Early Childhood Education

At Oak Hill, we promote the development of the whole child. Our Early Childhood Education program provides a thoughtfully planned and appropriately challenging curriculum, which seeks a balance between active child-initiated learning and teacher-directed instruction. Language, motor, social, emotional, spiritual, and cognitive growth are all major considerations in our classrooms.

As Early Childhood educators, it is our responsibility to create a classroom environment that is respectful of the child and encourages ongoing family involvement that helps children understand, solidify, and build on the world they know. We provide parents with numerous opportunities to participate in their child’s learning. Through our teacher communications, parents are kept informed and are encouraged to engage in the daily activities at Oak Hill. Parents are invited to volunteer for cafeteria or playground duty, chaperone on field trips, and support their child in performing community service, which is a part of the religious education of each child at Oak Hill.

Junior Kindergarten 3 and 4 families have several scheduling options to help transition their child to the five full days required for Kindergarten and beyond.

"We have always known that Oak Hill is an excellent place for academic, spiritual, and personal growth. I knew, beyond a doubt, after our son’s first day of school, that there could be no better place for him. The wonderfully gifted teachers and staff, who are so nurturing and caring, make Oak Hill a very special community.
