preschool students playing musical instruments


  • Welcome Newburyport Families,

    The Newburyport Public Schools’ early childhood program is an inclusive, developmentally appropriate program designed to meet the needs of children ages three to five years old. Our educational philosophy is founded on the belief that all children have individual differences which are best met through high-quality teaching and differentiated instruction. Participants in the program are children who represent a wide variety of backgrounds, skill levels and abilities. Our integrated staff provides a full service model offering inclusive practices and therapies that insure best practices for all.

    Our preschool program provides a unique opportunity for students to transition to the Kindergarten Program within the Newburyport Public School. A child who participates in the Newburyport Public School Preschool program will have the advantage of being exposed to similar instructional programs and experiences used in kindergarten.  

    Our kindergarten provides a comprehensive introduction to the academic and social aspects of school that lay the foundation for a child’s educational career. We offer a full-day kindergarten program which is open to all.

    We look forward to meeting you and having your child here with us at the Bresnahan!

    Jamie Sokolowski, Principal
