Little Hands, Session 2


Grief Support for Preschoolers and Kindergartners

Session Two

Little Hands at Hamilton's is a grief program especially for preschool and Kindergarten aged children, held periodically throughout the year. Little Hands is designed to help children begin to recognize and understand the many feelings associated with the death of someone loved. With adult support, children can continue to discover and develop lifelong skills for coping with loss as a part of life. 

At Little Hands, children have the opportunity to interact with others their own age that have experienced the death of someone very dear to them. Through play, stories, games, songs, talking about feelings, art and conversations with a bunny puppet named "Hamilton," they find a comfortable place to express their thoughts and feelings. This program is available to all children in our community at no charge.
