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

Dates to remember
Child Find Screening
It is the responsibility of Haverhill Public Schools to identify any child who is a resident of Haverhill who may have a disability. Child Find is a continuous process of public awareness activities, screenings and/or evaluations designated to locate, identify, and refer as early as possible all young children with disabilities and their families who are in need of preschool special education. The Haverhill Public Schools is committed to locating children 3 – 5 years of age in order to provide early intervention services. If you have any concerns or questions about your child’s development and would like to have him or her screened, we will be holding the screenings at Moody School on February 2, 2018, between 11:00 – 2:00. Please contact Mrs. Collins to book at appointment at (978) 374-3459.

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.

Message from the Principal
September 20, 2017
Greeting Moody preschool families. A warm welcome to you all and I hope that the school year is off to a great start for you and your family. It seems as though everyone has made a smooth transition. Students have been learning the routines and listening to wonderful stories. I have enjoyed getting to know the children and parents. I’m the building Principal for the district’s early childhood schools including Moody Preschool. If you have any questions or concerns that arise at any time, please do not hesitate to give your child’s teacher or myself a call.
You may call the school and leave a message for me with Mrs. Lisa Collins, the Principal Clerk. Mrs. Lynne Murray is the Head Teacher at Moody School and she is working closely with me to support the students and staff. If you are unable to reach me, you may contact Mrs. Murray. Mrs. Heather Azzarito is our building nurse and you may contact her if you have any questions or concerns regarding your child’s health.
Over the next two months, students will explore a fall/autumn theme on apples and pumpkins including lessons on leaves and trees. Our school goal is to create an educational partnership with you and your child that will foster a passion for learning. It is our desire to keep you informed of all that is taking place at school. We will post classroom activities and announcements on the school web page. Whether you are a classroom volunteer or a member of the PTO, you are encouraged to be involved. Through our partnership, the staff and I will ensure that our common goal is to have your son/daughter reach his/her full potential.
