What happened to all the crafts? For a long time, paper-plate cut outs and googly eyes ruled the preschool classroom, and in many places, still do. The Day School strives to balance the more crafty, product-centered art with lots of meaningful process-art experiences for our little learners. We are passionate about the value it adds to their school experience. Read more for a full explanation!
HPPDS is so special to our family! We are a 3 generation day school family. What we value most about the Day School is the nurturing Christian environment and the whole child approach. You can feel the love in the halls and classrooms. Our oldest learned how to read in kindergarten at HPPDS, but most importantly, through the love of his teachers, he learned that he is a unique, special child of God.
Curriculum addresses all developmental areas in a whole-child approach.
HPPDS specializes in early childhood education.
Students learn special subjects from experts in those fields.
Our full-day PreK4 and Kindergarten students have been creating beautiful works of art while learning important life lessons. Read more to hear from our wonderful art teacher, Mrs. Cummins, about what "beautiful oops" means in her classroom!
I am so excited to be the STEAM teacher this year at HPPDS, and I don’t think I could even dream of a more perfect job, because I am having a blast teaching your children!
Our STEAM classroom is a hands-on classroom, meaning that I like to provide the students with different materials to peek their curiosity, whether it be building materials, rocks, insects, science experiments, bones, bird nests, ocean life, microscopes, sewing table, and yes, even my grandfather’s dentures! I love for them to ask questions, use critical thinking, and problem solve!
