Hopwood School & Camp


Hello! My name is Heidi Hopwood Geverd, the director and owner of the Hopwood School & Camp. My parents, Ann and Richard Hopwood, founded our school in 1968 and our camp in 1981. I am proud to carry on the fine work they started.   

Along with our staff, my mother Ann and my family, I offer my most sincere gratitude for the opportunity to serve all of you for so long! We look forward to many many more wonderful years!

Hopwood has a wonderful staff of dedicated, state certified teaching professionals that have been with the school and camp for many years. After you review our web site, I encourage you to contact me to discuss your child's bright future! The majority of our programs fill early so please don't wait!

About the Hopwood School & Camp

Ann and Richard Hopwood founded the Hopwood Nursery School in 1968 and the Hopwood Summer Day Camp in 1981. Hopwood School & Camp is now owned and directed by their daughter Heidi Hopwood Geverd. The school is licensed by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Department of Education and Department of Human Services. 

Hopwood is conveniently located in Kulpsville, Pennsylvania (Towamencin Township), central to Lansdale, Harleysville, Hatfield, North Wales, Worcester and Skippack. The school is less than one mile from the Lansdale exit (31) of the Pennsylvania Turnpike's N.E. Extension (I-476). The Hopwood School & Camp has been consistently voted the "best" or "one of the best" by local families.

Hopwood's school curriculum is based on the High Scope Curriculum. The High Scope approach emphasizes the "active learner" and incorporates five basic elements of sound developmental practices for children and effective program management strategies for adults.

Hopwood has a dedicated staff of certified teachers. Our campus encompasses 8.5 acres in a country setting and offers a truly unique, year round, indoor and outdoor learning experience. Open spaces, trees and wildlife offer a rich environment for children to learn, play, explore, and interact. The school's enclosed play yard alone is over 2/3 of an acre and includes an all weather, 2000 sq. ft. covered play pavilion. When not in class, Hopwood children sled in the winter, chase butterflies in the spring, swim in the summer and jump in fall leaf piles! Hopwood's resident animals ("Tessa" the pony and alpacas "Harley", "Harry" and "Judd") often provide learning opportunities and comical distractions for the children. Hopwood connects outdoor and indoor learning experiences. We do not use chemical fertilizers or herbicides on our campus.
