We are looking forward to our 2020 Summer Program - please check back for enrollment in February, 2020!


The Harris Family Children's Center will once again be offering summer camp opportunities to all children ages 5-8 years old beginning June 24th, 2019.  Our camp will offer an array of experiences in music, art, drama, science and sports for children from PEA as well as the surrounding community. We also provide Preschool & Infant/Toddler Summer programs.

Special guests from Wildlife Encounters, NH Audubon, and the SEE Science Program will be invited to share their expertise with the children on site.  Additionally, children will be taking local field trips to area events.  In the past, such trips have included Arts in the Park in Hampton, Brentwood Gymnastics, the Exeter town pool, Seacoast Science Center, Wallis Sands beach, and many more.

Our state-of-the-art facility is designed with several common areas to enhance the children's hands on learning experiences. The Harkness Conservatory, modeled after the Italian art studio, has an abundance of natural light.  It is equipped with a variety of mediums made of natural and recycled materials, clays and paints that provide our young artists with endless creative possibilities.

Our building is air-conditioned and award-winning for its design.  The classroom and the spacious Great Room are set up to provide plenty of room for gross motor activities, shadow play and dramatic expression. Take a tour here.

Our spacious outdoor learning environment abuts Swasey Parkway and the Squamscott River where children spend countless hours observing the local habitat.  Our playground houses an oversized gazebo that overlooks the river, a water feature with an old hand pump for endless sand & water play, giant chimes for sensorial stimulation, a sea serpent for climbing, a basketball court and a large green space for organized sports.
