Little Hands Discovery Center is a small in home daycare serving families since 2002. My name is Lonna, I am the owner-operator, and I have over 30 years of childcare experience. I use a child centered approach to developing curriculum. I base both the learning themes and the skill level of activities on the current interests and abilities of the children. We have daily music, art, language and math activities as well as a large outdoor learning environment to enjoy when weather permits. I also have a large home library available for children to discover books. I enjoy playing the ukulele, gardening, and crocheting unique toys and I share these skills with the children in my care. I have worked with many happy families throughout the years and can provide numerous references upon request. My rates are flexible and realistic for the working family. I am CPR and first aid certified for infants, children and adults. I am fully vaccinated and keep up to date with all required boosters. We are open from 6 am to 6 pm, Monday through Friday. I am able to accept infants starting at the age of six weeks and can provide after school care for older children if they have a younger sibling in my care.

Our weekly rates include healthy snacks and lunch as well as all art supplies or any other curriculum materials.

I am now accepting new clients. If you have any questions, I would be happy to answer them. Please contact me if you are interested and would like more information. I believe firmly in the idea that good childcare comes from having an open and honest relationship between the child care provider and the parents. If you are looking for a personalized approach to your child's care, please consider making an appointment and stop by for a visit!
