Hampstead Academy History of Hampstead Academy by Lyn Kutzelman – Founder
“It was 1977. It was my seventh year teaching Readiness/Grade One at the Atkinson Academy in Atkinson, NH. At that time, public kindergarten did not exist in New Hampshire and there was limited private kindergarten choice for parents. Encouraged by my colleagues, parents, and family, I decided to leave my secure teaching job and start my own kindergarten in Atkinson. At that time, my vision was simply to offer high-quality kindergarten for our community children. Looking back 34 years, I never imagined that vision would have become what it is today … a highly respected independent school for students in preschool through grade eight. Hampstead Academy evolved because of my dedicated staff, supportive parent community, and wonderful students.”
Area News Groups ’ Lyn, 2011
Hampstead Academy was founded 34 years ago with a passion for educating the whole child. While aspects of the school have changed over the years—the growth of enrollment, the school’s physical space, the integration of technology into the curriculum, the development of competitive sport programs at the Upper School level—the school’s driving philosophy remains the same. That passion for whole- child education that called Lyn to open the doors of the Atkinson Learning Center decades ago remains evidenced today by the dedication of Hampstead Academy’s staff and programming to offer the highest caliber of academic excellence while attending not only to the cognitive developmental needs of our students, but to their social, emotional, physical, and creative developmental needs as well.

The Puppy Palace: Havanese to Huskies
Recently celebrating her third year in business,
owner/operator Sharon Dussault continues to seek ways to improve her business, educate her customers, and above all, provide the best possible care for her puppies. When you visit her store, you will have a far different experience than most other supply or pet stores offer. The small, cozy boutique environment offers a little bit of everything, from necessity dog items such as food, bowls, and training needs to the absolute “OMG, I’ve gotta have that” treasures like jewelry, doggie couture, and color crates with coordinating cover/bed sets. Along with the retail amenities is the best part
of all—the Puppy Nursery. When she first opened in 2008, Sharon specialized in small breeds. Last year, due to overwhelming customer requests, medium and large breeds were added to the mix. Now, there really is something for everyone. When you arrive, you will be greeted by her
friendly, knowledgeable staff who are always happy to assist. The love, attention, and great care are apparent not only by the cleanliness of the entire store, but in each happy little puppy’s face. Between visits, stay updated on puppies and products via the Website: www. cutestpuppiesintown and Facebook, and watch for the colorful “puppymobile” around town.
