A Preschool and Kindergarten STREAM Education that Exceeds Any Other in Alpharetta, Cumming and Milton
For more than 20 years, Oak Grove Academy has given children the structure to learn and freedom to explore. We base our curricula on the latest research in early childhood education research and make sure children are guided by expert educators who know how to nurture children so that they can develop a deep love for learning.
We strongly believe in the power of introducing toddler, preschool and kindergarten children to a STREAM (Science, Technology, Reading and Writing, Engineering, Arts and Math) education because it has been proven to prepare their young minds for success as they continue their academic journey.
By getting an early introduction to STREAM, children not only become familiar with the topics that will dominate their curriculum in higher grades, but they become curious about them and want to learn more. When children are genuinely interested in the subjects they study, learning is more fun and rewarding. This instills a love for learning, which is one of the greatest gifts you can give your child.

The Four Cs of 21st Century Learning
We also utilize the ‘Four Cs of 21st Century Learning,’ an educational framework designed by the National Education Association to equip children with the skills they will need to succeed in today’s world.
1. Critical Thinking
With technology rapidly evolving, new challenges present themselves each day and the ability to find solutions to complex problems is a mandatory skill in today’s world. Developing one’s critical thinking ability is a crucial part of a modern, effective education and we make sure that our students engage in activities that build and sharpen their critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
The ability to express ideas is an essential skill in any field and children must learn the skills they will need to master the art of communication. At Oak Grove Academy, reading and writing is an integral part of the education experience. Children participate in a variety of activities that improve their social communication skills, such as speaking, listening, and cultural understanding.
From artistic projects and business startups to scientific breakthroughs, collaboration is a key to success in almost any endeavor. Learning the social skills to thrive in a team setting is one of the most valuable skills one can possess and is a pivotal part of an Oak Grove Academy education.
Creativity is what binds the first three Cs together. Without it, one wouldn’t be able to think of the solution to a problem, find the best ways to express it, or carry out a project with fellow collaborators. Innovation and originality are crucial in any field and it takes creative skills to achieve them. Learning how to think creatively is a skill that can be taught and we guide children in a way that encourages creative thinking.
