Our Philosophy

Ozaukee Child Care and Preschool’s (OCC) primary goal is to provide quality, affordable child care in a safe, sanitary environment.  In a caring and positive atmosphere, we create a warm and happy place for children to learn.  As we bridge the gap for working parents, we strive to build positive self-images, while building social skills and respect for others in a school setting.

Understanding that children learn best through play, classroom schedules are designed to provide a balance between structured activities and free play, as well as quiet and active play.  Age appropriate materials and activities, which are both child-oriented and teacher directed, are provided.

Our curriculum is planned according to a calendar of themes and units, which are relevant to the children and the world around them.  Activities are planned which emphasize the process rather than the product, fostering a sense of accomplishment and pride.

Acknowledging that children develop at their own rate, we treat each child equally, encouraging his/her natural love of learning.
