EARLY CHILDHOOD, PRE-PRIMARY AND KINDERGARTEN

OAK HILL'S EARLY CHILDHOOD, PRE-PRIMARY AND KINDERGARTEN PROGRAMS ARE DESIGNED FOR YOUNG CHILDREN AT RISK FOR LEARNING DIFFERENCES

Early intervention in a speech-language based 5-day program is a critical and timely component for life-long success for young children (ages 3-6) with diagnosed speech-language delays.

For parents of young children diagnosed with speech-language delays, the preschool years can be a frightening time filled with feelings of hopelessness and uncertainty. The fear that their child will never be able to learn, socialize and make attachments weighs heavy on their hearts and minds. For most of these parents, hopeless and helpless are words that best describe how they feel.

Oak Hill Academy is a beacon of hope and a pathway to success for the children of these special families. The cornerstone of the Early Childhood, Pre-Primary and Kindergarten programs is curriculum developed through the collaborative efforts of Speech Language Pathologists and Early Childhood Specialists, specially designed for the speech-language delayed child. The school's comprehensive program is aimed at helping students, families, and the school work together for a successful early intervention education experience. The heart of Oak Hill Academy’s curriculum lies in its multisensory teaching strategies that take two-dimensional concepts and bring them to life in three-dimensional, discovery learning opportunities.
