Dear Families, 

Welcome to the Anne Bradstreet Early Childhood Center. We are both looking forward to working with you and your children this year. Our new building is in place and now we wait for the internal finishing touches! 

We both bring to North Andover years of experience working with young children and families.  

Shortly you will receive information about the beginning of the school year as well as your child’s teacher assignment.  

Please continue to follow the progress of the school by subscribing to the Anne Bradstreet Blog and getting the answers to your many questions at our website, including FAQs on both preschool and kindergarten

Kindergarten Information/Registration Night

posted Mar 18, 2018, 7:58 AM by Marylou Connors   [ updated Mar 22, 2018, 11:42 AM by Hillary Stasonis ]

Kindergarten Information/Registration night will be held on Wednesday, March 28th at 6:30 at the Middle School. This is an important evening to find out about programs such as the lunch program, transportation, community programs, etc. In addition, if your children do not go to the ECC at this time, you will need to register your children and sign up for a kindergarten screening on this night as well. Please plan on joining us for this important evening.

We have a name!!

posted Mar 18, 2018, 7:52 AM by Marylou Connors   [ updated Mar 22, 2018, 11:42 AM by Hillary Stasonis ]

Well if you have heard a rumor that we have a name for our school, it is correct! On Thursday night, the school committee unanimously voted to name our school the "Anne Bradstreet Early Childhood Center". Anne Bradstreet was a well known poet who we will all learn more about as this process of building the addition and preparing for the opening continues. An interesting fact to note is that everyone knows the school on Main St. was also named "Bradstreet School", but this was NOT named after Anne but instead was named after her husband. This early childhood center will be named after Anne, only the second school in North Andover to be named after a female!

Naming of New Kindergarten Building

posted Jan 22, 2018, 7:50 AM by Hillary Stasonis

At the December 7 School Committee meeting, the Committee announced its intention to name the new kindergarten building.  In compliance with the School Committee policy and procedure for Naming School Facilities, clerk Helen Pickard will chair a subcommittee to organize name suggestions and present a recommendation to the full School Committee for a vote.  

Community members who wish to propose a name should submit their suggestion in writing to bnc@northandoverpublicschools.com by 3:00 pm on January 16, 2018. Please include a brief explanation as to why we should consider the name.

As per our policy, we will consider names with educational significance or inspiration, location/geographical names, names of distinguished leaders who will lend dignity and stature to the school facility or names that include significant or pertinent events.  We will update the community on progress at the School Committee meeting on February 8.  The subcommittee will present all names suggested, along with a recommendation for vote by the School Committee on March 1.
