Our graduates possess the intellectual capacity, self-knowledge, and good character to be difference-makers in our ever-changing world. The student journey begins with a toddler’s first experience with independence and ends with an Upper School student who has fully engaged in the education process, is inquisitive, responsible, and compassionate. Harborlight alumni know themselves and are ready to engage their world.

  • Authentic Montessori

    Harborlight is accredited by the American Montessori Society. Our curriculum and programs are grounded in Montessori philosophy, and our teachers are Montessori-trained practitioners.
  • Multiage Classrooms

    The multiage classroom is a core feature of Montessori. It creates a community where younger children learn from observing the older ones, whose learning is reinforced by sharing.
  • Three-Year Cycle

    The three-year cycle allows children to develop at their own pace and affords teachers the opportunity to nurture and guide their students over a significant period of time.
  • Personalized Instruction

    One size does not fit all. A Montessori teacher is able to focus on each child as an individual, because we know that all children differ in their learning styles.
  • Community Learning Partners

    Using the community as a classroom is an integral part of the Montessori experience. Harborlight works with a diverse group of community partners to create exciting leaning experiences.
  • Values, Diversity, Equity, Inclusion

    Harborlight is a diverse community where each person is respected for who they are and what they bring to the community.

    Cultural Festival

    On April 29th, 2023, we will be hosting our 5th Annual Cultural Fair at Harborlight!  It will be from 9-12 on our campus and is open to our community and the public.  Our Cultural Fair gives us the opportunity to cultivate cultural awareness and world peace and I am thrilled that we are planning our 5th fair after a few years break from COVID.  
    For the fair, teachers and parents transform our classrooms to a particular country with activities, decorations, food, costumes, and a souvenir for the children to take home.  Each visitor will have a passport to be stamped and we have flags hanging at each door to represent the country.  It is a wonderful community building event!  Along with the classrooms to visit, there will be an assembly at the end of the event (TBD) and a bake sale.  
    We are looking for volunteers to run “houses” (the countries represented in the classrooms), help with set up and clean up, donations for the bake sale, etc.  If you are interested in running a house, please contact Elisa PItkin at epitkin@harborlight.net
