Preschool / Pre-Kindergarten Program
OCA’s Preschool and Pre-K 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 3, 4, and turning 5 years old.
We provide a faith-based education to reinforce what is being taught at home. Our program allows children to participate in free-play and have interactions where they make discoveries, investigate, problem solve, and develop social skills. This, along with organized teacher-directed activities in which children learn to focus their attention and function in a group setting, promotes success and positive self-confidence.
Our qualified staff and smaller class sizes enable each child to develop according to his or her own pace, interest, and learning approach.
