Little Raiders Preschool

Our Philosophy

Okie Dokie Raider Bird logo

Little Raiders Preschool is committed to providing a warm, nurturing environment where children can learn and grow. Our goal is to provide a childhood experience filled with adventure, investigation, exploration and friendship. We want to create a program where families and children feel at home and part of a warm, supportive community.
 We will use the Oakwood PRIDE model to become Prepared, Respectful, In Control, Determined and Engaged learners.
We believe children learn best in a nurturing, child-initiated play-based environment that fosters self-confidence, trust, creativity, and acceptance of individual differences.  Our program allows children to learn by doing, getting messy, investigating their questions, and problem solving with their friends. They also learn by playing games, using their imaginations, expressing their emotions, creating, and exploring the world around them.
As teachers, we set up intentional play activities and explorations that meet the needs of individual students. We extend their thinking and play to help them learn and grow. Each classroom will provide high quality education and care for every student. Our classrooms are organized in a way that students can grow in the following areas: social emotional, language and literacy, math, science, creative arts, fine and gross motor skills.  We believe in creating an environment that will make children feel safe, loved, valued and accepted.
