The Oxycocus Elementary School is home to our youngest population, 3 and 4 year old preschool students.The district has 6 pre-school disabled classes that service our students’ special needs. In addition, there are 7 tuition based classes.The students’ daily routine includes many language enriched experiences throughout the day. Students are provided the opportunity to explore all parts of literacy: listening, speaking, reading and writing. Children’s emergent reading andwriting behaviors are encouraged and fostered by their teachers. Math, science,social studies, world language and life skills are integrated into all aspectsof the daily routines through individual and small-group choice activities. In addition, the teachers provide an environment for the children that is safe, secure and consistent, allowing for the social and emotional growth of the students. Students also have opportunity for fine andgross motor activities and children are offered speech therapy, occupational andphysical therapy.
