Triplett Preschool

Newport, Rhode Island

In 2014, the East Bay Community Action Program, in collaboration with Newport Public Schools, conducted a feasibility study to evaluate the potential for repurposing the closed George H. Triplett School located on 435 Broadway in Newport, RI, into a preschool center offering pre-k and Head Start programming. This was spurred by the lack of available and appropriate space for early childhood programming which was inhibiting program growth.
