Letter from the Director

January 9, 2017

Dear Parents,

Welcome to Pre-Registration for Har Shalom Preschool & Kindergarten’s 2017-2018 school year!

Har Shalom Preschool & Kindergarten (HSPK) is proud to offer a nurturing multi-age environment (preschool, pre-k, kindergarten) in an atmosphere brimming with opportunities for hands-on learning and social/emotional growth. The Montessori Primary Classroom is a fruitful environment where children naturally learn with and from each other as they grow into thoughtful, intentional members of the school community and the larger world. Our Montessori-Inspired Children’s House is arranged with care to be an inviting, enriching, non-competitive atmosphere where your child is honored as an individual by kind, respectful teachers.

HSPK provides two enrichment classes during the school week. Our music program includes a variety of music genre, creative movement and an introduction to musical instruments in a fun-filled, age-appropriate environment. Our Yoga program strengthens muscles and introduces inner peace using exceptional literature as the children happily learn the Yoga poses.

HSPK is committed to good health and nutrition. The children enjoy outdoor, active play in the morning and in the afternoon. Each year, a variety of fruits and vegetables are planted in our outdoor classroom and play area gardens. The children care for and harvest chemical free food to use for nutritious baking and/or raw organic snacks. This allows for healthful refueling and the exceptional lessons of the “Farm to Table” philosophy.

HSPK is highly devoted to professional development. This fundamental commitment allows our teachers to integrate the most supportive environment academically, socially and emotionally during your child’s essential early years. Each year, teachers participate in course and/or conference work that is dedicated to the cornerstones of our program.
