OCA’s Pre-Kindergarten Program focuses on the development of the whole child (social, emotional, physical, and most important – spiritual) through active learning experiences. We employ a warm, nurturing, and engaging developmental approach to education for children who are 4 and 5 years old.

Omaha Christian Academy provides a faith-based education. The program allows children to participate in free-play, small group activities, whole group activities, and have interactions where they make discoveries, investigate, problem solve, and develop social skills. This, along with a structured curriculum, and organized hands-on teacher-directed activities promotes success and positive self-confidence as students prepare for the vital transition into kindergarten.

Our qualified staff and smaller class sizes enable each child to develop according to his or her own pace, interest, and learning approach.

The structured curriculum allows the following kindergarten readiness opportunities for your child:

  • Fine motor practice
  • Compose and decompose numbers up to 10 with manipulatives
  • Copying, lengthening, and constructing patterns
  • Uppercase and lowercase letter identification
  • Letter-sound correlations

Students in this class must be age 4 by July 31, 2024 and be fully potty-trained. OCA will offer two sections of Pre-Kindergarten.

  • Tuesday/Thursday – 8:30am – 3:00pm
  • Wednesday/Friday – 8:30am – 3:00pm
    • In the event there is no school on Friday, there will be school on Monday for the Wed./Fri. section. This will be included in the school year calendar when it is issued (Spring of 2024) so families can plan ahead

Both sections will be taught by the same teacher which has formal training in early childhood education. Snacks are included in the tuition. Hot lunch is available for an additional fee. Students may be dropped off as early as 8 am and after school care is available until 5:30 pm Monday – Friday at a price of $10 per student, per day.
