High Hopes' expansion into kindergarten is the start of a new era for the inclusive pediatric development center.
Good news from High Hopes! The development center, located in Franklin, will open its first kindergarten class in the fall of ’18. Curriculum will align with state standards and kindergarteners will have a 1:7 student/teacher ratio. Fourteen “K” spots are available.
High Hopes currently educates preschoolers ages 6 weeks through pre-kindergarten in an inclusive setting. Approximately 40 percent of the preschoolers have a developmental delay.
The new kindergarten classroom is made possible through High Hope’s expansion. In addition to the new classroom, the expansion is allowing for new administrative offices, a teacher workroom, staff break rooms and more.
Cost of Inclusive Kindergarten
Tuition for kindergarten is set at $12,900 for the year. This can be made in monthly installments of $1,290. Additional fees include supplies ($225) and morning or afternoon care or both, as needed.
To learn more about High Hopes’ new kindergarten, the center is offering “Open Parent Tours” on Tue, March 20 from 9 – 10 a.m.; Mon, March 26 from 10 – 11 a.m.; and Tue, April 3 from 9:30 – 10:30 a.m. RSVP for a tour by calling Jessica Mizell at 615-550-1447.
About High Hopes
High Hopes Development Center was established in 1984 by five Middle Tennessee families with a special needs child. Realizing their children’s needs were not being met in local preschools, they joined together to launch High Hopes. Learn more about High Hopes online.
