• How to Enroll Your Child at Heart Prints?

  • NEW HeartPrints Story Time !!!

  • Using current research about children’s development and learning, HeartPrints has designed an early learning program that reflects the principles and guidelines established by the National Association for the Education of Young Children.

    Based on a developmental approach, the curriculum focuses on the whole child and fosters social, emotional, cognitive, physical, and aesthetic development. The latest research about early literacy and numeracy learning in young children guides the day-to-day curriculum experiences in the center. In the area of social and emotional development, a primary focus is to help children learn to manage their feelings and use conflict management skills with the support of a caring and nurturing environment.

    Heart Prints Center for Early Education is an organization that strives for a more peaceful world by involving young children, their families and their teachers in a process of self-directed, lifelong learning which will encourage young children to think clearly and creatively, to discover cultural and aesthetic values, to respond sensitively to others, to manage conflict respectfully, and to recognize they are members of the worldwide community.

  • HeartPrints is an early education experience for young children that celebrates creativity, exploration and strong relationships.

    Connections with the teachers, other children and families build strong bonds at HeartPrints. These bonds help children to understand how to ask questions, solve problems, collaborate and to share responsibility in their learning. Families and children become a part of a dynamic community that reflects academic excellence and respect for the natural world. Children express their knowledge, ideas and emotions through the arts and a responsive curriculum that reflects their interests.

    HeartPrints offers a beautiful and engaging environment.

    The spacious and uncluttered classes are located in a LEED building and the outside spaces allow for much exploration. Inside rich and interesting materials beckon children to investigate. We invite children to use play as an essential tool to make sense of their world.

    The HeartPrints community is one of respectful collaboration and learning.

    With the program influenced by Reggio, Montessori and High Scope, students and teachers alike immerse themselves in the discoveries that inquiry-based learning fosters and the joy of sharing that learning. A partnership evolves with families and the school because the language of learning comes from the children and the children complete the connection between home and school.

    HeartPrints offers a developmental approach to early education that benefits the "whole" child.

    Children take part in yoga, foreign language instruction, strong STEAM programs and opportunities to understand the natural world around them. Learning is everywhere!

    • As many of you know, I love my job. The staff and students inspire me daily. As I am sitting in my office today, 2 staff members are discussing the plans for a special Under the Sea program we are offering on Wednesdays in February. Here is the quote, “could you pick up 6 un-gutted squid, one octopus tentacle, and one closed shell clam”. “I will look into renting some scuba gear and a tank”. It doesn’t get better than that! If only I could join the class. Can’t wait to see the Marvel in their eyes.

    • My son Noah is a Type 1 Diabetic and is diagnosed with Special Needs. Heart Prints is not your ordinary school, it is extremely special and has an amazing staff! The staff here have always nurtured the growth and development both socially and educationally of my son. Our family is so grateful to have found such a competent group of caring individual that are truly invested in each individual child that walks through their doors!

    • Our time in ‘Come Play with Me’ made the transition to Preschool seamless at two and a half years old; in fact, the only tears that were shed occurred at the end of the day when my daughter didn’t want to leave. There is something new going on at Heartprints every day from the activities set out to the carefully planned art projects to the fun sensory bins and homemade Playdoh to the holiday celebrations. The best part is that we both wake up excited to go to preschool, and for me, that is the most important!

    • Heart Prints has been a most amazing experience for my daughter! In her two years at the school she has developed better self confidence, more responsibility for her learning and has the ability to seek answers to her questions with efficiency. The talented educators provide rigor that challenges and motivates at the same time and they are nurturing and encouraging all the while. The most impressive thing for me is the way that the teacher(s) truly know my child and that enables them to bring out her best.
