STEAM-Based Preschool Opens in Leesburg

The Harrison Street Academy recently opened in downtown Leesburg, offering a curriculum of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics.

“This may sound like a challenge for preschool students, but recent studies have demonstrated that our precious little ones are able to respond, learn and grow when placed in a stimulating environment with passionate, well-equipped teachers,” said Laurie Maltby. “Since we believe that play is an important part of development, academic periods are limited to appropriate attention patterns for each specific age group. Indoor games and activities, outdoor play, music, art, poetry and other fun activities punctuate the school day and re-energize learners.”

The academy will hold an open house March 10 from 10 a.m. to noon. Private tours are available upon request.

The school is located at 115 Harrison Street NE. For more information, go to
