Preschool Summer Camp

Hope Ankeny Preschool offers two weeks of themed summer camps for children age 3 through entering grade 3! 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

MC ANK Preschool Program

Hope Ankeny Preschool Program

Our program offers children hands-on learning in a welcoming and loving environment. They get to explore and learn through structured and unstructured activities that are carefully chosen to promote exploration. Your child will learn to think creatively and independently. Our parents are encouraged to get involved in the classroom through daily learning and special family events.

Preschool Calendar

Preschool runs each school year from September until May. Special events include a Fall Open House, Christmas Program and Graduation Program (for 4- and 5-year-olds). We also hold special classroom holiday parties and invite parents to help out on those special days. See the school year calendar for an outline of all the exciting things happening at Hope Ankeny Preschool.

Get to Know Our Team

Research tells us that children who are enrolled in an Early Childhood Education program are more likely to be successful in school and beyond than those who aren’t. We love having the opportunity to introduce children to multiple different types of learning. We feel that play is an essential part of the classroom and we are intentional in how we guide children through fun and engaging learning experiences. It is a privilege to be able to share the love of Jesus with these precious children.
