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.

  • School at Home Suggestions

    Hello Moody School Community! This is week 2 at home. Even if we aren’t in school together, we want to continue to support your child in the ways available to us. We are in this together!

    One way to support the health and well-being of your child is to support a regular daily routine.  Each week, we’ll be posting suggested activities (15 minutes or shorter) that you can do with your child to support your routine during these unusual times.

    Stay healthy, stay safe, and stay connected!
