Welcome to Early Learning Center at NPS


The mission of the Norwich Public Schools Preschool Program is: to make each child’s school experience one that will foster positive self-esteem and a positive attitude toward learning, to provide each child with a developmentally appropriate environment that will meet the individual needs and learning styles of each child, to encourage each child to think, reason, question and experiment, to respect cultural, linguistic, and family diversity and individual differences of children and staff, and to foster communication and cooperation between parents and teachers in order to provide a meaningful environment in which children learn best.
