Our buildings and yards were designed for the specific needs of the young child. We have over 10,000 square feet of indoor play space. Each classroom has an adjoining play yard that is equipped with play equipment appropriate to the students' motor development. Large shade trees and restful areas are available for quiet play.Hadley School offers computer classes in our special Computer Lab. We are also delighted to have two swimming pools on our premises. Our students look forward to water play during the summer months.We are proud to have served the community since 1943 at this same location.OUR PHILOSOPHYWe believe a child's first school experience should be in a loving and stimulating environment where children are encouraged to develop their natural desire to learn. Our goal is to provide a wealth of experiences in a happy and healthy environment to help your child develop socially, emotionally, physically, and above all, intellectually.OUR PROGRAMOur program is academically based so that our students have the optimum opportunity for learning. Our year-round program includes reading readiness, pre-math, music, safety, story-time; self help skills, clay, dough, easel painting, finger painting, cutting and pasting, puzzles, science, and motor development. The children's day is divided into indoor and outdoor activities. During the summer, recreational swimming is provided for all students in our pools. Swimming instruction is also available to our students for an additional nominal fee. Although the school is open between 6:30 a.m. and 6:00 p.m., our academic program begins at 9:00 a.m. and concludes at 3:30 p.m. We prefer your pre-school child attend school at least between the program hours. Elementary grade students must attend between 9:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.
