Discover an inclusive, student-centered preschool community where exploration, collaboration, and kindness are encouraged.
We are excited to meet you and support your child’s journey into preschool at Hopkins Public Schools! At Hopkins, your child will discover an inclusive, student-centered community where empathy, collaboration, and kindness are encouraged. They will develop creativity, confidence, and strong social relationships through play-based exploration of academic concepts built around their interests.
Hopkins Preschool sites are located at each of our elementary schools and Harley Hopkins Family Center in Hopkins.
Our teaching staff will be reaching out to all registered families to setup orientation meetings with you. Please take a moment to read through our Policies and Information and Preschool Handbook tabs for more information on procedures.
Your preschooler should be supplied with the following every day:
- A backpack for daily information and artwork to come home in.
- Outdoor appropriate clothing and accessories, labeled with their name.
- A change of clothing, all labeled, including a resealable bag to contain the clothes.
- A water bottle that is also labeled.
We do not require any school supplies, but we do accept donations for the classrooms. Common donations consist of: art supplies, facial tissue, 5oz waxed disposable cups, and baby wipes. Teaching staff may have additional donation requests, and thank you for your help!

Your Hopkins preschooler will discover an inclusive school community where empathy, collaboration, and kindness are encouraged. They will develop creativity, confidence, and strong social relationships through play-based exploration of academic concepts built around their interests.
Our students are at the center of everything we do. When students feel heard, seen, and valued, they can do their very best work — that’s why love is one of our core values.
Our Reggio-Emilia inspired curriculum and physical spaces are designed to engage young minds and use their natural sense of discovery as a catalyst for deeper learning. Our nurturing teachers focus on your child’s academic and social-emotional success so they can reach their full potential.
