Forest Grove Early Learning School

Children Attending Junior and Senior Kindergarten

9:00am – 1:00pm, 9:00am – 3:00pm


Oakville preschool programs - jk & skA superior alternative to the over-crowded classrooms and limited resources offered in the public school system, Forest Grove is devoted to providing superior education when it matters most.

With program options that best suit your family’s needs Forest Grove delivers its custom built curriculum for your child’s appropriate developmental stage and learning style.

Rather than spend an entire day (and school year!) in a single room, Forest Grove offers our students three spacious rooms equip with the resources to focus on art, science or drama. Children have a rotary schedule that allows them to enjoy all three spaces during the week and keeps our school days new and exciting

At Forest Grove we understand the need for a modern curriculum, in an ever-changing educational landscape. In addition to our four year program, Forest Grove offers drama, art, music, innovation, and S.T.E.M. classes as we best prepare our students for future education.

Therefore, by attending year three and four of Forest Grove’s exceptional four year program, your child will be far more prepared for entry into the school system at the grade 1 level.
