Pre-Kindergarten Admissions


The Peabody School Pre-Kindergarten program educates three, four, and five-year-old children in a nurturing environment that encourages experiential learning.  Peabody teachers provide developmentally appropriate curricular experiences in language arts, mathematics, science, visual and performing art, music, physical education, and world language. Teachers adjust instruction to meet students’ individual learning needs. Please click here for a copy of our Pre-Kindergarten Brochure.

The Pre-K program operates on the same calendar as Peabody School’s K-8 program. Participation in the Peabody Pre-K program does not guarantee admission to Kindergarten at Peabody School, and the standard application process is applicable to Peabody Pre-K students seeking admission to Peabody Kindergarten. However, during the Kindergarten admissions process, special consideration is given to qualified applicants who are currently enrolled in Peabody Pre-Kindergarten.
