The Harbor at Station Place
Welcome to Our Center
Welcome to the Harbor at Station Place, located in the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission Federal government building. From infancy and beyond, our goal is to help children learn and thrive. Our STEM lab gives your child the chance to explore science, technology, engineering, and math and develop future-forward skills. The family recycling stations help instill environmental awareness and responsibility, and our fish tanks offer a colorful look at underwater marine life. Plus, our shaded playgrounds offer plenty of room to explore and socialize, and the spray pad is a fun spot to cool off during the warmer months. Visit us for a tour, meet our incredible team of teachers, and see all we have to offer.
