Why Choose HPA?

Small Class Sizes

HPA operates on Voluntary Enhanced Ratios meaning our student to teacher ratios are lower than that mandated by the state. We believe that these lower ratios give much more one on one and small group time between teacher and student. This time is crucial in building relationships and trust! 

Creative Curriculum/Play Based Curriculum

The Creative Curriculum® for Preschool is an early childhood curriculum that focuses on project-based investigations as a means for children to apply skills and addresses four areas of development: social/emotional, physical, cognitive, and language.

Daily Specials

Each morning of the week at HPA a different special takes place, including; ballet, art, music, storytelling and big body play. 

Qualified Teachers

The HPA teachers and staff are educated and trained early childhood professionals. However, and most importantly, they are also individuals with a true passion for helping children establish a life long love of learning.
