Our school year begins before Labor Day and ends the third week of May. We follow the Williamson County Schools calendar.
We follow the Tennessee Early Learning Developmental Standards for all ages. These standards apply in the following areas: Speech & Language Development, Early Literacy, Math & Science, Social Studies, Creative Arts, Social & Emotional Development, and Physical Development. Each classroom curriculum is designed to stimulate growth through enjoyable and developmentally appropriate activities. Our center-based approach to learning helps to facilitate learning through play activities.
Our program is designed to enhance children’s development in the following areas: creativity, self—expression, decision-making, problem-solving, responsibility, independence, and reasoning.
Each day we have Bible stories that are woven throughout the day. These stories are on a very simplified level, dealing with basics such as the Creation, Baby Moses, Noah, Baby Jesus, God’s love for each of us, etc. Our centers and activities will have pieces of the story to help reinforce them during their center and play time. Teachers encourage children to pray at meals and at other times within their day. They also introduce memory verses and encourage memorization. Students and teachers participate in a monthly chapel time – JAM – Jesus and Me. Most importantly, children are taught that God made each of us and that we are loved and indeed special to Him. Each child is a primary concern for us and is greatly strengthened because of this spiritual emphasis.
Harpeth Hills Preschool maintains a rich history which began in 1971, when a Mother’s Day Out program first opened its doors, serving twenty-three children. Over the years, our school has become a top-rated licensed preschool program and has expanded to include 23 teachers and staff members who meet the needs of over 100 students in 9 classrooms. We have a reputation for preparing students well to enter kindergarten in public and private schools in the area. It is an honor and blessing to serve each family who joins our community at Harpeth Hills Preschool!
