THE EARLY BIRD GETS THE WORM
During the pre-kindergarten years, children’s experiences in communication and literacy begin to form the basis and love of learning and school.
Novi Community Preschools program provides a warm and inviting atmosphere to learn. Children are encouraged to express themselves and to connect with their teachers and other children. We value the uniqueness of each child. Ultimately the goal of the program is to provide children with the building blocks that foster confidence in their abilities and an enthusiasm for learning.
THE HEART (SOCIAL & EMOTIONAL)
The NEF awards grants annually throughout the district to fund areas that bring a new perspective or challenge to the student population.
These are grant opportunities for programs to Novi teachers, parent-teacher organizations and administrators who seek funding for additional resources that support creative ideas and challenging opportunities for our Novi students. NEF grants promote educational leadership and academic excellence. The NEF grant process encourages projects which can be developed, shared, and replicated among all the schools in the district.
