Student Services

Tutorial Service 

The Jane Norman College has an established tutorial program designed to help students achieve academic success.  Students experiencing academic concerns of any kind should contact Sandra Muir, Student Success Coordinator, who will give them more detailed information about our tutorial program.

Laboratory Settings 

Students have the opportunity to observe and participate in two early learning environments which are housed in the College’s Lorne Street facility.  These two centers ensure that, as well as having classroom instruction and field placements, our students have practical on-site interactions with children in a laboratory setting.

The Dr. Jane Norman Child Study Centre, a non-profit centre, offers a full day child care program for children ages 2-5 years.  The centre is an inclusive environment and, therefore, encourages and supports the integration of children with a variety of special needs.  It also provides training experiences for students of the College as well as other students within the community.

The  Colchester  Community Day Care Center is a non-profit, independent, board-run center which offers full day programming for preschool children as well as after school programming.  Although the day care is an independent facility, the day care and the College enjoy a cooperative educational affiliation.

Students in the special education program have the opportunity to participate in the Colchester East Hants Early Intervention program offered to families of young children with a variety of special needs.  An early interventionist works with parents to help them cultivate skills necessary to help their individualized program of stimulation that recommends specific play strategies and activities that will benefit the child.  Parents are a very important part of this program and are encouraged to participate in the weekly home visit sessions, as well as, follow through with similar programming throughout the week.
