Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"We at Hand In Hand Daycare & Preschool, Inc. recognize the need for children to work and play at their own pace. We encourage individual growth while offering group activities that are age-appropriate. Our staff members possess a genuine love of children that is shown through their continuous displays of affection and understanding. We believe children learn best in a supportive atmosphere where success and self-esteem are nurtured and reinforced. We create a love for learning by instilling confidence in each child. We believe that through strengthening social and intellectual capabilities children will be better prepared for life. Our children are taught how to compare, infer, judge, reorganize and make decisions -- abilities that make a child safer in today's world. We offer a child-centered teaching technique, encouraging children to learn concepts and skills through self-discovery, while our teachers remain available to maintain the flow of the classroom and to assist children in their discoveries. We are dedicated to helping each child reach his or her full potential in a nurturing, creative environment. Your child's comforts, needs and safety are always our number one priority"
