Discover Early Childhood

The Oakhill Day School Early Childhood Division is comprised of four distinct programs: Pretoddler (18-months), Toddler (Age 2), Preschool, and Prekindergarten.  Our students develop as they explore math, science, social studies, and communication arts. Participation in daily circle time, Physical Education, Technology, Spanish, and Music is also a vital part of Early Childhood Education at Oakhill.

Because our Early Childhood parents rely on Oakhill to provide day to day care and enrichment for their child, our Early Childhood division will remain open to parents who need us during mandated closures. In this instance we will continue to follow all recommended health and safety guidelines to keep our students who remain on campus healthy, happy, and safe.






Any way you choose. You pick the pace of your child's education.

We realize that sending your child to school for the first time can be intimidating. They are still young and learning to navigate their world. You want their first school experiences to be in a warm, nurturing, and safe environment... like an extension of the home.

There is something special about being a child's first school experience. There is so much learning that happens at that age, from speech development to potty training, we get to help those students grow into lifelong learners.
