Oldham County Preschool is designed to meet the needs of all children by implementing the Kentucky Early Childhood Standards as well as addressing individual student needs. We believe that families are the primary teachers of children and that the design of our program must recognize and support the strengths of the families. We support the philosophy and principles of active learning, positive adult-child interactions, a child-friendly learning environment, and a consistent daily routine.
In partnership with family and community, Oldham County Preschool will surround the whole child with a safe, rigorous, and rich environment with intentional opportunities for learning, exploration, and discovery.
