Handprints ST IVES

Handprints St Ives was the first Handprints centre and opened in November 2014. It opened after many months of searching for the perfect property. It was a purpose built centre close to the local school and opposite the local sports field. Handprints St Ives was the long-awaited dream of our Managing Director Julia and where the philosophy and vision of our company began.


Handprints St Ives has since been operating at a high standard and the children, families and educators are very much at home. In June of 2015, Handprints St Ives received the highest rating by the Department of Education of Exceeding the National Quality Framework. This was a wonderful achievement and a testament to the hard work and dedication of the Handprints educators.


Handprints St Ives caters for children from six weeks to six years. It is a thirty place centre with low numbers across each of the three classrooms and a focus on caring for every individual child. It is a beautiful place for children to begin their learning journey.


Meet Alex, Our St Ives Director:

Meet Billy Bunny :


I have been a loved emotional support bunny since the centre opened in November 2014. I love to eat hay, along with occasional treats of carrot, celery, broccoli and even some little pieces of fruit, however too much of these things is not good for me. I like to lay in my run outside in the sun and nap and have cuddles with the children. I also enjoy having sleepovers for the weekend or over holidays, so if you’re interested in having a quiet and fluffy houseguest who brings their own overnight bag with all food and litter supplied, feel free to ask our Director!
