General School Mission

"Our mission is to provide superior childcare service in conjunction with an educational and developmentally appropriate program designed to nurture the "whole child" - intellectually, physically, imaginatively, emotionally and socially. Little Hands Learning Center has developed a curriculum that is designed to challenge and stimulate each child on a daily basis and ultimately instill a lifelong love of learning. Little Hands Learning Center (LHLC) promotes an environment that fosters critical thinking, problem solving skills, and social development through structured activities and active engaged learning. Our center's commitment to excellence is critical in these formative years for your child's overall growth and development.
