Creative Hands Learning Center & Daycare
Creative Hands Learning Center and daycare was created under the basic principles that children have a special place in this world and that early childhood education is an essential base to life-long learning. Creative Hands daycare was opened in March 2009, and is owned and managed by a staff that has a combined 25 years plus in daycare and early childhood education
We strive to foster social, emotional, physical, cognitive, and creative development through creative experiences and positive relationships. Our goal is to provide a safe, warm, nuturing and comfortable environment where children can explore their surroundings, and create an understanding of the world around them.
Each day, Creative Hands provides a balanced approach to learning, giving you the peace of mind that your child will have fun as he develops socially, emotionally, physically, and intellectually. We give your child the tools to become confident and self-aware. In a caring and stimulating atmosphere, our passionate and engaging teachers give your child endless opportunities to grow, learn, and imagine whether building a spaceship to blast off to Mars or inviting a new friend to share a story during group time. While academics play a role in development, we believe there are many other opportunities for enhancing the whole child.
We recognize that daycare curriculum is more than what appears in manuals or a series of activities. We believe daycare curriculum is everything that happens in the classroom, from interactions and meals to singing and playing. We never miss an opportunity to educate.
Creative Hands daycare teaches children life skills that go beyond reading, writing, and math. Playing with toys helps develop motor skills and teaches lessons about sharing with friends. Singing songs while washing hands instills an interest in the arts while forging social bonds and educating children about the need for good hygiene. Each activity is designed with a specific lesson or outcome in mind.
We provide a balance between choice and structured activities, between group and individual pursuits, and between teacher and child-directed experiences. We teach seasonally relevant lessons. For example, children learn about spiders in spring and farming in fall. And, we give families the tools to continue the education at home.
