The Oaks Preschool

Our Philosophy
Preschool Aims:
  • To provide a happy, safe and stimulating environment in which children can learn.

  • To provide a stepping stone from the family to the formal education system.

  • To provide an environment in which families and teaching staff can work together to meet the individual needs of the child.

  • To accommodate the individual needs and interests of each child by providing appropriate activities.

  • To provide a range of experiences which build upon and reflect the child’s cultural background.

  • To foster a sense of security and inclusion for children, parents and caregivers.

  • To develop on-going communication between staff, families and children.

  • To employ staff who enjoy working with both children and their families.

  • To develop co-operative relationships between staff and Board members.
