In January of 1997, Little Hands Big Hearts Christian Preschool was established by the Lutheran Church of the Redeemer and former Director Mary Ann Onessimo to provide a preschool experience for children ages 8 weeks – 6 years of age. Our former Director Mary Ann Onessimo has since retired after 18 years! We thank her for the many hours and love she put into our program. Our Christian based philosophy and curriculum is guided by an understanding of children’s individual differences and developmental needs. Children are encouraged through art, music, science, language, and social studies to discover their countless abilities. We promote the growth of physical, cognitive, social, and emotional development of young children, while responding to the needs of their families. We strive to provide a safe, loving, and nurturing environment. Our objective is that each child will achieve a level of independence in daily tasks and group situations, while building their self-confidence through accomplished age-appropriate activities. We anticipate that each child graduating LHBH, will be eager and well prepared for the Kindergarten experience ahead.
