At Hope Academy of Stephens County, we use a developmentally appropriate Pre-Kindergarten curriculum that uses a variety of activities that promote learning by hands-on experiences, including movement, songs, and memory/recitation activities to teach children. Bible stories, songs and scripture are a key component in training children in Godly wisdom. Hope Academy of Stephens County provides full day programs in Pre-K and Kindergarten.
