Greetings Families!

The Winter Festival Recital was a huge success! Thank you to all of the  families that were able to participate! It was a fun time for all!

Just a reminder that we are closed from Monday, December 24- January 1, 2019. We re-open on Wednesday, January 2, 2019.

On Friday, January 17 the children and teachers will participate in a Peace Celebration. We will provide more information closer to the date!

Please plan to attend a Parent-Teacher Conference on Friday, January 18, we will be closed for children this day.

Mark your calendars as a reminder that we are closed on Monday, January 21. This is in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. day. The teachers will participate in an in-service day.

Please make sure to sign you child(ren) in and out each day. We must have an accurate count of the number of children in the building at any time.  We need this information especially in the event of an emergency, we need to keep everyone safte!

Please make sure that you are signing your child up for hot lunch if needed. Over the past several weeks we have had children without a lunch and have not been signed up for a hot lunch. We want to make sure that we have enough food available and prepared for all of our children.

Please review our illness policy to help us prohibit, contain any illness in the center. If your child exhibits any of the following symptoms, please keep them home and call to inform the school of the absence. To protect all children at Novi Woods Montessori Center Inc., your child will not be accepted at the center if he/she has any of the following symptoms:

  • thick, colored discharge from nose or eyes
  • persistent and productive cough
  • red or runny eyes with persistent sneezing
  • Fever- children must be fever-free w/out the use of fever reducer for 24 hours
  • diarrhea and persistent abdominal pain.
  • nausea and vomiting
  • Pink eye
  • Lice or Nits
  • Listless, refuses to eat-often a sign of the flu

Please see the parent handbook for a complete list of symptoms

The children enjoyed story time with Ms. Emily from the Novi Library. She visits at least twice per season. Novi Woods Montessori has been asked to be a test site for the Library’s new lending library, Raising a Reader in Novi. Beginning in January there will be books on display at the front counter. Children may borrow the book(s) for a few days or a week, all books must be returned to the library on Monday, February 25, 2019. The goal is to get good early childhood books into the hands of our children!


Have a safe and happy holiday! Everyone at Novi Woods Montessori wishes you and yours a very happy and prosperous New Year!
