Physical Activity – Gym time will be a part of our program. Children will have the opportunity to explore a wide variety of physical play including but not limited to; organized sports, games, gymnastics, dance and yoga. This will be an opportunity to strengthen your child’s gross motor skills, expose them to team building and leadership opportunities.
Academics – Through a variety of fun activities, your child will enjoy a literacy and numeracy rich program. Children at play are actively involved in problem solving, exploring new ideas as well as ways of thinking and creating new themes. It is our goal to create the foundation for your child’s future academic success.
This program is for preschool aged children. This program runs year around with program start in September. Intake continues throughout the year pending availability.
Together we will take our first steps towards being independent and will begin to build trusting relationships with our peers and teachers. Our small teacher-child ratio (1:6) ensures individualized attention and learning. This play based learning environment will help prepare your child for kindergarten and future success in school. While at play, staff will encourage and teach independence, sharing, literacy and numeracy, acknowledging feelings, problem solving, respect, rules and an increased self-confidence. Your child will learn to follow routines, listen to others and take turns contributing to group activities. It is our goal to offer a program that encourages natural curiosity while exploring new ideas.

It became clear to us that our child needed something in between a home daycare and kindergarten. Oaks n acorns preschool is providing the perfect bridge! The preschool is structured yet nurturing, with small class sizes and great arts activities. The staff communicates well with parents, and even offers individualized feedback for each child at points through the year. Thanks, oaks n acorns preschool team! – Alysse
Lil Learners was my three-year- old’s first time taking a class without a parent nearby and he loved it from day one. The teachers are warm, supportive and enthusiastic and my son has developed social skills, learned his numbers and is in the early stages of learning to read. I would highly recommend this program. – Vanessa
The Lil’ Learners program has been a wonderful introduction to preschool for our daughter. She quickly connected with the teachers who were all very friendly, caring, and enthusiastic. The program is well organized and offers a wonderful range of well thought out activities. We would definitely recommend this program to anyone who is seeking a quality, part-time preschool program – Dawn
We have been thrilled with the Lil Learners preschool program at Oaks n Acorns. Ethan has thrived in this program and is totally ready for JK in the Fall. He has been sharing stories, singing songs and showing his artwork to us throughout the school year. The teachers have done an excellent job of keeping parents updated and providing opportunities for parents to see what the kids have been working on. The preschool graduation was so cute – love the thought and effort the teachers put into making this a special day for the kids. Truly a first-rate program which I would highly recommend. – Serra
Thank you so much for offering such a great preschool program Wren has absolutely loved the experience and has learned a great deal over the past nine months. I have been very impressed with your preschool program. I will certainly recommend it to others. Wren was always super excited in the mornings of preschool and I know this has been great preparation for her transition to JK. Thanks again so much! – Katherine
