Tips for Choosing a Class

  • Any combination of days is available for both 3 and 4 year old preschool sessions. The most popular choices for 2 sessions per week are the Tuesday-Thursday or the Monday-Wednesday combination. Consider one of these choices if 2 sessions per week is your preference, since children do make friends in their small group and begin to look for certain children. If you want 3 sessions per week, consider adding Fabulous Friday for enrichment. Monday through Thursday works well for 4 sessions per week.
  • Children in the 3 year old classes should understand how to use the bathroom. Children may come in pull-ups, and occasional accidents are expected. Please send a change of clothes for these occurrences.
  • Parents of 4 year old children may choose to consider one of the following options. Both enhance and enrich your child’s preschool experience and¬†aid in preparing him/her for all day/every day kindergarten.
    • The Fours Plus class gives your child the experience of every day school. This consistent, structured schedule allows new concepts (letters, numbers, shapes,¬†printing) to be introduced and then reinforced the following day.
    • Lunch Bunch – Have your child join us for lunch every Wednesday from 11:30 to 1:00. The children will experience eating a school lunch with their friends followed by an activity or outside play. This is a great way to extend your child’s day and help him/her become more independent as he/she transitions to kindergarten.
  • Not sure your child is ready for Kindergarten? Consider the “Young Fives” class. It delays Kindergarten for a year while giving your child the time to develop physically and emotionally.
  • Children at Oakwood for full time day care have a preschool session as part of their day. Preschool is included in the day care rate. Morning preschool works well for those children who still need a rest time. Afternoon preschool is often preferred for children who do not usually nap.
