Child Care, Pre-School, and Kindergarten Readiness...
Infant Program (4 weeks – 12 months old)
Program Description: The Helping Hands Infant Program provides a loving and nurturing environment for our children.
Primary care givers help develop a bond of trust through the love and care they provide while meeting the child’s basic needs.
The children thrive in a safe and healthy environment. Our classroom is designed to activate the senses and engage the imagination of your child. The children participate in activities designed with their developmental level in mind. These are selected by the teacher who is aware of each child’s unique abilities. They are trained to provide the kind of stimulation your infant needs to develop cognitive, social, emotional, physical and language skills. Many of the activities are carried out on a one-to-one basis.
Our infants enjoy weekly outdoor time where they explore their own infant/toddler playground.
Most important of all, you can be confident your child’s needs are being met in a warm and caring environment.
Before & After School...
Before and After School Program (Kdg. – 6th grade)
Program Description: The before and after school program provides care to school aged children and youth before and after school and also offer support to the families who are unavailable to give care when school is not in session during the school year. The program is also available on school holidays and special closings (including school vacation time). The children are given respect and made to feel comfortable and welcome.
Upon entrance, each child's special interests and skills are assessed so that activities can be offered to entice and enhance these attributes. The children are encouraged to make informed and responsible choices that will better their lives.
The indoor space is arranged to provide for varied activities and to enhance their current school work, their skills of reading, their socializing, their activity in physical games and sports, and creative arts, computer work, dramatic play, and quiet games.
