WRITTEN BY: intern extraordinaire

Welcome back to Week 7 of our 45 Days of Giving! See Days 31 – 35 below!  In the fall of 2018, Nossi College of Art is celebrating our 45th anniversary, and we decided to do 45 acts of creative kindness for local classrooms, non-profits, church groups. Nashville and the surrounding communities have been supportive of Nossi College and the impact we wanted to make on this area, so in return, we wanted to feature 45 acts of thankfulness. If you haven’t already, check out our previous blog for Week 6 to get all the action! Day 31: Ivanetta H. Davis Early Learning Center Ivanetta H. Davis Early Learning Center is a child- and family-centered public preschool. What’s unique about this preschool is the children’s growth and development are supported through the studies of the Creative Curriculum. Each day, students focus on literacy, math, social studies and science while also receiving social and emotional learning through experiences in the garden, the library and art classes. Teaching students through STEAM is very important for Nossi College and we were thrilled to stock their classroom with markers, crayons, crafting supplies and plenty of glue to hold it all together!

Davis Early Learning Center Ivanetta encourages families to visit and play often and to be engaged in their student’s life – both in and out of the classroom.
