Preschool Program

Our preschool program is designed so children (2.5 – 6 yrs.) can experience preschool without having to attend every day or a minimum number of days each week.  At Hands On your child may attend 1 – 5 days a week.

After School Classes

We partner with local children’s programs to offer a variety of classes for children. This year we are pleased to work with Rachael Brown Dance, Portland Early Learning-Adventures in Spanish, & Mindful Life Yoga.

Why We Shine

Flexible Days

Our preschool program is designed so children can experience preschool without having to attend every day or a minimum number of days each week.  At Hands On your child may attend 1,2,3,4, or 5 days a week.

Outdoor Play

Our preschool has a WONDERFUL playground with a climbing wall, giant sandbox, playhouses, slides, and natural areas. We play outside almost every day, rain or shine.

Art - Every Day

Our students have many opportunities to create artwork.  There is a new project every day, as well as ongoing projects we work on for several weeks.

Theater

We had the opportunity to partner with Northwest Children’s Theater this year. Each week the children have the pleasure of participating in a dramatic theater class taught by the experts. It is so much fun!

Small Class Size

Our small class size allows all children to receive the attention they deserve.

Educational Guests

We invite local professionals, artists and children’s programs to join us frequently to  give the children a variety of new experiences. Guests include firefighters, EMTs, botanists, musicians, artists, soccer coaches, dance instructors, and yoga teachers.

Music & Movement

We are so lucky to have our own music & movement class weekly at Hands On taught by Growing Arts Children. The program teaches children body awareness and creative self expression while connecting with their friends as they sing, sign, stretch, dance and play.

Teachers

Our teachers are very special and love our students and our school. They prove it with how long they’ve been here. Every single one of these amazing people has been here more than 10 years!
