The Mayapple School
Creative, place-based education for ages 3-6
The Mayapple School is a non-profit preschool program for children ages 3-6 located in the first classroom on the right at the Newport Recreation Center. Our creative curriculum focuses on meaningful, interdisciplinary learning that helps children build relationships and connect with the world around them.
The 2015/2016 school year was the first for The Mayapple School. When class is in session, you can often spot preschoolers playing on the fields; for those who fondly remember when every room in the building was occupied with students, it is wonderful to see the building being put to use again in a form of its original purpose.
For families with preschoolers, The Mayapple School is now enrolling for the 2016/2017 school year. Find out more at The Mayapple School website.
There are numerous opportunities for volunteering and involvement with the school, including playground renovations and volunteering in the classroom as a one-on-one reading buddy. Find out more here.
