Welcome to the HGCS Early Education Center 

HGCS continues to celebrate over 25 years as a distinctively Christian school. We are pleased to be able to offer a half-day Preschool Program at the Mallard Creek Campus and a full-day Preschool Program at the Harris Campus. 

Our purpose is to honor God by providing whole-child developmental activities that facilitate growth in the lives of young children. Our teachers and staff provide a warm and secure Christian atmosphere where each child has the opportunity to grow spiritually, academically, physically, emotionally, and socially.

It is a joy and privilege to teach children in a safe and Christ-honoring environment. At Hickory Grove, we will always seek to know Christ and to make Him known in our center, our community, and our world. We look forward to partnering with your family this year to a fantastic year of playing, growing, and learning together. At HGCS we are aware that now, more than ever, a happy, healthy environment for young children is essential.

Our center will teach using curricula supporting learning that is most important for helping young children develop. The Creative Curriculum®  and The Gospel Project for Preschool will be incorporated weekly in every classroom. These curricula will work in conjunction to best grow our children educationally and biblically. Each child is guided according to age and developmentally appropriate activities. As a school, we understand there is value in recognizing the developmental stages that children experience because it is indeed God’s design for them. 

Age and developmentally appropriate learning centers within the classroom support unit studies every four weeks. We encourage a whole-child approach to Early Education which is defined by best practice and policy. We encourage relationships that promote healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged children. Partnered with your family and a steady focus on the Gospel, we truly will grow healthy, happy children for His Kingdom.
