Dr. Valaida Wise, former Head of School, explains the importance of early childhood education


The mission of The Harbor School is to develop the mind and the creative spirit.

We believe that children are diverse learners and achieve success by working in a setting that promotes learning, self-expression and creativity. Children are encouraged to question, experiment, explore, take risks and assume responsibility in the world around them. In this way, The Harbor School fosters the child's continuing love of learning and a respect for the uniqueness of each individual.

Our community of families and the School's entire professional staff work to provide a positive school environment where children feel safe, nurtured and respected.
