Hands On Art & Play Preschool — A place to explore arts, crafts and music in an environment that is exciting, safe and fun. Hands On follows the same routine each day so the children feel secure in knowing what to expect throughout the day. The times of our activities flow with the needs of the children. Each day children have many opportunities to create artwork. Art activities help children develop their creativity and sharpen fine motor skills. Children work independently on many projects, and also play and create with other children their age. Hands On helps children learn appropriate behavior and how to use their words to get what they need. The children enjoy learning together and forming friendships.
