My daughter wakes up and immediately asks, “Do I have school today?!” When I tell her she does, she shouts for joy!! Her joy is my joy. She absolutely loves Little Hands Little Feet and so do I. Over the years my three kids have been to numerous preschools in the various places we have lived. None of the other schools even remotely compare to Little Hands Little Feet and this is not because they were not good. It’s because Little Hands Little Feet is exceptional. This school was Debbie’s dream and it is indeed a dream come true. Her passion, bliss, commitment and love are also embodied and expressed by everyone who teaches there. Every day is engaging and delightful – filled with play, music, learning, and art. There my daughter’s world has expanded, her social skills have developed, her mind is stimulated, her imagination is sparked, and her confidence has increased. She has truly flourished there and for this I am so grateful. It is sheer joy to see her heart dance and spirit soar every day at Little Hands Little Feet!

My son is in the fours program with Ms. Debbie! We used to go to World Cup in Chappaqua for the 2’s and 3’s. From the minute you step one foot in the door you feel like you are home at Little Hands, Little Feet. You feel welcomed and loved within seconds. The gym is huge with lots of different types of bikes to assist with gross motor development. The outdoor playground gives them ample room to run and slide!
The academics are stellar! One of kind! I am a special education teacher and also was an assistant principal; I have very high expectations of a pre-school program. I visited over 20 schools in the area and not one had everything I wanted except Little Hands, Little Feet. I wanted a loving, nurturing, academics and indoor and outdoor space. Little Hands, Little Feet has met my expectations and then some! I’ve never seen my son so excited for school everyday and he even wants to go on the weekends!!
My son who was a non-reader (4 years old) and a non-writer, he did not even know how to write his name, has learned to not only write his name (from tracing highlighted marker, playing in rice and beans-he doesn’t like Play-Doh) to tracing dots to just writing words on his own during free play. He not only can write words but he can read 30 sight words from the Dolch word lists. He can read books without using picture prompts. This progress is just from September till today 11/17/17! The amount of care, love and amazing lessons my son has been exposed to is amazing. Many class trips around the local area (Trailside Museum, Apple Cider Making, Fire Department visiting, Apple Picking). It has just been clearly an amazing experience and the year isn’t over. He can explain the story of the Pilgrims and Indians, sing amazing and creative songs, explain about the parts of an apple and pumpkin, etc.
Also, the enrichment programs from Little Explorers (science) and Passport Express (social studies-traveling around) my son has not only learned the information, has applied it in his daily life and has recreated the lessons at home with me.
I know I can’t go back in time, but I wish he had started here in the 2s. There is no program like Little Hands, Little Feet.

Miss Debbie and her team are a dedicated group of educators who have one goal - to nurture and develop the creative and logical mind of your children. My only regret is that I haven't found this school sooner since my daughter joined the school for the 4's.

I have my both girls who attend Little Hands, Little Feet Preschool since this September, and it's been great. Miss Debbie (4's class) and Miss Ann and Carmen (2's class) have been nothing but great to our family My girls love to go to school and want to be there even on weekends. You are treated like an extended family in this school. There are tons of activities, amazing field trips, and museum visits that make for many beautiful memories of your children's preschool years.
My daughter, who is 4, can spell her name and tries to read and spell words all the time. The enrichment classes offered after school are also great with a great balance of fun and learning opportunities such as Dance, Science and language classes to name a few.
I am beyond happy to have found this school and will definitely recommend it to other to come and see for themselves.

We are so glad that we found Little Hands, Little Feet preschool. Miss Debbie and the staff are the warmest most caring group of professionals you'll ever find. As a first-time mom, sending my child off to school with very few words was very scary. I interviewed many schools along the way, but something was off with each one of them-either the staff wasn't warm, the playground was too small, academics were lacking or the staff did not understand the developmental needs of a two-year-old.
As an educator having very high expectations, I knew I would never find a school that had everything I was looking for and then I met Miss Debbie! Her excitement, enthusiasm and passion for children and her program was so contagious and sincere. I knew we found our home within minutes! My search was over! Her program had everything I wanted, ample time for socialization and imaginative play, loving caring professional staff members, developmentally appropriate lessons, activities and crafts. The children put on the most wonderful holiday show and come home at the end of the year with an amazing portfolio of artwork. I had tears of excitement running down my face as she described her program and all that made it unique. I can go on and on, but I'll stop. We will forever love Miss Debbie and her phenomenal staff and will be part of her alumni events for years to come!
