Preschool

Oak Grove School District currently has three Child Care Centers located at Frost, Taylor, and Baldwin Elementary Schools that provide a preschool program. The fee-based model of these services provides revenue for the district.

Our Oak Grove Preschools are preparing children for entry into kindergarten, beginning as early as two years and nine months old. The three-year-old students attend Tuesdays and Thursdays for a program that emphasizes developing social-emotional skills. Students must be potty-trained and turn three years old by December 2nd of the school year in order to attend. The four-year-olds attend on Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays, for an instructional program that is based on the California Learning Foundations in social-emotional development, literacy, language, and math. Students must turn four years old by December 2nd of the school year in order to attend. This class is intended for the year before Transitional Kindergarten or Kindergarten.

In addition, a 5-day 4-year old program is offered at Taylor Preschool. For information and registration, please contact Rosario Lozano rlozano@ogsd.net

At Baldwin Elementary we offer preschool daycare (7 am to 6 pm) for 3 and 4 year olds. Contact Chan Chan Tran: ctran@ogsd.net

We believe in teaching and nurturing the students in all the areas that will make them better prepared for kindergarten including self-regulation, social expression, self-care, and motor skills as well as academics. Recent research has shown that kindergarten teachers want children ready for the social element of school as well as the academics. If students are ready to take care of their personal needs, get along with others, sit in circle, and sometimes work independently, then great academic goals can be achieved.

In preparing our students for the academics of kindergarten, we use state adopted curriculum and research-based, culturally responsive instructional strategies.  Our preschool teachers engage in professional development throughout the year and work collaboratively to make data-driven decisions about their students’ needs.

Our days and weeks follow a routine and schedule that the children come to depend on. All days include calendar, circle time, phonics, center-based play and exploration, outside play and socialization, small group academic time and snack.
