Meet the Principal
Welcome to the Harvey Education Center
I am proud to serve as the Early Childhood Principal at Harvey Education Center and facilitate a great first-school experience for your family. I have worked in Early Childhood Education for over 16 years, most recently serving as a Kindergarten and early elementary teacher. Providing exemplary early schooling, and partnering with families is my mission for all students entering Mason Public Schools. I am a parent of three young boys and understand that a partnership between home and school is essential. Educating children is a privilege and responsibility that I truly believe is the most important job in the world.
Working together with a skilled and passionate staff, we are looking forward to providing your student with quality and hands-on early learning experiences, enriching, engaging activities, and physical activity with recess and structured playtime. We believe in supporting the academic, social, and emotional growth of the whole child through the use of multiple curricular and play-based interactions. Early Childhood Education is the foundation for later school success and we are committed to laying a solid foundation!
Our goal is to connect with students and families through quality conversations, an open-door policy, and frequent communication. Feel free to visit and volunteer (forms will be available at Open House), communicate with school staff, call or email me as you see fit.
The Main Office entrance is located on the north end of the building. Classrooms with exterior doors will be locked, and all visitors must report to the office. Thank you for keeping our staff and students secure as we build and grow!
Plan to review the Parent Handbook in advance and help familiarize your child with the program by encouraging positive behaviors and following school expectations. Students are expected to be safe, be respectful and be responsible during their time at Harvey Education Center and follow the Mason Public School District’s Code of Conduct.
We are looking forward to working with you and your child! Thank you in advance for a positive and enriching school experience at Harvey Education Center…Where Bulldogs Begin!
Mrs. Angie Vandecar, M.A.Ed.
