About Us

Safe, Caring, Fun


The mission of Hearts & Hands Early Learning Center is to provide a safe, caring and fun environment for your child to grow. Our programs provide a stimulating educational experience that promotes emotional, physical, and cognitive development. We also concentrate on social development, helping your child learn to get along with other children, and to listen and respect their teachers. We are committed to providing a quality service and giving parents peace of mind. We welcome families of all faiths, nationalities, and cultures.

We help your child grow...

Our objectives are to help your child grow into a well-adjusted individual by offering art, music, literature, and science. We use programs that facilitate language development and math concepts. Our programs are designed to help your child:

1. Create a desire to attend school.

2. Develop a positive attitude toward teachers and others.

3. Teach the use of language to express thoughts and feelings, and to increase knowledge.

4. Teach the names of objects encountered in daily living.

5. Develop the ability to work and play with others.

6. Provide opportunities to practice sharing, being kind, and accepting of other children.

7. Stimulate the discovery of the environment outside the home and neighborhood.

8. Have fun.
