Message From the Principal

Welcome to Norwood's Early Childhood program! The Little Mustangs Preschool Academy (LMPA) houses five integrated preschools, and a Practical Application of Skills (PACS) classroom for preschoolers. The Willett Early Childhood Center houses thirteen full-day kindergarten classes. Our enrollment is approximately 400 students ages 3-6. The teachers and instructional assistants at the Willett and LMPA are highly skilled and dedicated to their work. They plan and implement a positive learning experience for all of our students. Our classrooms are nurturing environments where students grow socially, emotionally and academically. I invite parents and families to be involved in your child's education, through conversations with your child's teachers. Additionally, we ask that you assist them in their remote learning by reinforcing early literacy and numeracy skills that are taught at school and by playing educational games that include dice, numbers, letters and strategy skills.

 Please note that starting in the fall of 2022, the hours of the kindergarten student day at the Willett School will officially be from 8:10 am to 1:40 pm. Please click here for information that shares information for the start time for all of our Norwood Schools. 

If you have any questions or need to contact me directly, please do using the contact information below.
