The Children’s Garden
We are a private, state licensed, preschool providing a quality early childhood education for children ages three to five years. The Children’s Garden is a community that provides a sense of continuity and security, a consistency of place and expectation outside the home. Teachers, parents and children are recognized as a team, learning and growing together throughout the school year.
Shannon Harrison has been in the field of early childhood since 1996. She taught the integrated preschool program in West Newbury, Massachusetts until June 2014 when she purchased The Children’s Garden. She has a BA in Elementary Education from Rollins College, and her M. Ed from Cambridge College, along with 18 years of professional development in the area of early childhood education. Shannon lives in Portsmouth with her husband and 2 children and is very excited to carry on the wonderful tradition of The Children’s Garden.
Our teachers are professional educators who work to create a caring and stimulating environment that supports every child’s journey to understanding. At The Children’s Garden, teachers are researchers, and the school becomes a laboratory, as children are encouraged to question, explore, imagine and construct. Through this learning process, children become persistent and flexible problem solvers. Children are viewed as active learners whose opinions and ideas are valued and fostered.
We invite you to call us (603) 431-6565 to schedule a visit for you and your child.
