Welcome to Hand and Hand Birkenhead.

Our purpose-built centre is a home away from home, with small numbers (10 children under 2 and 20 children over 2). This enables our teachers to build strong, respectful relationships with the children and families attending our service.

Each age group has their own room, fitted and resourced to meet their specific learning needs and our outdoor area is a communal space providing plenty of opportunity for siblings / cousins and children of different ages to build and maintain connections and share learning opportunities.

We maintain a high adult : child ratio across our centre, providing extra support teachers for each room to ensure time for quality interactions and meaningful learning experiences.

Children are supported for a successful transition to school through our carefully constructed Kura (School) Curriculum, designed to ensure you child is set for success in their education journey.

We provide regular excursions in our ‘Little Explorers’ van to a variety of community sites to extend children’s interests and provide new opportunities for learning.

We also bring the community to the centre, with regular events to enhance our curriculum and support our teachers in providing new experiences for children.

With our open door policy you are welcome to pop in any time for a visit and to learn more about how Hand and Hand can support your child’s early learning.

We look forward to meeting you.
