General Info
Hand in Hand is a preschool, not only a day care center in Las Vegas. Our program doesn't simply provide childcare in the Henderson and Las Vegas area. Our program is distinctly different than daycare because we are structured as a traditional school with developmentally appropriates programs and academic curriculum. The fundamentals and core concepts of our program are based on the principles of early childhood and preschool education. The curriculum for each classroom and age group is carefully composed to ensure your child is being cared for as well as being challenged each day, in new and creative ways.* Entry Control System* Safety and SecurityAccess to all classrooms is monitored and controlled through the security system at the center hallway entrance in the reception area of our preschool and early development center. The installation and usage of this entry system contributes to a greater level of protection and safety for the children under our care.Arrival and Pick-up ProceduresEach parent or guardian will be provided with their own personal identification number to access the computerized entry system and check their child into and out of school. A sign in sheet in each classroom signed by the parent or guardian checking their child in and out provides an additional layer of security.In order to protect our students, only the parents, guardians and adults with written permission from the parents or guardians will be allowed to enter the classroom areas and pick up children.Video Monitoring SystemTo increase the level of safety and accountability, we have installed a video monitoring system in the areas where children are throughout the day. Cameras monitor all classrooms and outside play areas. Video monitors are displayed in the reception area for parents to view. In addition, monitors in the main office enable management continuous observation and monitoring of any classroom or play area. At Hand in Hand Preschool and Early Development Center, your child's safety and security is of the up most importance.

Overall

While I did love this school at first as did my son we eventually had to take him out. First, my one main concern was the student to teacher ratio... At the beginning they tell me 1 teacher to 12 students well there were up to 30 kids in the classroom at times. My child had a hard time coping in a class size that large. They are required to do worksheets for an hour at a time it seemed and expected to sit still at 3.5-4 years old, they had a behavior chart in there that seems like once you got on the "oops" or "uh oh" there was no way of earning your way back up. My son is not easy I know that, but really what 3-4 year old is? They lost patience with him I dropped him off at 9:45a and by 10a was called to come get him on the morning we decided to just take him out. I grew tired of hearing all the bad things he was doing and saying. Turns out he MAY be on the autism spectrum... So if you have a child with even the slightest disability or a defiant child I would not recommend this place since they do not have the patience or skill to know how to help a child with special needs or defiance. Though they will offer you resources. Since removing him from this school he is so much happier and his behavior has really turned around. It was truly heartbreaking to hear and be told all the negative things he was doing everyday, nothing positive really was said. I know he can be challenging but I also know he's a sweet, caring and polite kid when treated with patience and respect. While there are a lot of great qualities about this school, there is a lot of room for improvement. Pros: clean organized class room, extremely structured, most staff was pretty friendly, always open door with director Christine, offered resources

Cons: too many kids in one room, reflected on negative behavior too much instead of positive reinforcement. One size fits all type of learning or cookie cutter.

I know that this cannot be an easy field, early childhood development so I'm just giving our experience so take what you must from it. I'm not one to bash or intently criticize any person place or thing just wanted to share our experience with hand in hand.
