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 are always providing 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) 374-3484

Moody School Developmental Playgroup
Haverhill Public Schools recognizes that many preschool children will benefit from participating in challenging and enjoyable activities that explore the world around them. The program’s curriculum will provide opportunities for fine and gross-motor development, social and emotional development, language and communication development, and pre-reading skills. The playgroup will run from 9:30 – 10:30 a.m.
Prior to the onset of playgroup sessions, parents will need to sign the Playgroup Permission form. This form specifies the purpose and description of the playgroup, guidelines to follow (i.e. cancellations, times, dates, and venue and school contact person), relevant medical information about the child and contact information in the event of an emergency. These services, offered by the Haverhill Public Schools, are subject to availability and other resources.
Please note, a child who attends Moody Preschool’s playgroup is not enrolled in Haverhill Public Schools. For more information, please call Moody School office at (978) 374-3459.

Dear Moody School Families,
My name is Kristi-Lynn Craig and I am honored to introduce myself as the ECC Director at the Moody School. Mrs. Gray and I met over the last few weeks and this past Monday was my first official day at Moody. Over the last 15 years, I have been working as a teacher and a special education administrator in both Ohio and Massachusetts. I am thrilled to be joining the incredible staff at the Moody School to support your children.
Along with the stellar staff and parents at Moody, I will be working to continue the legacy of supporting student growth. I have enjoyed observing the classrooms this week, seeing the work the teachers are doing and meeting your children. Students are actively engaged in learning throughout the day. It has been a sincere joy to witness!
I am looking forward to meeting you!
With warm regards,
OT / PT Home Exercise Programs
Moody School is a unique program in many ways. Our classrooms are staffed with Special Education Teachers who are able to meet the individual needs of the students through curriculum as well as through therapeutic techniques that are initialized and modeled by the therapists. We are staffed with full time Physical and Occupational Therapists who provide direct and consultative services to many students. In an attempt to partner with the teaching staff and the parents of all Moody School students, the therapists will send home as well as post a bi-weekly activity. We hope that you find these activities enjoyable and beneficial to your child’s overall development.
