Hope Waukee Preschool

At Hope Waukee’s Preschool, our program incorporates active learning with knowledgeable teachers and friends in a fun, Jesus-filled environment.  Our preschool teaches children about Jesus and his never-ending love for each of us. We encourage children as they experience the rewards of making a friend, and the joy of being one!

Preschool Summer Camp

Hope Waukee Preschool offers two weeks of themed summer camps for children ages 3-5! Families can sign up for one or both weeks. Children must be potty-trained (no pull-ups, please).

June 3-6: Animals in God’s Kingdom
Lions, tigers, and bears – oh my! This week is all about animals, including those on safari, at the barnyard and at the zoo.

June 10-13: Out of This World
Blast your camper into orbit with activities that will send them over the moon. We’ll turn up the curiosity as we look for new discoveries and unlock our imaginations through science experiments, art and creative play.

Cost: $110/week
