ABOUT EXETER DAY SCHOOL
Welcome to Exeter Day School, a Licensed Plus preschool.
Since 1939, we have had the privilege of knowing and nurturing children at our beautiful, expansive location near downtown Exeter, NH. We hope that the information on these pages guides you through all the offerings available to your young child. Our two-fold goal is to provide outstanding early childhood education as well as support busy family schedules with convenient hours that include early morning and evening care.
Our bright and colorful classrooms are designed to welcome our young students, many of whom are having their first experience going to school. Our state licensed teachers aim to create an appropriate balance of free play and structured learning for our curious children.
We hope that you find it the inspiring place that we know it to be.
We look forward to welcoming you to our school soon.
The philosophy of the Exeter Day School reflects the belief that the emotional, physical, cognitive, and social areas of development are integrated in the effort to help the child become a whole person. A healthy blending of these three areas will enable the child to face bigger challenges with ease and intelligence. The school encourages the child to develop and keep with him or her enjoyment of learning, expressed through constant curiosity and the knowledge and appreciation of his or her own talents as well as those of others. Through the disciplines of self-control, good listening habits, the ability to follow directions, patience and the satisfaction of accomplishment, the child should be able to approach life with confidence and a feeling of self worth. Recognizing the fact that each child develops at a different pace, the school believes in adapting to the needs of the individual child.
