If COVID-19 causes a parent to lose their job due or experience financial hardship and is unable to fulfill their obligation they will be released from the remainder of the contract. The release request must be in writing and attest to the fact of the request for release from the contract is due to Covid-19.
Likewise, Hand in Hand is committed to doing everything legally and ethically possible to hold class in person next year. We are committed to hands-on learning, faith-filled living and engaged community. If Covid-19 affects the school’s delivery method of education, the school has the right to change the arrangement. Parents will be able to choose to stay with the new delivery method or suspend their contract during the modified delivery time.
Furthermore, we are committed to delivering excellence in whatever scenario we are faced with and continuing the mission to advance the Kingdom of God through Christian Montessori by educating infants through adolescents to love, learn and lead. As a private school, our funding is almost exclusively dependent on the tuition we receive. Our costs do not decrease and the workload for our teachers increases when we move online. It is our hope that if there is another disruption that the vast majority of the families will continue to partner with us together.
Hand In Hand Christian Montessori
A New Kind of Educational Approach
Hand In Hand is a Christian Academy in Minnesota’s Twin Cities. Started in 1999 with a handful of parents in a summer camp, currently, our Christian Montessori program is one of the largest in the country with hundreds of active learners. Our Roseville campus offers Preschool through 12th grade and our Bloomington campus offers Preschool through 6th grade. We emphasize Christian teachings, the constructivist method, and a collaborative style in multi-aged, creative classrooms where education is being re-imagined everyday!
“The human hand, so delicate and so complicated,not only allows the mind to reveal itself but it enables the whole human being to enter into special relationships with its environment.
—Dr. Maria Montessori, Secret of Childhood
Why Choose Hand In Hand?
Hand In Hand has three core values that set our program apart from others.
We love Jesus. He is the center of who we are, why we educate, and what we teach. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. We bind this truth on the hearts and the hands of the children.
Learning is an active and constructive process. Constructivist education emphasizes hands-on involvement, critical thinking, problem solving, and innovative collaboration.
Believing that parents are the first and foremost teachers of their children, we work hand-in-hand with parents in a unique fashion as we partner in the education of the child.
