Hope 4 Kids Preschool & Infant/Toddler Center is a warm, friendly place dedicated to serving our community's children and families. We are constantly evaluating and improving our programs and services to best serve our enrolled families and staff. We are a nonprofit and we reinvest resources into our programs, environment, services, and staff. We constantly invest in capital projects for our classrooms both inside and outside for the benefit of children's quality experiences. We host Parent Enrichment Meetings with free child care and free healthy food giving parents opportunities to connect with each other, eat a healthy meal, and learn more about this incredible adventure of raising children to reach their full potential and become loving, responsible, contributing members of our community...and the world.
We do not take caring for children lightly. We know this field is critical to our community's future and hire staff who are dedicated, loving, and professional who have more requirements, training and experience than required. We do this because we want the BEST for our children! We reinvest in our staff with monthly training and development meetings. We offer very competitive pay, health and medical benefits, child care benefits, fun in-service meetings, career growth opportunities, and educational reimbursement plans. We believe investing in our staff translates into investing in our children and families, as they are the ones providing direct care to children.
We believe in healthy foods and pay more because we want as many locally grown and organic products as possible. We are a certified Outdoor Classroom Demonstration Site and participating in the Preschool Healthy Foods Initiative. We are the first preschool to have a commercial Tower Garden Farm. Because of our Tower Gardens and organic garden boxes, children are exposed to the process of growing healthy food, the difference between our food and store-bought food (taste, texture, appearance, nutritional value, etc.), the benefits of making healthy food choices, and the self-confidence of assisting in growing their own food.
We are constantly looking for ways to make our program great so our children can reach their full potential, so our staff can feel fulfilled and continually make a difference, and so our management team can be equipped to coach and lead the greatest team of professional teachers possible. We care. We want to make a difference. We teach because we believe children possess the power to change the future and make a positive impact on our world. We hope you will join us for this amazing journey of shaping tomorrow! Contact us at 682-2300 so we can show you around and give you a tour of our amazing program!
We are so happy we finally found Hope4Kids!! We moved to Santa Barbara and we were looking for a place to enroll our little girl that would give her a chance to interact with other children and play outside. Hope4Kids has been incredible! All of the teachers are very attentive to her and to us. She has really grown since coming to Hope4kids. She cries because there is no school on Saturdays and can't wait for Monday to go! She sings songs she learned in class, she talks about all her little friends and is always wanting to share new things with us her teachers taught her. I wish Hope4kids would have been around when I went to preschool! It's always clean and the kids are ALWAYS smiling and playing together when we come. Even the teachers from the other classes talk with us to see if we need anything or if they can help us. I've never had this kind of service at a preschool. We are very happy and can't say enough wonderful things about Hope4kids!

This place rocks! Exciting place for kids and supportive for parents. Best customer service I've ever had! These guys know what they're doing. My kids always love going to school! They're learing so much about nature and how to get along. I recommend Hope 4 Kids to all my friends!
We are extremely thankful for the love and devotion Hope4Kids has shown our children. We have had two children attend and they are both self-confident and not afraid to go outside and enjoy nature! My husband was so impressed when we went on a hike last weekend and our kids made it the whole way while talking about the plants, birds, trees, and smells like they were park rangers! This school has given our children things we can't because we both work all day. I have never been happier and will always recommend Hope 4 Kids! If we have another child we will DEFINITELY go to Hope 4 Kids! Best decision we ever made!
I LOVE H4K! I wish I were still in preschool because Hope 4 Kids is WHERE I WOULD GO! Devoted, caring, energetic, enthusiastic teachers. Creative events and activities for our whole family. We loved the Christmas show! We love how the school cares about being green and caring for the environment. BEST SCHOOL IN SB!
I can never repay Hope 4 Kids for the love they've given my two children. The teachers are outstanding! My girls are confident, happy, and LOVE going to school! They learn about nature, about animals and bugs, they learn their letters and numbers. The girls have made so many friends at Hope 4 Kids! We love the care, thoughtfulness, and the obvious amount of time all of the staff devote to all of the children. We've never been happier and we tell all of our friends about this awesome program!
