Hearts in Harmony (formerly Heart's Delight) was established in 1992 and is a media-free home-based preschool for children ages 2-4 with a nature and play-based program that provides a rich array of opportunities for multi-sensory discovery, exploration, and experimentation. Within walking distance of Duke University and Brightleaf Square, we are located in quiet Morehead Hills neighborhood, just a few blocks away from Durham public school magnet, Morehead Montessori.

Hearts in Harmony is graced with a lovely spacious outdoor environment where a bamboo thicket and towering pecan trees provide a forest-like canopy for many species of wild birds that regularly visit our bird feeder. We have an indoor/outdoor child-friendly cat named Loci. We also have an outdoor animal corral (with a chicken coop and rabbit hutch) which provides a home for 5 chickens and 2 bunnies. A newly-constructed covered deck provides a sheltered area for all kinds of hands-on activities including woodworking, arts, crafts, and gardening, as well as for enjoying our snacks and lunch. Several original outdoor play structures provide ample opportunities for gross motor and dramatic play, as well as sand, water, and gardening activities.

children and rabbitBeing a state-licensed program, class size is limited to 5 children. Because our mission is to serve parents for whom spending time with their young children is a priority and who have arranged their work schedules so as not to need full-time care, several varieties of care options ranging from a minimum of 8 ½ hours to a maximum of 35 hours per week are available. We operate Monday through Friday from 8:45 a.m.- 1:00 pm. Extended-day options are available 1:00-5:15 any day except Wednesday and are also available for after-school care for school-aged siblings of enrollees. This option varies according to demand.
