High Hoppers will be closed on the last day of school, Friday, May 26th in order to prepare for our summer move.

Philosophy and Goals

The High Hoppers School-Age Child Care (SACC) Program philosophy is to provide a positive, fun, and safe environment, which focuses on the whole child. We offer hands-on experiences that enrich and build each child’s learning skills according to their age and ability in order to allow personal growth and development. 

 The High Hoppers Program offers:
 · A safe, accepting, fun, and positive environment for all children.
 · Activities which help develop a healthy mind, body, and character through vigorous, challenging and creative recreational and enriching activities.
 · Opportunities to develop and strengthen social relationships.
 · An introduction to service learning opportunities which allows participants to develop a
   respect for individuals, groups, and the community.
 · Open communication among staff, participants, and parents.
Eligibility for Participation 
Children enrolled in the High Hoppers Program must be between the ages of 5 and 12 years and must be enrolled at Mark Hopkins Elementary.
