PRE-K

Pre-K is held Tuesdays and Thursdays 12:30 - 2:30 PM.

Students typically attend the year before they are eligible for kindergarten/transitional kindergarten.  

Pre-K is designed to complement and build on our preschool program, therefore only current OCP students are eligible for participation in the Pre-K program.  

A maximum of 13 students may enroll.  

OCP's Teacher and one working parent is present each day (child/adult ratio 6.5 to 1)
