and love to show off what they learn at our Parent Music Days and our Christmas Program


HCP Learning Specials

HCP provides monthly Learning Specials that go along with our curriculum monthly themes.   We average two Learning Specials each month, and each is located on site.  Some examples of our Learning Specials Apex Firefighters, Cary Police Officer and Canine, Great Harvest Bread Company, Amazing Athletes, and NC Science Museum.


HCP Chapel

Each week our 3's, 4's, and TK classes have Chapel.  Our Chapel includes songs and movement, a Bible Story, and a memory verse.  The three basic truths we teach are:

 

  • God made you
  • God loves you
  • Jesus wants to be your forever friend
