Open Hands Preschool
Learn, Grow, Achieveā€¦ Be Ready for Kindergarten!!

   Open Hands Preschool was established as a ministry by First United Methodist Church in 2004. Open Hands serves the Clay County area to provide students with academic learning, Christian values, free tutoring, and hands on learning-  all in a church setting. The Open Hands curriculum has been designed using Indiana State Standards and teachers collaborate with Clay Community Schools to plan the best learning program for the 3-5 year old student.

   Chris Pestoff, a graduate of ISU, has been the director of Open Hands for 13 years and has 36 years of teaching experience. Candace Deal, a graduate of Northview High School, and former instructor at the Brazil YMCA, is the teaching assistant. Chris and Candace will provide a safe, loving, and creative preschool environment for your child.
