Where children and their parents are in good hands.
Hand in Hand Child Care Society offers school age care and preschool programs at local elementary schools that support the needs of the whole family.
Every family has different child care needs. Our school age care programs allows for the flexibility of paying only for the days you need every month. Our preschools allow for a variety of days and times with competitive rates.
With 15 licensed locations for school age care and 6 preschools at public schools in Abbotsford, we are in a neighbourhood near you.
We believe all children deserve high-quality, affordable child care that meets their social, emotional, cognitive, physical, and creative needs.
School Age Care
Blending Active and Creative Play for Children Aged 5-12
We believe that children are naturally curious, capable and full of potential with their own ideas that allow their unique qualities to shine and grow.
Play-Based Early Learning Education for Children Aged 3-5
Play is the "work" of all children. Through play, children interact with, explore, and make sense of the world around them whether playing alone or in a group setting.
I love Hand in Hand because it's really fun and it's a really nice place to stay after school and in mornings. I have lots of friends from school.
Owen, Grade 2
It's been a pleasure bringing my daughter to Hand in Hand. The staff are warm and welcoming, and she's enjoyed her time.
A Happy Parent
Hand in Hand is caring, it's nice, and everyone helps. The important thing is, it's where I belong. Hand in Hand is my home.
