Pre-K is held Tuesdays and Thursdays 12:30 - 2:30 PM.
Pre-K is for 4 and 5-year-olds offering an alternative to traditional TK. Although Pre-K is designed to complement and build upon our preschool program, enrollment is not limited to current OCP students. Pre-K is open to all 4 and 5-year-olds and can serve as a stand-alone program for families as well!
A maximum of 13 students may enroll.
OCP's Teacher and two working parents are present each day (child:adult ratio 4.33 to 1)
LEARNING AND GROWING!
To build on the socialization and enrichment of the OCP preschool experience, OCP Pre-K incorporates an age-appropriate curriculum designed to prepare children for kindergarten.
Students bring lunch from home and sit together for a lunch period before the pre-k afternoon starts.
Project-based, wonder-inspired learning is interspersed with free-play breaks. Creative thinking is encouraged and fostered.
Projects and activities include:
Insect exploration including butterfly lifecycles, bees, ants, worms, and more
The water cycle
Feelings charts, emotional and body awareness
The Moon and Solar System
Trees and nature exploration
Taste tests and food art
Science experiments including volcanos, floating eggs, melting ice, and more
Fine-motor activities like letter tracing and sewing
Phonemic awareness and basic math concepts incorporated into lessons
OCP requires that all enrolled students adhere to the mandated California State Immunization schedule.
