Little Oaks is part of Oakhill School and this makes for an easy transition from the Pre-Prep Phase to Grade 1 in the Foundation Phase.

Our values at Little Oaks include:

  • Creating a caring community of learners
  • Teaching to enhance development and learning
  • Planning a curriculum to achieve important goals
  • Assessing children’s development and learning
  • Partnering with parents

Little Oaks has spacious and well-equipped classrooms accommodating Grade 000 (3 to 4 year olds), Grade 00 (4 to 5 year olds) and Grade R (5 to 6 year olds) with an extra all-purpose classroom for assemblies, music, movement, dance and drama rings.  All teaching staff are well qualified and have a good understanding of child development.  There is a Teacher Assistant in each class.  All staff at Oakhill are also given opportunities for ongoing training and development to stay ahead of educational trends globally.

Our curriculum is centred around the child and developmentally appropriate teaching strategies and activities encourage the holistic development of each child ensuring that they have every opportunity to reach their unique full potential.  We believe in discovering strengths and learning styles in each child. Each child is seen as an individual and every child matters to us.  All the domains of development and learning such as physical, social, emotional and cognitive are important and closely related.  Children’s learning and development in one domain influence and are influenced by what takes place in other domains.  Play is important for developing self-regulation as well as for promoting language, cognition and social competence.

We use Interactive Whiteboards when teaching Literacy and Numeracy to the Grade R’s as we believe technology is an important aspect of 21st Century learning and thinking. Grade R’s are also taught how to use an iPad, as well as other basic computer skills through educational games.
