Hand In Hand Early Learning Program

Imagine a place where…

  • Every child is nurtured with respect and is a treasured resource.
  • Creativity is valued and expressed through play, art, dance and music.
  • Technology, nature gardens and outdoor experiences are an integral part of the learning experience.
  • Children from all walks of life learn together simply as friends.

Hand In Hand reflects more than just a state-of-the art early learning program for children and families. It is a place where children of all abilities learn, play and grow together to develop understanding, acceptance and caring for one another. Developing the foundation for future success, children from 6 weeks of age to five years who have delays in one or more areas of development and those who are typically developing learn side by side in 10 spacious classrooms. Both the indoor and outdoor environments work together to provide a variety of opportunities and experiences all children deserve. The early learning program is fully licensed by the Department of Human Resources and nationally accredited by NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children).

Another initiative of United Ability’s Early Learning Program is the Childcare Enhancement with a Purpose program. Realizing that only a limited number of children would benefit from United Ability’s inclusive early learning program, the Childcare Enhancement with a Purpose program was developed to train, consult and provide technical assistance for community childcare teachers, enabling them to better provide an inclusive environment for children with special needs. Training occurs at over 40 facilities throughout the state each year, greatly enhancing childcare opportunities for children with disabilities.

Tours of our Early Learning Program are available every Thursday morning at 11 a.m.  To schedule a tour, or if you would like more information, please call us at 205-944-3939 or email us at elpadmissions@unitedability.org.
