‚ÄčAges Accepted

At Handprints we follow the

Play-Based Curriculum Model which means that we allow students to play by using their five senses- touch, hear, smell, see and taste. We explore the world around us with stories, music, sensory activities, cooking, and much more.

We believe that children learn by investigating the world around them through doing what they do best...play!

The daily schedule is planned so as to allow for a flexible balance of activities. 

The balance is achieved by providing opportunities in the following areas:


 -Indoor / outdoor          -Large muscle / small muscle development       -Language development        

-Creativity, experimentation, questioning and reasoning     -Independence, self-confidence, and responsibility           -Readiness skills     -Social skills        -Sharing        -Arts and crafts
-Block building       -Cooking and nutrition        -Dramatic play
-Health and safety       -Music and movement       -Natural science         -Stories and storytelling
