At Little Hands Child Care, Inc. we strive to provide a loving, nurturing and creative environment for children. We are sensitive to their social, emotional, intellectual and physical needs. We provide developmentally appropriate programs that focus on the process of learning while also helping them to enjoy many other successful experiences.
We believe in providing a physical environment that is safe, clean, healthy and child
friendly. Classrooms are arranged to offer challenging play and learning choices at a range of developmental levels. Learning centers allow children the opportunity to explore and to experience the environment.

We believe in positive methods of discipline. We establish consistent and appropriate limits to help children function in their world. Our programs are designed to develop in children a sense of independence and responsibility. We strive to strengthen each child's own cultural identity, while instilling a respect for others.
Parents are the most significant adults in a child's life. We strive to create mutual respect between parents and teachers - a partnership for the benefit of the child. We encourage daily communication between parents and the center staff. Our doors are open to parents at all times.
Our center values people: the children in our care, their parents, and our employees. We continually work to earn the trust placed in us. We strive each day to provide the best early childhood education services possible.

My son has been at Little Hands for about 2 years and I absolutely love the place and so does he. He had previously been at another place down the road and although the facility at Little Hands is older, it is 100 times cleaner. The staff are very kind and attentive to the children and are very communicative with everything. The anxiety I previously had when bringing him to the other place (Little Explorers) just disappeared. I feel safe and secure leaving my treasured son in their hands and I am so thankful for them. He is also well fed and they do a variety of crafts and he comes home all the time having learned new things and songs. I cannot say enough good things about this daycare!
