OUR PROGRAMS

We provide a balanced, developmentally appropriate and challenging program focusing on the social, emotional, physical and intellectual growth and development of each child.

Our Philosophy


We believe children learn through play. When children are stimulated in an environment of interaction new skills emerge and confidence grows. At Helping Hands our curriculum is rooted in current proven child care practices. Our knowledgeable staff follows emergent child care practices and gear programming towards the development of each child by responding to the interests, questions, and concerns generated in the classroom.

Toddler

“Toddlers learn with their whole bodies-not just their heads. They learn more through their hands than they do through their ears. They learn by doing, not only buy just thinking… Toddlers solve problems on a physical level (Gonzalex-Mena,1986)”.

Our Centre is licensed for two classrooms of 10 children, with two teachers in each room.

Junior & Senior Preschool

Preschoolers “become empowered in play to do things for themselves, to feel in control, to test and practice their skills, and to affirm confidence in themselves. Play is important for children’s developing sense of competence (Isenberg,1997).”

We are licensed for 2 Preschool rooms (21/2 -5years) one of 16 children with 2 full-time staff and one of 8 children with 1 full-time staff.
