Moody Pre-School

The integrated preschool program is open to all children who reside in Haverhill.   Classrooms include children with special needs as well as students who are typically developing.

Teams of teachers, assistants and therapists provide motivating, developmentally appropriate learning experiences for all students.  The curriculum is challenging and based on the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks.   We believe that an inclusive education provides all children with the opportunity to learn with and from each other.

Applicants for our preschool classrooms must be at least 3 years old by August 31.  Students attend school for 2 ½ hours a day Monday through Thursday.  The morning session runs from 9:00 – 11:30 a.m. and the afternoon session runs from 12:45 – 3:15 p.m.  For more information, please contact the office at (978) 374-3459.
