Middle Earth development center partners with NPS Bright Beginnings program

Middle Earth Child Development Center has partnered with Norman Public Schools’ Bright Beginnings Academy. To make room for up to 40 new students, board members and staff recently had a cleaning day.

“Middle Earth is proud to become a part of the Bright Beginnings Academy and we look forward to working with Norman Public Schools,” said Claudia Griffith, Middle Earth Board chair. “We had years and years worth of old files to clean out so we have room for those new smiling faces.”

Republic Bank & Trust also partnered with Middle Earth to help. By attending Republic’s Shred Fest event, the center properly dispose of old files.

“We are happy to help Middle Earth get ready for their new adventure. As a proud supporter of Norman Public Schools, we are also excited to see a partnership take place between our school district and Middle Earth to advance this fantastic program,” said Chuck Thompson, bank president.

The Norman Public Schools Pre-K program and an Early Childhood teacher will be placed at Middle Earth. The instructional part of the student’s day is the same 2.5-hour program delivered at regular school sites with explicit curriculum instruction and support. The curriculum is the same as the Oklahoma State Department of Education’s pre-kindergarten curriculum.

A classroom specifically for the Bright Beginnings Academy is being readied at Middle Earth.
