At Oak Village Academy, we operate with the highest standards when it comes to our staff and learning environment. But that’s just part of our program. We have designed our infant, toddler and preschool educational programs in such a way that:

  • Respects individual differences
  • Honors every child’s culture
  • Sees family members as equal partners in a child’s growth and learning

Every day at Oak Village Academy, through exploration and play, children of all ages build relationships and reach individual milestones in the following areas:

  • Emotional and social development
  • Health and physical development
  • Language and communication
  • Cognitive development

Our sensitive, highly trained staff observe each child carefully to learn about their individual development, needs, interests and temperament. We then choose those strategies that will most support the children in their brain development. 

The Oak Village Academy team uses the NCDHHS Foundations for Early Learning & Development program supplemented by the Kaplan Early Learning program toys and learning tools as a basis for curriculum for all ages. We also use the Kaplan Learn Every Dayprogram to supplement our program for infants and toddlers, as well as our 2 and 3 year olds, and the Kaplan Connect4Learning® (C4L) program for our 4  year olds.

The NCDHHS Foundations for Early Learning & Development program offers the following guidelines for families:



At Oak Village Academy, physical education is built into our very philosophy. Our emphasis on outdoor learning environments (OLE) means that children spend 75% of their day outside, but we go way beyond even that with:

  • Full-time P.E. teacher/coach on staff
  • Lesson plans focused on age-appropriate developmental goals
  • Whole language approach connects classroom themes with physical activity, extending learning through P.E.
