The Newmarket School District holds an ongoing Preschool Child Find Screening Program for children through five years of age. The program is available to any Newmarket child, but is primarily meant to identify children who are exhibiting delays in development which may later interfere with school success.
Any parent with questions or concerns about their child's development is encouraged to take advantage of this free, 30-45 minute screening. Daycare providers, preschool teachers and pediatricians are also encouraged to refer parents to call for a preschool screening if they have concerns.
For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call Julie Cooper at 292-7951
