 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 3:15 pm.

Our program includes:

  • social and interpersonal skills
  • self-help and independence
  • positive approaches to learning
  • academic skills
  • language and literacy skills
  • faith formation with weekly Chapel led by our Director of Christian Education, Tiffany Goggans
  • appreciation of music and the arts
  • wellness and healthy living, including daily recess (weather permitting) on our park-like, well-shaded playground

We hope that you will find a home away from home for your child here at Oakland Presbyterian Preschool.

RAVES for Oakland Presbyterian Preschool

Deanna – “This is my daughter’s second year there. We absolutely LOVE the school and the entire staff. When we moved here, we were looking for a smaller-type school with a family-type atmosphere, and that’s exactly what Oakland Presbyterian is. They truly go above and beyond and love every single one of the kids. Nothing but positive things to say about the school and I highly recommend them.”

April – “I have 4 kids and 3 of the 4 have gone to OPP! … We LOVE OPP! The staff is super personable and friendly. Our kids are well-loved there and they get to do all sorts of fun crafts and activities while learning. They really do feel like family.”

Kara – “We loved it. Our only regret was that we didn’t find it sooner! We generally knew her previous school wasn’t the right fit. But a few days at Oakland and it was like she had been there the whole time.”

Angie – “Our daughter did PreK 3 and VPK there. I agree that it has a small, family feel and that the kids are well-loved there, which I think is exactly what kids need at that age. The teachers and the director Laurie are amazing!”

Aveni – “2 of my kids go there. My son has been there for 3 years and this is my daughter’s first year. We love it and the teachers and preschool director are amazing!”
