Located in a residential neighborhood on 13 School Street in Exeter, NH, the Exeter Developmental Preschool is an Early Childhood Program that serves the community for children ages 3-5 years. We proudly provide a preschool education for students that have both typical and specialized learning needs.

Exeter Developmental Preschool is staffed by our well qualified staff including teachers certified in Early Childhood and Special Education and paraprofessionals. In addition, the preschool is supported by related service professionals including a licensed and certified speech language pathologist, occupational therapist and physical therapist.

The preschool utilizes the Creative Curriculum, an exceptional standard of teaching that is designed to develop preschoolers cognitive, physical, language and emotional skills.
