Oakland Presbyterian Preschool is a ministry of Oakland Presbyterian Church. We offer a high quality preschool program based on the idea that young children require a safe, secure, and nurturing environment. Our teachers are fingerprinted and must pass a nationally screened background check. They are all trained and certified according to state standards. We use a Christian faith-based curriculum, and we focus on appropriate preschool goals. Our primary purpose is to teach, guide, and love children, to make a lifelong impression on their lives and the lives of their families, and to teach them about the love of Jesus Christ. Please note that we are not a daycare- we can not enroll children under age 2, and we do not offer drop off before 8:30 am or pick up past 5:30 pm.
Our program includes:
