Summer at Harker Preschool is designed to provide a rich and rewarding program for campers ages 3-5.
Harker Summer Preschool
In our summer preschool program, early learning offerings for 3-, 4- and young 5-year-olds emphasize hands-on learning, intentional play and developmentally appropriate classroom activities. Sessions are open to the public and currently enrolled preschool families. Children must turn 3 by Dec. 1, 2017 and be under 6 by August 2017 to be eligible for our program.
2017 Session Dates

With daily classroom activities, weekly special events, and a variety of environments that inspire intentional play, preschoolers will enjoy plenty of opportunities to create, discover and explore!
Each session will focus on three specialty areas:

- STEM (science, technology, engineering, math).
Weekly workshops are designed for maximum exploration and exceptional fun! Children benefit from exposure to complex experiences and find inspiration in our cottages and unique outdoor spaces:
- large classrooms
- expansive lawn
- garden and farm spaces to provide a variety of learning experiences.
Healthy & Nourishing Lunch Program
Our preschool food program, available for an additional fee, features healthy, fresh and seasonal foods that support children’s development and healthy eating habits. At lunch, learning continues - students practice important social skills like selecting foods, practicing proper eating etiquette and engaging in mealtime conversations with friends. A morning and afternoon snack is included in tuition for all full-day students.
Outstanding faculty and staff are one of the hallmarks of The Harker School. All staff are carefully selected to provide a positive experience for the students.
Campus & Facilities
Our beautiful and expansive 8-acre campus is designed specifically for our littlest learners. With cottage classrooms, a farm, STEM lab and outdoor play areas, there’s so much for your summer camper to explore.
