Welcome to Hackmann Early Childhood! We are honored to have you and your child join us on this magical journey through preschool. Building a strong Duckling Community is a priority to our staff as we recognize that you are your child’s first teacher.
Hackmann Early Childhood Center is a warm and wonderful environment that sparks a joy for learning, growing, and connecting. I greatly value that my children are fostering a love of learning within a diverse peer group. The teachers and staff are dedicated, seasoned, and highly trained, bringing a wealth of knowledge to the classroom. The principal is committed to creating a strong community among families and is always looking for new ways to connect and improve the school-family relationship. Overall a great school community and a great first step in a child's academic journey with the Francis Howell School District!
Hackmann was the answer to my childcare and preschool needs. As a first time parent I wanted to ensure my child was in a safe place with well trained educators who were there to nourish his mind, body and soul. We found all of that and more in our six years with two children attending preschool part-time at Hackmann. It became like home. Our children still speak fondly of their experience. We could not have asked for kinder or more dedicated staff. They treated us like family and will forever be in our hearts.
