Our first annual talent show was a smashing success! We were wowed by the variety of acts -- singing, dancing, musical instruments, karate moves, and an unintentionally comedic "lion taming" act -- but we were especially impressed by the children's poise and confidence on stage! Thanks to all who organized, volunteered, and attended. We're already looking forward to next year!

This morning, our Parents Association hosted a thank you breakfast for our volunteers. Every parent or guardian at Harbor is a member of the PA, and 70% are active volunteers, which is remarkable. We love our community, and appreciate all you do!!!

If rehearsals are any indication, Wednesday's talent show is going to be a barn burner! Don't miss it!

Welcome to The Harbor School

from Kendra Sun-Alperin, Head of School

When The Harbor School opened its doors in 1973, the late Beverly Bonwit, founder, described a harbor as a safe place from which to prepare for a journey.  Today, Harbor continues to provide a safe, nurturing environment where children are encouraged to explore, inquire, and create.  We challenge and celebrate each child – each of whom is a unique individual, and therefore, a unique learner.

The early childhood years, ages 3-8, mark the first level of a child’s education, and arguably, the most critical.  The Harbor School provides a strong academic foundation, as well as a solid base in building character.  Our five anchors, which keep us grounded and serve as our guiding principles, are creativity, respect, independence, love, and caring.  

To support our commitment to differentiated instruction and individualized attention, each of our classes of 12-14 students is led by two experienced teachers.  Each teacher is dedicated to educating young children during the most important years of their lives. 

When children graduate from Harbor and begin the next step of their educational journeys, they are confident and prepared.  Our graduates move on to both excellent independent schools and public schools in the area.  The Harbor teachers and I work alongside families in this process of finding the best fit for each child. 

Whether this is your first time to our site or you are a regular visitor, we are glad that you are here. We invite you to read about our dynamic and innovative early childhood program and to contact us with any questions you may have. 

At The Harbor School, we believe that all children are brilliant. Your child's gifts and talents will have an opportunity to shine here as they learn, grow, imagine and create. Explore our website and then make an appointment to see firsthand the many qualities that make The Harbor School an outstanding place for young children.




Every Tuesday at 9:30am and by appointment.
