The teachers at Oak Grove Preschool and Kindergarten are chosen on the basis of their education, their experience, and most importantly, their understanding of children and the caring respect they exhibit toward them.
Our belief is that a positive, nurturing relationship must be present between each teacher and student in our program.
2019 - 2020 School Year
All staff members have undergone background checks and are CPR/First Aid certified. As a staff, we are mandatory reporters of Child Abuse/Neglect. Several teachers are trained to assist a child with an emergency inhaler, as well as epipen for allergic reactions.
As a group, we stay on the cutting edge of early childhood development by participating in workshops and training sessions throughout the year.
"It is with great pride that I can say that we found the PERFECT FIT with Oak Grove! Our son cannot wait to tell me each day about what he did at school, he beams with excitement with each story he tells me when I come home from work. The best part is that you and your staff are so caring. I know that you are like that with each and every one of the students at Oak Grove.
It is so comforting to us to see how at ease our son is with his teachers, past and present. As I write this I am reminded of a recent ODU Basketball Game we attended, and he happened to spot Ms. Renee five or six rows behind us. He nearly jumped out of his skin and was bounding up the stairs two at a time to embrace her in a bear hug. The best part was that Ms. Renee was just as excited as our son and raced to meet him. I can honestly say that I have not been witness to many teacher/student interactions like the one at the basketball game.
We are truly blessed to be part of the Oak Grove family and our son is a better person and student for the time he has with ALL of you. From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU for all that you do and continue to do! You and your staff do a tremendous job each and every day."
