Preschool at OLW School

Our teachers encourage playtime because it teaches young children a lot about cooperation. Crafts give children an opportunity for hand-eye coordination exercises and also allows them to show creativity. Our preschool classrooms include different selections of art mediums, books, building materials and dramatic play supplies.

Each preschool classroom has a SMART Board.  Jolly Phonics is used to teach letters and sounds. Exposure to literature is an important aspect of the early childhood learning experience. Several lessons are taught in small groups, recognizing that each child learns in a different manner.

It is important to our teachers that every student feels proud of their work every day.
