Nurturing the Child, Nourishing the Community

Har Shalom Preschool & Kindergarten (HSPK) is a Montessori-Inspired learning community serving children aged three to six years. Our curriculum provides a foundation of social-emotional and academic skills within a nurturing, non-competitive environment.

Outdoor Play is an important part of our world. Children love to imagine on our natural playground, plant and harvest fruits and vegetables in the organic garden, and sled on the hills when the outdoors becomes a winter wonderland.

The diversity of our student families creates an inspiring, multicultural environment. Children at Har Shalom enjoy sharing celebrations, languages, and cultures with each other. Jewish holidays are celebrated throughout the year filled with fun, age appropriate curriculum and events.

What is Montessori-Inspired?

The Montessori philosophy is a wonderful, supportive teaching method for the primary years. Children’s sensitive periods of interest are individualized and not restricted by birth age. The “inspired” piece is a significant factor of our dedication to the individual child. Additional early childhood philosophies are integrated to ​provide a variety of pathways in support of the learning journey. Children are not fit into a mold at Har Shalom; we honor each child’s learning path.

From Our Parents

See what our parents have said about their children's experience at HSPK.

We are so grateful to Har Shalom and all of the wonderful teachers. We were so lucky to have such a warm, nurturing environment for our two young children. The teachers really appreciated each child individually, and allowed them to grow and blossom in their own ways and at their own pace. We could not have asked for a more loving, safe, family-like first school for our kids. It's been a wonderful 5 years, and we will miss it!
