Now Enrolling For The 2022-2023 School Year
Small Town Hope Preschool
at Hope's Villa Children's Center
We make learning fun! Children who attend our program will have a multi-faceted learning experience so that they can discover their strengths with positive support and grow into the amazing little humans they are meant to be. Little learners here will be able to paint, build towers, count, grow veggies, spend time with a book, take in nature, taste new snacks, write, pretend, sing, and dance! They'll be ready for Kindergarten intellectually, physically and socially.
Small Town Hope Preschool was started in 2015. That makes the 2022-2023 school year our 8th year of educating young children in the Northern Cambria Area! Each year, Small Town Hope strives to improve and grow its preschool program to offer the best learning experiences to our enrolled children. The lessons and curriculum are preparing your preschooler to meet important goals and to ensure development at the right pace. Our preschool program continues to be a wonderful journey and we're so proud of where it has led us.
Up To Now
On June 7, 2022, Small Town Hope celebrated 22 bright preschool graduates with a beautiful Graduation Ceremony! Students, teachers, families, supporters and community joined together for this joyous occasion. The graduating preschoolers sang songs, received special awards and diplomas, and soaked up a ton of well-earned congratulations for their hard work this school year.
Small Town Hope would like to thank everyone who made this uplifting Graduation Ceremony possible.
We value you beyond words.
to the Future
We are currently enrolling for the upcoming 2022-2023 school year. Please call 814-420-8362 if you are interested in enrolling your little one in our program. We'd love to have you as part of our preschool family.
Our program has been enhanced by use of The Creative Curriculum. Kiddos learn through an immersive, hands-on approach. The curiosity of the children steers the way, so our students are always engaged!
The Ones Who Shape Little Minds
Our Preschool Team is comprised of three credentialed, creative and committed Teachers. They make learning fun while modeling kindness and seizing every opportunity for teachable moments.

Our qualified staff go above and beyond with their caring and dedicated nature. They do more than teach - they encourage, comfort, support and inspire children to grow and learn.
A roomy, open-concept learning space provides the perfect environment for STH's educational programs! Safety always comes first. The vivid classroom is tailored to be appealing and welcoming to preschoolers. Incredible updates were made to this room through an Early Childhood Education Grant funded by the Community Foundations for the Alleghenies.
Research Based Curriculum
Our curriculum focuses on developing the whole child, allowing kiddos to learn through exploration. Each child learns in their own way and at different times - our curriculum supports ALL children learning in ALL ways. The purchase of this curriculum along with the related staff training could not have been possible without funding from an Early Childhood Education Grant funded by the Community Foundations for the Alleghenies.
Comfort and warmth are important to us. We love to form positive relationships with our center's children, their families and the community.
Social Emotional Health
In addition to the ABCs and 123s, children will learn how to be kind to others and kind to themselves. Social emotional health is as important to us as cognitive development. Children develop some of their first friendships with us!
At STH Preschool, every victory counts! Whether it's putting on their own shoes or writing their name for the first time, we are cheering the kiddos on to build confidence and a love for learning.
Learning is important, and so is moving your body! We spend time outdoors to encourage gross motor development. Our center even has a newly added garden area where children can get fresh air and learn at the same time!
Top Notch Nutrition
Our Hungry Caterpillar Kitchen is always serving up something tasty! We care about kids' nutrition and helping them develop a taste for healthy foods that nourish their growing bodies!
