Kids & Company

!!!!NEW OPPORTUNITY TO GIVE BACK TO YOUR COMMUNITY!!!!

This past year has been challenging for all of us due to the pandemic and the hardships it has caused for our community. For Hopkins Community Education, programming came to a halt, and we were mandated to provide Tier One workers childcare at no cost to our families. We were honored to be there for our community in a time of critical need.

As we recover, we recognize that Hopkins Public Schools families are also struggling. Families are experiencing job loss and struggling to make ends meet. To support Hopkins families we have set up a process for Hopkins Schools families to help each other.

If you would like to make a donation to help families access high quality childcare through Hopkins Community Ed, please register or sign in HERE and select the denomination of your choice in the drop-down menu to the right. You will receive an email confirmation upon completion of the donation.

Every child should have the opportunity to participate in enriching childcare programs. We appreciate your support and are grateful to be your partner in lifelong learning. For more information or if you have questions please contact our Community Education office at community.education@hopkinsschools.org.

Thank you for supporting Hopkins Public Schools Community Education!
