Newmarket Preschool Program
Welcome to Preschool!
Newmarket's youngest students learn about the world and themselves in our loving, warm, and inclusive program.
Because we seek to meet the unique needs of each child, we emphasize the development of strong relationships among parents, teachers, and therapists (for those students who need them).
As parents and guardians, you are your child's first and most important teacher. We invite your participation not only in your child's education, but also in the life and culture of our program.
- Create the conditions necessary for each child to develop socially, emotionally, and cognitively to the greatest extent possible
- Strengthen the capacity of each child to participate actively in an educational, social environment
- Encourage families in building their skill and confidence to support their children's development
Student Application & Registration
As Newmarket Preschool is not a universal public program, there are limited spots for peer-model children each year.
We encourage families interested in the 2023-24 school year to complete this Preschool application as early as possible in order to be placed on the wait list.
If your child is enrolled, you will then need to complete the district's registration process.
Preschool follows the same calendar as the Newmarket Elementary School, except that we being about a week later and end the school year about a week earlier than NES. We will notify you if there are any changes in the calendar.
Do you have any concerns about your child's development?
We are here to help.
Child Find is a process designed to identify, locate, and evaluate individuals from age 2.5 to 21 years of age who may need special education and related services.
If you are concerned that your child may have a disability or is not meeting developmental milestones as expected, please contact Kristina Cochran, Assistant Principal for Student Services, for more information about the Child Find process.
