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)



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:

  • Gardening

  • 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

  • Storytelling, puppets

  • Fine-motor activities like letter tracing and sewing

  • Phonemic awareness and basic math concepts incorporated into lessons
