Little Hands Academy offers a developmental approach to education, where we focus on the whole child. We foster the mind, body and spirit incorporating various different activities supporting their individual developmental milestones . We build our foundations based on the Reggio Emilia approach to childhood education. This is a program based on the principles of respect, responsibility, and community through exploration and discovery in a supportive and enriching environment based on the interests of the children through a self-guided curriculum. Our goal is to promote the cognitive, social, emotional and physical growth of the children. We believe the needs and rights of the child come first.
Our facility is an exciting learning environment, which encourages a child’s natural curiosity and helps make the transition from infancy through early childhood and into their primary stages of development.
The activities chosen are designed to help the child’s social, emotional, and cognitive skills of development. Each of these areas is equally important in developing a well-rounded, socially adjusted child. Activities that provide for progress in each of these developmental areas are the most important aspects of our learning program.
Philosophy & Mission
Helping Your Child Explore, Grow, & Learn
What We Offer
Responsible Decision Making
Infant One & Two
No child will be pressured into potty training. Children will become potty trained at their own pace. Children will transition out of the toddler/two room when they are developmentally ready; being potty trained is not a criterion for moving on to Preschool.
What Our Families are Saying
When we were first looking for a daycare for our newborn, we looked all over the region – from the chains, to independent schools like LHA, to home daycares. We didn’t find any other place that gave us the “feel” that LHA did. From Nina to the teachers to the outstanding (and constantly improving) facilities, Little Hands is the best place we’ve seen and we trust our son to them completely.
The teachers and owner at Little Hands Academy work diligently to inspire creativity and exploration for each child to assist them in understanding the world around them! It is truly a place where each child can truly thrive.
We have loved to see the girls grow and thrive over their two years with you. We would recommend your school to anyone!
