The Academy of Early Learning still has a few openings available for remote learning! Help your child learn and grow from home with the expertise of our experienced preschool teachers. Discounted tuition and all supplies provided by the school! Call 413-772-1390 or email if you are interested in enrolling your preschooler. 

Due to Covid-19, the Academy of Early Learning will be starting the school year with remote learning. We have purchased additional curriculum to support remote learning and are excited to implement a new learning platform that will be much more accessible for kids to use. The school committee has voted to start to the school year remotely. Tuition will be reduced by 50% during remote learning months. Unfortunately, due to safety concerns related to Covid-19, we are unable to offer before or after school care. We hope that we can continue to provide quality education for your preschooler. If your plans for enrolling your child at AEL have changed, please notify us as soon as possible by leaving a message at the school or by emailing us at: or

The Academy of Early Learning at North Parish, in active partnership with families and community organizations, provides quality education, support services, and collaborative programming in a safe, nurturing public school environment.
We strive to meet the diverse individual needs of all our children by offering meaningful learning opportunities.  We believe young children learn best when discovering and exploring their world through play.
We are dedicated to being a responsive, community-based preschool while meeting all district, state, and national performance standards for excellence.

Our teachers are available to meet with you to discuss your child. You can always call the school at 413-772-1390 to leave a message for your child’s teacher and she will get back to you as soon as possible. Because attending to your children is our highest priority, please schedule a time to speak with your child’s teacher rather than going down to the classroom during the day or trying to catch the teachers during drop off/pick up. Our teachers want to be able to give you their full attention!
