OLG’s preschool program is a multi-aged program open to children 3 and 4 years old. The program is designed to help our youngest students explore the world around them while they develop socially, cognitively, linguistically, spiritually, physically and creatively. Classroom activities include arts and crafts, music, movement, alphabet and number activities, science and sensory activities, dramatic play, block play, writing activities, religion and manipulative toys such as puzzles and peg boards. Students will also be assessed in all areas of learning though the year.

Our Preschool teaching team will work on Kindergarten readiness skills with the older students in the class in an environment where learning is engaging and fun. The primary goal for each child’s education in preschool is to equip them with a solid sense of self that comes from developing confidence, inner motivation, problem solving, self-direction, and an excitement for the learning process. Since children learn by doing, we use hands-on teaching strategies and manipulatives at learning centers. Small group instruction and interactions in centers will help the students to develop socially, academically, and physically. Strong fine and gross motor skills are developed in engaging environments. Students are also assessed throughout the year and academics are tailored to meet their current learning needs.
