Our Philosophy

Children at Oak Lane are nurtured in a manner consistent with the Quaker testimonies of simplicity, peace, integrity, community, equality, and stewardship. We incorporate these testimonies in everything we do. Our focus is on the whole child and we strive to provide a safe and nurturing environment in which children can learn through structured play. We establish developmentally appropriate goals for every age group, which we achieve through hands-on activities with various materials, small group interactions and outdoor play. Low student to teacher ratios allow the teacher to adjust daily activities to the class as well as to the individual child. Children are exposed to numbers, letters and other concepts through play and experimentation. One of our goals is to unleash their curiosity for the world around them and nurture their imagination.

Parent involvement is an integral part of Oak Lane’s success and continuous improvement. Parents are always welcome in the classrooms and often help out with other tasks such as a spring cleaning and organizing fundraising events. Oak Lane’s vision is to go beyond providing a service and create a community that includes the entire family. Throughout the year we host dinners in which the entire family is invited. On special days such as Pancake & Pajama day we welcome everyone, from siblings to grandparents. We believe that when the whole family is involved, the children are more likely to feel that the day care is a safe place for them.

Programs We offer several schedule options, which may be combined to best suit your needs. For example, you can enroll your child for 2 mornings, 1 full day and 2 afternoons. Our tuition rates (2014-2015) are adjusted accordingly and you only pay for the time your child is at Oak Lane. We also offer drop-in care if space is available.

Schedule Options

Full Day Care  – 7:30 am – 6:00 pm

Morning Care – 7:30 am – 1:00 pm
