Joyful, Active Learning for Kids 

At Hope West Des Moines Preschool children are engaged in active, joyful learning surrounded by loving teachers and friends. It’s a Christian atmosphere of warmth, understanding and caring – a place for your child to be seen as the special person God so lovingly created. It’s a place where learning is fun and meaningful.

Learning is fun!

We know that learning is everywhere: in the flicker of a firefly, in the creeping of a quiet spider, in the warmth of a hug. God has blessed children with the joyous gift of learning, and we celebrate that gift at Hope West Des Moines Preschool!
