Inspired Learning for the Whole Child

At Hands On, we focus on the healthy development of the whole child emotional, physical, intellectual, and social.

We offer programs for ages 3 – 5. Class sessions for preschool are 3 or 3.5 hours long and meet 3 to 5 days per week. These sessions provide your child with ample time to delve deeply into projects, master new skills, and engage in imaginative play.

Our theme-based curriculum is designed to support early learning and improve school readiness. The Museum relies on current research and consults with early learning and elementary professionals to ensure that our program exemplifies the best practices in education for your child.
