As I have been adding schools to our preschool database, I learned that a new preschool will open in Garner for the next school year.

Newhope Church's Garner campus will open hopekids in the fall. The half-day program will offer classes from 9 a.m. to noon or 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. depending on the age group. A typical school day will include center time, circle time, outdoor play, music, chapel, snack, a special activity, art and lunch.

There will be classes for one-year-olds to transitional kindergarten. Tuition ranges from $125 a month to $250 a month depending on the program.

The church is at 2967 Benson Rd. in Garner.

Newhope's Central campus in the Southpoint area of Durham has an existing preschool. The Garner campus' director, Denyse Oeltjenbruns, has 15 years experience as a classroom teacher and literacy specialist. She currently teaches third grade for Wake County Schools and has two preschool aged children of her own who will attend hopekids in the fall.

For details or to arrange a tour, contact Denyse at Parents can also call 919-206.HOPE. Denyse also will be at the 40/42 Strawberry Festival in Johnston County on Saturday with information.
