Little Hands Garden School welcomes preschool students ages 24 months-5 years in small classes with a low teacher-student ratio. Students experience Little Hand’s outstanding nature-based curriculum including gardening, farm animals, storytelling, drama and seasonal-based arts and music. Delicious, vegetarian snacks feature fruits and vegetables students grow, harvest and prepare at the school. Spanish language enrichment is also included.
Little Hand’s Director, Erin Cowan, is an accomplished artist and holds a Masters degree in Education from the University of California, Santa Cruz, as well as an Oregon Teaching Credential. She taught at Richmond Immersion School in Portland prior to opening Little Hands preschool in 2009. She is passionate about play-based learning, and is thrilled to now be able incorporate Spanish language activities into the curriculum.
The original Hawthorne school was featured in Willamette Week’s 2011 Finder Magazine as one of “the best kept secrets in the Mt. Tabor neighborhood.” Our three schools are housed in classic Portland homes on large lots with ample outdoor space for adventuring! Fill out the form on our contact page to schedule a tour!
