What do you want for your preschooler? 

 

Consider what the arts and nature can provide! 

 

Children so fully engage in everything they do.  The worlds of art, music and nature provide a wealth of enriching, wholesome learning that your child will love!  And when kids love what they are learning, they learn to love learning!

Will your child eat cauliflower?  Lima beans?  Beets?  Broccoli?  Our preschoolers ask for seconds!

 

You will be amazed at what healthy foods our teachers can get your child to eat!  Snack time is a fun time to learn about new foods and try new things!  

Curriculum:

The acclaimed Musikgarten program our students and parents already know and love is the foundation of our curriculum.  Singing, movement, theatrics, playing instruments, and focused listening activities are the core of our developmentally appropriate program.  Your child's needs are well met in this holistic learning environment, and all the Kindergarten Readiness Skills are also covered.

Our preschoolers find writing so easy!  The simple approach of the Learning Without Tears writing program teaches the strokes by simplifying everything into two concepts.  Your child will be writing in no time at all!

Preschoolers are a wonder!  So many opportunities are experienced with their new special friends which help your child learn what it means to be a friend.  Self-care, manners, cleanliness, service to others, responsibility and teamwork are all part of your child's everyday routine at Harmony.  We see every situation as a learning opportunity and hope your child will, too. We strive to honor this special stewardship and see working with your child as a priviledge.

In "Home", your child learns music through exploring the sights and sounds of various habitats.  You will see the wonder in your preschooler's eyes as they get to see, hear, touch and feel live instrument demonstrations, play their part in instrument ensembles, hear patterns in songs, and read and write music notation!  You will delight together in all he is learning as you witness this growth during Parent Time and at home.

5-7 years
World

Your child will love World class!  It's such fun to explore a people and their culture through song, dance, and stories!  In World class, your school-aged child excites in making the connection from ear to page through reading, writing and playing songs. Students are so excited to play the glockenspiel and this reinforces their pattern vocabulary while refining fine motor skills needed to play piano, guitar, or any instrument. Children grow their rhythm and tonal patterns significantly this year, and they are so proud of what they can READ and PLAY!
