The founders of The Oak Tree Early Learning Academy believe that EVERY child is precious and deserves the best opportunity to achieve their highest potential. Their vision is to give children the necessary foundation to attain their potential and develop and succeed in life, beginning at early childhood.
At The Oak Tree, we strive to "carefully" prepare all of our children to have the best opportunity to thrive in kindergarten and to have a successful lifelong educational experience. A key element of our strategy is to create a safe, healthy, and fun environment for learning. Additionally, we utilize high-performance curriculum and teaching techniques to encourage and enhance learning.
For instance, our system of teaching and learning is based upon proven Developmentally Appropriate Practices which focus on the physical, social, emotional, cultural, and spiritual development of the whole child. That is, our instructional program and teaching practices are designed around the child's age and developmental stage and individual learning style.
Literacy development is critical in a child's formative years and is, therefore, also key to our overall strategy. Teaching children to read is one of our top priorities. It is at the core of our entire teaching program.
Finally, and most importantly, we take care in choosing our teachers and staff because we believe children need positive, nurturing relationships with caring and properly trained adults who are committed to each child achieving his/her greatest potential.
We invest in our staff by providing on-going training, competitive salaries, a benefit package, opportunities for professional growth and fostering a healthy workplace environment.
