About Creative Hands
We believe in the development of the whole child. Children thrive and grow in self-confidence in the program’s safe, noncompetitive environment where they are fully accepted as they are. Our curriculum is designed to focus on the creative, emotional, intellectual, physical and social growth of each individual child. We believe that children learn best through play, engaging interactions, and positive experiences. They grow and develop when they are in a supportive environment that encourages them to try new things and to express their natural curiosity. As the children play with appropriate materials and equipment, they gain knowledge about their world. We strive to create lifelong learners. At Creative Hands, every child can learn and grow!
Our vision is to be the recognized leader in providing the best quality care for children. To be known for our exceptional educational programs, talented teams, customer service and community relationships. We pride ourselves on our unique blend of fun and learning in a safe, nurturing, family environment.

Our Six Key Principals of Child Development
- Development occurs in classrooms that are structured to provide children with opportunities to independently explore, select, create and problem solve.
- Development occurs in a relatively orderly sequence with later abilities, skills, and knowledge building on those already acquired.
- Children demonstrate different levels of knowledge. They also have different ways of representing what they know.
- Development and learning occur in and are influenced by multiply cultural and social contexts.
- Children develop and learn best in the context of a community where they are safe and valued, and their needs are met.
- Parents are a child’s first teacher and an important influence in their life.
