Harcourt Preschool

​Harcourt Preschool is located within a small rural community. We value and respect the diversity of our community and provide a safe and stimulating learning environment for children.

Our program is based upon the understanding that young children learn best when engaged in play. We foster children’s innate curiosity and love of learning by providing an environment that is rich in natural materials and resources.

Our educators are passionate, enthusiastic and enjoy their work. We encourage children’s sense of wonder and curiosity as they explore their world.
