Our goal is to exceed your expectations when it comes to high quality early childhood education. Your child will be nurtured, loved and encouraged to learn through hands-on" Active Participatory Learning. Oxford Early Learning Center adopted High Scope as its early childhood curriculum. In conjunction, Oxford Early Learning Center is an International Baccalaureate program, which is a perfect marriage with the High Scope Curriculum.

Within our curriculum, our classrooms offer inquiry-based learning in an exploratory program. Children use classroom materials to investigate,discover and learn. Additionally, the role of the teachers is to foster children's learning by engaging them in intentional play, which is based on the children’s interests and specific learning objectives.

Throughout our program teachers hold meaningful conversations in English, Spanish, and Chinese. This communication opportunity forms authentic relationships with the students, their families, and the community. As communication is modeled students learn to utilize words to negotiate and problem solve.

           
In using this world-renowned, researched, and validated curriculum Oxford Early Learning Center will provide an education that challenges all students to achieve their maximum potential in academics, arts, and athletics and prepares them to succeed in a global society.
