Richmond's Children Need Kindergarten Skills

According to the United Way of Whitewater Valley 's Community Impact report, "Wayne County kindergarten readiness scores remain below the national average, with only 56% of children entering kindergarten in the 2012/2013 school year prepared to begin their education. The United Way is addressing this achievement gap by supporting efforts ensuring children have the positive language, literacy, social, and emotional skills identified as the fundamental building blocks of kindergarten readiness."

Oak Park Early Learning Academy is getting ready to open Fall of 2015. Our registered childcare ministry seeks to grow its program to provide slots for over 100 children, with each child immersed in a high-quality curriculum individually preparing them to enter kindergarten -- and succeed! Our childcare program uses an individualized developmental approach to caring and teaching young children. We offer opportunities every day for your child to explore through physical movement, to make discoveries, and to use his/her senses to observe the world around them.

Through exciting, creative hands-on activities, children learn and develop at their own pace, while our teachers utilize research-based curriculum that provides intentional support for that learning and development. Our registered childcare ministry recognizes each child as an individual, expanding where they are and promoting positive learning outcomes that further them along.

Watch for updates as Oak Park Early Learning Academy gets set to grow exceptional learners for social and academic success today -- and tomorrow!
