Best Child Care/Pre-school in the Downtown Area - Hands Down.
When I first visited Hand in Hand, we were looking for a dynamic, loving, appropriately-challenging preschool for our two children. We were less than pleased with their then-provider and wanted to find a place that the whole family would love. After visiting several other facilities, I walked into the door of Hand in Hand, was warmly welcomed by the immensely affable and intelligent Linnea (owner) and given a tour. Within a minute of being there, tears welled in my eyes and I instantly knew this was the place for us.
Each child I saw that day was beaming with smiles, was courteous, well-mannered and seemingly well-adjusted. The staff greeted me kindly but only momentarily as they were all completely immersed in the children and the activities at hand – I wouldn’t have had it any other way.
Besides the happiness and contentment that filled the air, the facility was beyond charming and so clean. Every nook had something to observe, something to stimulate, something to create. The yard outside was a ripe ground for exploration and imagination. Before I knew it, I was asking to sign on the dotted line – our search had come to an end.
Our older daughter will soon be starting 1st grad and she is excelling, in no small part due to the tailored and well-balanced curriculum at Hand in Hand. Our son is still there. For two working parents, this is the ideal environment. It is so comforting to know our children are in such good hands when we can’t be with them. In fact, the teachers at Hand in Hand and the overarching philosophy based on the three simple qualities of “safe, kind, and clean,” have helped us be even better parents at home. Not only do they teach the children, they teach the parents.
Over the course of time, we have not once been disappointed. Besides the superb quality of care given to our children, somehow the staff find the time to keep parents fully involved. White boards detail the activities of the day, calendars show the meals provided, parent files are constantly added to with information about our children and their development or entertaining stories about them, or parenting, or Hand in Hand news. The level of communication with the parents is beyond compare. Hand in Hand is, in the truest sense of the word, a community.
I think one of the most telling signs of the quality of the institution is the consistency of the staff. There is virtually no staff turnover – they are happy and they stay for years and years, enabling the relationship between families and the daycare provider to grow and flourish.
I cannot speak highly enough of Hand in Hand. I tell everyone I know with daycare-age children to go visit. I know they will be as delighted and in as much awe as I was – from when I walked in the first time to this very day.
Best Preschool in Sacramento. Hand In Hand is the most friendly, child and family oriented preschool in Sacramento. The teachers become part of your family. Safe, Kind and Clean is their motto - and the children know it! I would highly recommend HIH!
