Oakview preschool offers four bright classrooms, separated by age. Children move from one room to the next in September and continue in the class until the end of the school year in June. Each class is designed to engage children at their developmental level and aid them in reaching appropriate and attainable milestones. We heavily focus on social interactions, problem solving and connecting our interactions through play to real life events.
The Sunshine Room (entry age 2 to 3.3 years)
This class is meant as an introduction to the school setting. Children often play side-by-side and friendships emerge. Teachers work with children on sensory play, communication, potty training and getting comfortable being in a larger setting outside of home or daycare.
The River Room (entry age 3.3 to 4 years)
Children engage with one another and create bonds. They begin to develop problem solving skills, discover what their bodies are capable of and learn that their words have meaning. Independence is thriving in this class!
The Dandelion Room (entry age 4 to 4.6 years)
The Pre-K class is full of social interaction and learning. Children explore letters, numbers, sounds, and big concepts. Curiosity blossoms and children really develop a love for understanding the world around them!
The Rainbow Room (entry age 4.6 to 5 years)
This is the TK class at Oakview! Children take on more individual and community responsibilities such as classroom jobs, personal needs, preparing snacks and more. Additionally, there is more formal exposure to letter writing, phonics, numbers and themes.
We offer daycare before school, from 7:30am to 9am (temporarily 8am-9am), and after school from 12pm to 5:30pm (temporarily 12pm-5pm). Daycare is a time you will find children of all ages playing side by side outdoors, engaging at tables inside, experiencing art and much much more. Mixed age group play time is extremely beneficial as it helps children to develop empathy and play to the level of their peers. This is works well for older children as they learn appropriate interactions for younger children. This time is equally important for the younger children as they get to see the older kids model behavior and skill.
During the morning daycare session, children spend time quietly playing with friends indoors before heading out to the playground to run around before class begins. During the afternoons we offer a naptime to those that choose to have their children nap, we have snacks, read stories, sing and play. Occasionally we also get to attend socials with the seniors at Skyview Day Club next door!
Some days of the week there are extra-curricular activities available for sign up, at an additional fee. During this time the children enrolled will be taken to their class on campus and will resume daycare activities or naptime after the activity is over. Activities are typically scheduled right after lunch. Please check our “Parents” tab for the links to view what is currently being offered.
