I am pleased to write a letter of recommendation for my childcare company, Little Hand Daycare, who has done so much for my child Anthony that I hope I can put my feelings into words. My son, Anthony, has attended for almost a year and his development physically and mentally has been dramatic.

As hard as it is to have to leave your child everyday to make ends meet in these days of economic hardship, I am extremely grateful that there is a place that can care for my child as I would have taken care of him if I was able to be a stay at home mother. When I drop my son off in the morning, I leave having the peace of mind that my child is safe, learning and being well taken care of.

A typical day at Little Hand has my son building social skills by interacting with the other children, playing learning games that allow him to expand his knowledge and increase his cognitive abilities and also allowing him the freedom to do the things that all the children of his age love to do, play.

If it were not for Little Hand Daycare, my husband and I would not be able to provide for our child the way he deserves. The sense of security and the knowing that my son is in a place that has his best interests taken care of, allows me to not have to worry any more than a mother should have to when my child is not with me.

More Testimonials


We just wanted to send you a quick not of gratitude and appreciation for our two boys: Sebastien (3), and Conrad (2). They have made considerable progress since joining your Montessori program and they continue to impress us on a daily basis. What we like most about the school is that it does not just focus on cognitive skills but on real world experiences which is invaluable to a child's development.

Conrad is only 2 and he can recite his alphabet without pausing and can also count. Sebastien has been doing the same since he was two and can count until 100 now. They know the name of many animals and try to apply what they've learned in school during their numerous excursions in everyday life. We especially like that the school teaches them to be responsible and organized. They know the importance of returning a book or a toy to its rightful place once they are done. We see that they are learning to write, draw, observe a proper etiquette... They've also gone through some potty training and the list goes on.

Thanks again

Prudeau and Jennifer
