Welcome to Nova Early Learning Center!
Nova Early Learning Center is home to 18 Pre-Kindergarten classes, each with a certified teacher and an assistant. Our teachers are creative, caring, and highly qualified to teach early childhood education. We also have certified teachers who specialize in physical education, music, and art. We have a full time Speech Language Pathologist and offer physical and occupational therapy on site for qualifying students. Each class is equipped with a Promethean Board and computers that children have an opportunity to interact with on a regular basis.
Our vision is to prepare our students for Kindergarten by cultivating their unique talents, skills, and abilities so that when students leave, they will show academic and social growth. Please, come visit us and see all the wonderful things we are doing here at Nova! We are building a brighter future, one child at a time.
Preparation for the 2019-2020 school year has begun as online applications for open enrollment and magnet programs in the Jackson-Madison County School System are now available.
The three Jackson-Madison County Schools educators who won inaugural L.E.A.D.S. Educator Grants presented by Leaders Credit Union are already putting their winnings to work. The program awarded $1,000 grants to each educator and one $250 grant to a runner up.
Five new board members have now begun their 4-year term of service on the Jackson-Madison County School Board. Doris Black, James (Pete) Johnson, Morris Merriweather, Shannon Stewart, and A.J. Massey were sworn in at a ceremony on Thursday, September 13th.
