Our Beliefs

WE BELIEVE we are in the Lord’s hands. He created us with His HANDS and loves each of us. He has written all our names in His Book of Life if we believe in Jesus as Savior and Lord.  


WE BELIEVE that Jesus took children seriously and called them to Himself, placed His HAND on them and blessed them, and said the Kingdom of Heaven belonged to those who were like children. 


WE BELIEVE that true learning occurs when the child can do things for himself/herself and have the activities in HAND along with freedom and boundaries, and an open work cycle.  


WE BELIEVE that parents are an essential part of education and should be encouraged, educated and embraced with a HAND-shake style partnership.  


WE BELIEVE that all of life is better HAND-IN-HAND, as parent to child, parent to instructor, instructor to child, child to child, parent to parent, and all to God.

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."

Matthew 22:37-39

Core Values


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.

Hand In Hand Christian Montessori is a Judeo-Christian educational institution where we nurture the whole child through body, mind, and spirit.
