Great Hope Preschool (GHP) is developmentally appropriate in its approach to early childhood care and education. The first location opened in October 2014 in Wesley Chapel, Florida. In the winter of 2018 our Lake Magdalene location in Tampa opened. In the summer of 2020 GHP assumed the operations of the childcare center, previously TodayCare Children's Center, located on PHSC's West Campus at 10230 Ridge Road in New Port Richey. Our program provides each child with the opportunity to attach firmly to a warm, responsive, appropriate, and consistent adult during the early years of your child’s life.  We believe that children learn best by active exploration of their learning environment through play.  Play is the foundation for academic learning and discoveries.  According to Jean Piaget’s theory, learning is established through play and exposure to a variety of experiences. We believe that a home away from home should provide a warm, positive, understanding, safe, secure, and loving, place for a child to play and learn. Children are individuals with unique and special needs.  Reach out to learn more, and enroll with us today!
