"The first few years of a child's life are the most important. I love helping them discover the skills they will use forever."

- Danette Allrich — Owner, Holding Hands Childcare
 
 

Welcome to the Holding Hands Childcare official website. You will find contact and other information, as well as news & updates to keep you up to date with all our plans. Scroll through this page to see an overview and our mission.

I love my job and want to create a safe, loving, nurturing environment where your child will be learning relationship skills all day long, through the way that a child learns—through play!

 


 
Danette has been our daycare provider since when our first baby was almost two years old. Now we have three kids who have been going to her ever since. Danette is one person we can truly say has a passion for kids—my kids love her and we are at peace knowing they will be well taken care of. We thank God for bringing her into our lives!
— Brenda & Joe M. - Clients for 5+ Years
 
What I believe sets Danette and her childcare apart from others is her overall love for each child that walks through her doors. You can tell that she really cares about the children. I recommend her to everyone I talk to.
— Amy T. – Client for 6 Years
 
We are so glad that the kids are so happy with Danette. It means a lot to us that they have such great days!
— Christine & Ed D. - Clients for 7 Years
Danette provides a loving environment in which children can learn and play. She teaches using positive interactions, including modeling, redirection and calm, respectful interventions. In short, Danette is the kind of person that I would have wanted my children to have had the privilege of spending their daycare time.
— Penny M. – Speech/Language Pathologist
My son loves going to Holding Hands Childcare. He started going when he was just 4 months old when I went back to work after maternity leave. He is loved and cherished there by Danette and he so enjoys his friends and playing with all the fun toys and going on adventures. I feel good knowing that he is safe and taken care of. Going to Holding Hands has also helped us feel more a part of my neighborhood community and my son gets to interact with all kinds of awesome kids and grow and develop in a wonderful environment.

Holding Hands Childcare

Where Your Child Can Find Joy. . .

Our new space is dedicated solely to childcare (I don't reside there). The facility's centerpiece is a fenced-in yard with a great backyard for exploring and daily outdoor play when weather permits.

I participate in the Provider's Choice Federal Food Program and always plan nutritious meals and snacks. I serve fruits and vegetables daily; I never offer juice as a substitute for the real thing. Specifically, I pay close attention to my menus and would never serve anything I wouldn't make for my own family.

I am currently involved with Parent Aware and am working toward achieving a four-star rating. This is a completely voluntary program that rates childcare programs throughout the state of Minnesota.

I use The Creative Curriculum along with ECW/Early Childhood Workshop, which is used by Saint Paul Public Schools. I introduce activities that help children in the areas of Social/Emotional, Physical, Cognitive and Language Development. We have a Dramatic Play area, Block area, Writing Table, Art, Reading Corner and a Quiet Corner.

Above all. . .

Kids get to choose to play in the areas that give them the most joy!
