We also desire to provide an even more comprehensive opportunity for children to grow in character and spirituality, and in living their lives of faith. This is the reason for the existence of St. Matthew School in Walled Lake and of Hearts and Hands Child Development Center in Wixom. Parents are invited to explore the many benefits of our school and childcare ministries, and to invest in their children’s future by becoming part of our St. Matthew School or Hearts and Hands family.

Hearts and Hands Child Development Center

Through their experiences at Hearts and Hands, children will grow in mind, body and spirit. We teach children that Jesus loves them and is their Lord and Savior. We create an environment for learning that teaches children to make good choices, decisions and sets them up for success.
