The Hop, Inc.

Our deepest passions and rewards: We enjoy teaching children and preparing them for kindergarten. We show each and every child love, caring and compassion throughout each day. We enjoy coming up with new and creative ways to teach each child so we meet each child's learning style. We understand each child is different and learns in different ways so we teach in many different ways so each learning style is taught. 

Field Trips and More
