A Great Beginning to a Lifetime of Learning

Live Oak Morning School's Preschool Program, "Beginnergarten," prepares children from two to four years old for all elements of Kindergarten. It is our belief at Live Oak Morning School that all children develop at their own special rate. The school's emphasis is on helping your young child gain a positive self-concept and establish a strong foundation for future growth. By acknowledging that most preschool children are in the sensory motor stage of cognitive development and benefit from a variety of experiences in a safe, nurturing environment, Live oak Morning School helps children reach their fullest potential.
