All About Harllee
At N.W. Harllee Early Childhood Center, our mission is to provide a research based, high quality, developmentally appropriate environment that turns on the minds of our students leaving them with a thirst for learning. Our students receive a quality education that will equip them with the skills to become functional, literate citizens in their community. We empower students to learn by providing a rigorous curriculum, promoting collaboration, and allowing students to be stakeholders in their own education. Our guiding principle is learning through play and meaningful interactions. These interactions allow the students to use critical thinking skills to employ all elements of S.T.R.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Reading/ wRiting, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) on a daily basis. We have a partnership with Momentous Institute to further train our staff on how to best support our students' social emotional learning. Social Emotioal instruction through Settle Your Glitter and Conscious Discipline is taught to students and embedded in their encounters throughout the day.
We are a Two-Way Dual Language Campus. This designation allows our students to become biliterate and bilingual in Spanish even if they are not Native Spanish Speakers.
The school staff connects with parents and the community to ensure student success. We conduct home visits throughout the school year as a part of our family home connection. Parents are valued partners and are encouraged to participate in school activities. Our staff hosts monthly support workshops for parents on subjects from health to homework. Other parental involvement opportunities include assisting in classrooms, participating in PTA, and serving on the SBDM and Campus Improvement Planning committee.
