Hand In Hand's Mission is to Advance the Kingdom of God through Christian Montessori by reimagining education for infants through adolescents to love, learn and lead.
Jesus said, "You should love the Lord Thy God with all your heart, and all your soul, and all your mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it, you should love your neighbor as yourself."
We love Jesus. He is the center of who we are, why we educate, and what we teach. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. We bind this truth on the hearts and the hands of the children. We want children to LOVE God, themselves, and others as well.
Learning is an active and constructive process. Constructivist education emphasizes hands-on involvement, critical thinking, problem solving, organization, self-advocating. We want children to LEARN authentically for their entire lifetime.
Believing that parents are the first and foremost teachers of their children, we work hand-in-hand with parents in a unique fashion as we partner in the education of the child. We also want children to LEAD in collaborate efforts as well with others.
Dr. Maria Montessori was one of the first female doctors in Italy. Although misunderstood by her contemporaries and some today, she was a pioneer in her thoughts and actions toward children.
