Our Program at New Hope Preschool in Galt, California

A Christ-Centered Environment

image10

New Hope Preschool believes that the early years of life are the opportune time to plant seeds of faith, to teach life-long prayer habits and to instill the Fruits of the Spirit. We know from Proverbs 22:6 that if we ..."train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it." Our preschoolers share monthly chapel times as well as daily Bible Circles. New Hope Preschool believes that children are God's greatest blessing, and we are privileged to help your child begin or cultivate a relationship with our Risen Savior!

The Emotional ABC's

image14

At New Hope Preschool we work hard to teach your child how to successfully manage their emotions. With the Emotional ABC's, we help your child learn School Readiness: giving them the ability to self-sooth and work through emotions. These are the foundation for social and academic success. The Emotional ABC's also teaches Impulse Control: children need simple tools in order to slow themselves down and identify what they are feeling before they take action. Lastly, our preschoolers learn about Frustration and Acting Out: children become frustrated when they can't recognize their emotions or when they lack an emotional vocabulary to express themselves. For more information on the Emotional ABC's, please click here.  

Potty Training Curriculum

At New Hope Preschool,  we do not require your child to be potty trained. Instead, we partner with parents to teach your child how to use the restroom like a big kid. Our potty training curriculum is the most fun children will have when potty training! By encouraging common toddler phrase, "I can do it, all by myself!" we encourage independence, therefore building confidence and self esteem in our children. 

Ages & Stages
