Oak Hills Early Childhood Program

About

The Oak Hills Early Childhood  Programs, located at Delshire Elementary and J. F. Dulles Elementary Schools, provide a multi-age classroom for preschoolers focused on supporting Kindergarten Readiness Skills for our district’s 3, 4, and 5 year olds.

Our philosophy is based upon developmentally appropriate practices and the individual needs of the children. Programming is planned to meet each child’s social, emotional, cognitive, and physical needs as the child passes through predictable and sequential stages of development.  The child-directed, teacher supported exploration and learning experiences are designed so that each child can construct knowledge at their own developmental level and pace. Trust, social interaction, and play are the foundations on which children develop problem solving skills, language, and self esteem.  We recognize the importance of working closely with families and acknowledge family involvement as an essential and vital component of the total learning progress.  

Our multi-age preschool programs follow a sequential learning curriculum throughout the integrated program which allows all children, typically developing and children with disabilities, to gain a broader perspective of the real world.  This curriculum is an organized framework that guides developmentally appropriate practices in the learning environment and encompasses the developmental domains; social, emotional, cognitive, physical, to foster a child’s success through active learning.
