    Where students and families come together

    Hand-in-Hand Early Learning Center is a partnership school coordinated by Oak Harbor Public Schools and Oak Harbor Head Start.  Our staff pride themselves on creating a learning environment where young students, with the support of their families, can thrive. 

    All classes provide developmentally appropriate activities, materials and equipment in an effort to meet the needs of the children.  Our programs focus on the following areas:

    • Social/emotional
    • Self-help
    • Fine and gross motor skills
    • Cognition (thinking and learning)
    • Early literacy
    • Communication
    We also offer services for speech and language, and physical therapy/occupational therapy for eligible students. Find out if your child qualifies for free preschool services.

    Get all of the factual information about the upcoming Educational and Operations Levy


    Our levy has made a profound difference for students by providing what the state doesn’t consider “basic education” like athletics, arts, after school clubs, and other national award-winning programs. 

    This is just a replacement of our existing levy and there is no increase to the estimated tax rate. Please visit our website for more information and remember to vote on Feb. 9!
