We are better together. 

Oak Park Early Learning Academy will positively impact Richmond's community with its commitment to exceptional child care services. Our registered childcare ministry will support our current labor force by providing much-needed child care services for parents with small children. And, our daycare will prepare Richmond's future labor force by offering early educational services for long-term success in school and in life.

We will accomplish this goal by providing child care services that utilize low children to staff ratios, the highest standards of usable space for every child,  a formal curriculum and high quality learning games and equipment. Plus, Oak Park Early Learning Academy aims to attract and retain talented, accredited teachers, as well as provide ongoing professional development and training opportunities for our staff.  Our approach will be to combine talented teachers and a high quality curriculum to foster cognitive, social, emotional and physical development within each child.
