About Our Preschool & Kindergarten
Oak Grove Preschool and Kindergarten is a ministry of Oak Grove United Methodist Church. We believe that each child is a precious gift from God, who will be loved, nurtured, taught and respected by the staff. We believe that this philosophy will provide a strong foundation for our students. We build relationships with the entire family, as we journey together and experience God’s bountiful love.
Our school year runs from the Wednesday following Labor Day until the Friday of Memorial Day weekend. We serve children from age 2 through kindergarten. Be sure to read our FAQ page for common concerns.
At Oak Grove Preschool and Kindergarten, all classes have a teacher and a full-time teaching assistant, which fulfills our goal of small teacher/student ratios. The number of children in each classroom ranges from 8 children in the 2-year-olds to 16 in the 4-year-olds and Kindergarten programs.
Creative learning methods are used to enhance the curriculum both individually and in groups.

You will not be disappointed. The communication, at Oak Grove Preschool and Kindergarten, is wonderful. Mrs. Horner and Mrs. Jones, the Kindergarten teachers, will blow you away with how phenomenal your child will be, when they enter the 1st grade. To this day, my kids speak about their Oak Grove teachers, on a daily basis. They loved learning, and had so much fun doing so. My kids loved growing inside of the Oak Grove family.
