Academics TEMP

Learning should be fun. It's that simple.

When your child is instilled with a desire to learn – rather than being pressured to learn – the information he or she can acquire is truly endless. Which is why here at Red Oaks, our teachers makes the extra effort to create lessons that are engaging and applicable to the life of the student. And, whenever possible, uniquely memorable. Your child will be encouraged to delve deeper into topics that he or she finds exciting. Pursue creative thinking and expression. And develop an enthusiasm for learning that can unlock countless opportunities.

(Pre-K & Kindergarten – ages 3 to 6)

These are the few years that can impact a lifetime. 90% of a child's brain develops in the first five years of life. Maximizing your child's learning potential during this time period is critical. As a preschooler at Red Oaks, he or she will acquire the skills necessary to enter Kindergarten confident, well-prepared and with a passion to learn. Once in Kindergarten, your child will be encouraged to pursue his or her curiosity and tackle new challenges, while developing a positive attitude toward school necessary to becoming a lifelong learner.

A focus on The Arts

Education in the arts is an integral part of our development as human beings. Exposure to creativity in many forms certainly stimulates freethinking, expression and problem-solving. But studies have also associated exposure to the arts with gains in math, reading, cognitive ability and verbal skills. The arts play a significant role in our daily learning environment here at Red Oaks where we use these outlets for creativity to promote self-esteem and improved emotional expression, as well as social connection and appreciation of diversity.
