Private Preschool Open enrollment for the 2019-2020 school year.
We accept Care 4 Kids
You do not need to be a Wolcott resident to attend.
We are family owned and operated.
We are open from 9am-2pm please contact us to make an appointment to meet the staff and see the facility.
We offer high quality education to our youngest learners and prepare them for future academic success. We provide a hands on learning experience with a Montessori style of teaching. Our students are provided with individualized attention and therefore we limit our enrollment to meet the needs of our students.
We have created a welcoming space where students feel safe and eager to learn. We provide a private school atmosphere, where students are not confined to one room throughout the day as seen in other traditional preschools. We have a separate indoor play space when weather does not allow us usage of our outdoor playground and playscape. We also provide students with a separate art/crafting room. Here at Happy Hands Prep we like to encourage students to get use to transitioning from rooms and hallways as to prepare them for larger public/private school settings.
Please also take a look at our website www.happyhandsprep.com and follow us on facebook to see the exciting things we do each week.

We are a State licensed preschool with highly qualified CT licensed K-6 teachers. Teachers are certified in first aid, CPR, and Med certified.
We offer small class room sizes 8 students to 1 teacher, in most preschools its 10 students to 1 teacher, we find the smaller class allows better interaction and better education for the students.
We are committed to providing high quality care; a place where your child can grow in all areas of development - social, emotional, physical, and cognitive. This is a place where your child will receive the love and care to support building self esteem, independence, and success.

We follow a Montessori approach to teaching as well as good old fashion hand to head and heart approach for our early readers and writers.
We are VERY hands on as this is the best way for our young eager learners.
Outdoor play ALL YEAR LONG....Yes we take our students outside even in the winter and sometimes in the rain (with appropriate weather gear provided by parents) Because we feel what is better than dancing in the rain or building a snowman with your friends and teacher. We will always discuss this prior to the day of so students and parents are prepared. On those not so good days outside we have a large in door play room, so your child will not be in the same room all day. As well we have a separate art room for the children.
BOTTOM LINE: WE WORK HARD! We are always working for our students and families and never stop. We stay on top of parent communication so you will never have to wonder or worry. As a Head Teacher Mrs. Keri accepts text messages, phone calls or emails anytime and ALL the time. We stay on top of student achievement and will often reach out to parent to share the news and enjoyment of student success. We treat our Student like our own children and it will always show that our students come first!
