We incorporate a proven curriculum throughout various play, technology, music, and science sessions. Our techniques encourage curiosity and exploration in children. Our modern yet cozy facility serves as the right environment to deliver a fun learning experience!
The pairing of Abeka curriculum with S.T.E.A.M. learning is a beautiful combination. We have found that a well balanced schedule and program prepares our children to be able to move through the ups and downs of life with tools for success. We are also proud to offer Brightwheel, a tool that significantly helps teachers & administrators manage their classrooms, observe & track the children, communicate with you, and share photos and videos. This tool makes it easy for parents to check in, get updates, and pay tuition.
We use the Abeka Curriculum as a foundation for our classes. Abeka is a Christian creative curriculum which incorporates music, finger play, and colorful worksheets to help our little ones grasp the basics in phonics, reading, arithmetic, and writing. During this time of the day, students learn the empowering values of self control, being part of a group, concentration, and socialization. See why we love it!
S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) Learning (AKA STEM learning) is a hands on approach to freedom in investigation, joys of discovery, and the love of learning. Children will have age appropriate lessons which explore plants and animals, the art of building and designing, and the fun to be had in mathematical challenges. To extend and support children’s learning, our expert S.T.E.A.M. Teachers make close observations and pose questions to encourage children to explore further and reach their own conclusions.
Harrison Street Academy strives to provide a warm, caring and stimulating environment that prepares children to be leaders in a S.T.E.A.M. powered world. As a Christian preschool, Harrison Street Academy promotes the development of wholesome values: honesty, integrity, fairness, and caring for others more than self. Virtues that must be taught, practiced, and lived-out daily. Our program graduates will have received caring guidance and a firm foundation not only in academics, but in life and relational skills as well.
"My 2.5 year old twin boys love Harrison Street! They are always excited to go to school. The boys' vocabulary has grown exponentially even though they have only been attending for a little over a month. Communication with the teachers has been excellent and I absolutely love getting daily updates, which include pictures and videos, on the bright wheel app. It took a great weight off my shoulders to know my boys didn't have to be potty trained before starting. I very much appreciate that Harrison Street's staff truly cares for my boys and I am thrilled we have found such a great fit for our family." - Becky
My children went to HSA for years, including both preschool and kindergarten. HSA became part of the family over the years, their care and attentiveness was apparent from the onset of the boys attending. By the time my oldest son finished the preschool as well as kindergarten program, he was ahead of his peers in math and reading. I referred countless family and friends, and would recommend the school 1000% over. 5/5, take a tour - meet the staff and teachers, you won’t regret it! —Heather M.
