Little Hands has been such a big part of our family's life. From day one their staff has been accommodating and reliable. During COVID, going back to work has left us with mixed emotions. Little Hands has kept us informed with any safety and health updates as they arise. This makes us feel confident that our children are safe and happy. Plus, through the use of their parent/teacher communication app, we know what activities our kids are engaged in throughout the day. As an educator, I appreciate the effort that goes into planning each of their centres. They take children’s' interests into consideration and create a variety of educational and fun activities for their students. Most importantly, I am grateful that they are taking every precaution needed to ensure that the safety and well-being of each child is their number one priority.
Little Hands is a wonderful child care centre with kind and caring staff who always have the children’s best interest in mind. The teachers are consistently planning engaging activities that encourage the children to learn through exploration and play. I really like the fact that the preschool 2 room is made up of the older preschool children and is geared toward preparing these students for kindergarten.
The centre goes above and beyond by planning a lot of extra activities throughout the year, such as a summer BBQ, an outstanding Christmas concert, fun themed days, Mother and Father’s day breakfasts, as well as parent teacher interviews. The supervisors are very organized and amazing with communicating with parents regarding upcoming events, as well as answering questions over the phone or via email. The owner of Little Hands is very involved and is seen at the centre very frequently. He keeps classroom learning resources up to date and current for the children.
After starting out at a different day care centre and moving over to Little Hands, I have noticed my child’s confidence grow and we are both very happy that we made the switch to this centre. I would highly recommend Little Hands to anyone looking for a loving child care centre for their little ones!
Our child has been attending Little Hands for 5+ years and we love the centre. Our child has been in the Little Hands infant / toddler / preschool programs and has also enjoyed the summer programs and the before and after school care program.
Each stage of our child's development and "graduation" to each program has brought questions, concerns and new challenges as is to be expected! The current supervisor has always actively heard any of our questions or concerns regarding our child's care and individual needs. Any concerns that we have experienced have been always been properly addressed. We have truly loved several of the staff over the years and been happy and at home at Little Hands. We would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for child care!
In February 2014 we had enrolled our little girl, 1 Year old at the time, at Little Hands after extended research of available day cares in Milton. Right away we had realized that we now have extended family that cares about our daughter’s well-being at all times. Even when she started school 3 years later, Little Hands made sure that she is well taken care of before and after school.
Both our kids are there and having developed a strong bond with almost all the teachers in both centers, I know for sure that I am leaving my kids in a safe loving place where they are happy at all times.
I would like to express my sincere gratitude and appreciation for all the staff, supervisors and owners at Little Hands Daycare that have welcomed both my boys with open hearts.
Having come from a previous daycare that my older son was very reluctant to attend, Little Hands made his transition very easy and he has enjoyed every day here since. All the staff from every classroom has made an effort to get to know my sons and treat them like their own children.
Little Hands has met all of our family needs from hands on childcare to accommodating special requests and has gone above and beyond to make our boys feel welcomed and at home.
I have and will continue to recommend Little Hands Daycare as one of the best child care facilities in Milton.
Despite the fact that I had to find a daycare centre in a very short time frame because my family daycare provider fell through, Little Hands Daycare Centre was the best thing that ever happened to my family. The kind, caring, hands on staff were helpful with the transition from my kids being home with me daily to new faces of teachers and friends. The facilities were always clean and tidy which is impressive for the amount of little feet that were there daily
My kids quickly learned their routines and schedules and were truly happy at the end of the day. The catered meals were even a hit with my kids. They ate better at the centre than they did at home some days! They even offer fun meals at holidays.
Little Hands offers many activities and programs throughout the day. When my daughter came home saying “Ola” from learning it in Spanish class, it made me laugh as it was so cute coming from this little person. Music class was a big hit with both of my children. They would be at the dinner table or in the car singing a new song that I remembered from being a kid but had long forgotten about it. The summer programs are also great. There are field trips starting in preschool and my kids both loved having their first bus rides on the school bus. When my son reach kindergarten, he stayed with Little Hands for their before and after school program. He enjoyed taking the bus to and from school each day. His teacher actually raved to me that Little Hands was the most organized of all of the bus drop offs.
The exceptionally caring, understanding, hands on, and always friendly staff were people that I will never forget and were people that helped me to raise my kids into the people I am proud of each day. The manager, Adrianna is always organized, quick to respond and a wonderful person to deal with. She was a shining light whenever I needed something.
We unfortunately moved out of the area or we would still be at Little Hands. I would, without a doubt, highly recommend Little Hands Daycare Centre to any family.
Our time with Little Hands draws quickly to a close as Calum's last day is Friday, August 1. It is with sincere mixed feelings that we are moving on. Calum will be entering grade 1 at a local school in September, and attending the before and after school program in the school will logistically be good for our family. However, it has not been lost on any of us the value that Little Hands has given to our family, especially Calum.
I can't thank you and the staff at Little Hands enough for such a safe, warm and welcoming environment. Calum adapted so well, quickly making his second home at Little Hands. Many staff and not to mention you, stand out in particular to me. I am sure there are others with whom Calum has developed special relationships and who we have not had the privilege in meeting.
To all of you we just want to say a very big thank you and perhaps our paths will cross again. There's always summer camp ;)

To Whom It May Concern,
I am a mother of two children who have been attending Little Hands Daycare for the last three years. Both my children are in the school age room, which is before and after school care and also PA Days.
I will admit that I was a little worried at first. The reason for my worry is my oldest child has severe special needs and I wasn't sure how he would handle the day care, but more importantly, how they would handle him! I must say, I worried for no reason! The staff, management and owners have been absolutely wonderful with both my children. They have never once made me feel like they were unable to handle my son's needs at all. In fact, they include him in everything they do which is great for both my son and daughter, but also to the other children. The reality is, all of us are different and we need to appreciate everyone for who they are. Little Hands makes sure that every child is cared for and respected.
The staff and owners have supported our family so much with their kind words, gestures and sincere understanding over these last three years. I would highly recommend Little Hands to other families as I personally feel that they sincerely care about ALL the children in their care.
