Our Story

A special place with a special story.

1991 - Harmony Preschool was founded by Jennae Sevvom. When you first meet her, you can tell right way she was meant to be a preschool teacher.

And you wouldn’t be the first to think so. In fact, that’s how Harmony’s story begins. When Jennae was working on her degree in education, one of her professors was so impressed with her abilities with young children that she encouraged her to concentrate on early childhood development.

After completing a student teaching internship at a preschool, Jennae was hooked. She began envisioning her own preschool. One that was small, welcoming, and in a community that valued learning. Eventually she found the perfect building, a home in north Boulder in desperate need of some TLC. Jennae spent every waking hour working on the building and navigating the city zoning and planning process.

1992 - With the city’s approval, the doors officially opened in August 1992. The school was fully enrolled with 20 students and had 3 teachers. And it has been filled with eager learners

1992 – Present Day - Ever since; expanding to 30 preschoolers and 5 teachers. Today, Harmony Preschool has become engrained in the Boulder community. It’s touched the lives of hundreds of preschoolers and their families.
And those families will be happy to tell you, they are Harmony’s strongest advocates.

Our Cores Values

Our 9 core values are incorporated into every moment of your child’s day.

With their teacher’s guidance, and through the role modeling of others, quality literature, well thought out lesson plans and classroom activities, children learn and practice the value of using Harmony’s 9 core values in their daily life in a variety of ways. Children are able to express their feelings, resolve conflicts, express true empathy, and feel empowered to interact with others in a meaningful way.

Our Philosophy

Children’s brains are little sponges. Let’s give them something wonderful to soak up.

Harmony Preschool is a high quality family and community based program that works hand in hand with parents to foster the optimum social, emotional and cognitive development for young children between the ages of 2.5 and 6 years.

At Harmony, we believe children grow and develop valuable skills when their classroom experiences are geared to their natural level of development. We accommodate the uniqueness of young children using a developmentally appropriate curriculum and learning materials for each individual child. At Harmony, we avoid adhering to only one philosophy and instead choose to combine several philosophies, thus creating a special and unique atmosphere for each child’s individual growth.

Knowing that young children learn best through sensory experiences and actions, we encourage children to manipulate, explore, and create. Children are then able to develop a personal meaning through their own application of what they have learned. Harmony offers experiences such as imaginative play, creative dramatics, art and music, science, math, cooking, Spanish, yoga, motor skill development and opportunities to learn and practice social skills. Our program includes a balance of active and quiet activities as well as structured and unstructured projects. Teachers work as facilitators, encouraging the children to become more independent and imaginative. We strongly believe in following the needs of the child. By doing so, we are able to provide our students with meaningful lifelong learning experiences.

Our Curriculum

If there are two words to describe Harmony’s curriculum, it’s balance and community.

Harmony Pre-School

We balance structured activities with unstructured ones. And, of course we teach foundational skills like math, language, science, yoga and Spanish. But our teachers also work as facilitators, encouraging children to make their own choices, become independent learners and imaginative thinkers.

We want children to make their own choices about many of their activities. Because, when children are making their own choices, they’re developing confidence as learners and believing in one’s self -children are becoming lifelong successful learners.

Then, there’s our community. When children see themselves as both an individual and an important contributor to the greater community, good things happen. Children take responsibility, they get involved, have opinions and become engaged both in their learning but also in their community.
