Being new to town, we had no idea which preschool to choose. We wanted one that had not only a great reputation but also would be a good fit for our daughter. After visiting 3 others in the area and feeling like something was missing from each, I walked into Hancock, met the staff, and instantly felt a connection. I was overcome by a warm, caring, nurturing environment which was very natural and real. My gut instinct has been right so far and seeing our daughter jumping up and down saying "I'm going to school today!" is so heart-warming.
