Children at Oak Grove UMC Christian School are given daily opportunities to use age-appropriate materials and resources to create, build, imagine, and explore. Our philosophy focuses on developing positive self-esteem and independence. Children are encouraged to try new ideas and learn from their mistakes. They learn to work together cooperatively side by side. We have a Christian Curriculum that is incorporated into every age group.
We believe that children learn best by doing. Our experienced and well-trained teachers provide the opportunity and environment for this learning. Our low child-teacher ratios make interactions between children and caregivers individualized and meaningful. Oak Grove Christian School is a place where children and adults are loved and valued as unique individuals.
You can see it in our smiles!
