In 1955 a group of parents from the Richfield United Church of Christ (formerly known as the Federated Church of Richfield) decided to begin a cooperative nursery school. Hobbitts Preschool began with only a few families and has grown to over ninety!
The Hobbitts Preschool acquired its name from a classic piece of children’s literature, “The Hobbit” written by J. R. R. Tolkien and published in 1937. Hobbits are “little people” smaller than elves. They are a merry fold, good-natured, hospitable, and enjoy handcrafts, peace and prosperity.
