The center is located at:
8504 Harps Mill Road,
Raleigh, NC 27615
The center is in a residential area of North Raleigh across from Litchford Village Shopping Center. We are just off Atlantic Avenue convenient to Falls of Neuse, Durant Road and the 540 Interchange. (see map below)
We have an open door policy so parents and visitors are welcome at all times. You may visit the center any time during operating hours or you may make an appointment. Due to the volume of parents dropping off in the morning and picking up at night the best time for an unscheduled visit is between 9AM – 4PM.
The center director, Elizabeth Lester, has been at Harps Mill Creative School since March 2013. Elizabeth holds a B.S. in Child Development from Meredith College and a Master's Degree in Early Childhood Studies. She has been working in the field of early childhood education since 1996 and is the mother of three wonderful boys. You may speak with her, or one of our other office staff will be glad to give you a tour and/or answer any of your questions.

Harps Mill Creative School is an exceptionally clean facility built specifically for child care.
