PreKindergarten Academy

Beginning in the fall of 2020, OK Kids will no longer be offering the PreKindergarten Academy option within the School Age Child Care program.  We are referring families that are seeking preschool-age options to the Discovery Center in Maple Plain, which houses the Orono Schools’ Early Learning programs.  

Orono Early Learning programs include:

  • Discovery Kids – educationally-focused child care  
  • Early Learning Preschool – with wrap around care options
  • ECFE – Early Childhood Family Education parent/child classes
With questions call the Discovery Center at 952-746-5896 or email

OK Kids Prekindergarten Academy!

The OK Kids Prekindergarten Academy is highly regarded as a forward-thinking, comprehensive, rigorously researched approach that honors creativity and respects the role that teachers play in making learning exciting and relevant for every child. 

Join us for an enrichment program that will inspire your child’s creativity. Our weekly studies introduce many skills through science discovery, art, math, phonics, physical skills, stories and fine motor skills. There is also lots of time for free play and fun with other children.

Our classroom’s creative ideas engage children and start them on the road to learning. The children learn and discover through special projects and will also explore nature and the environment. Our innovative curriculum will help prepare your child for kindergarten.

Scheduling options to fit your needs!

Your child can attend anywhere from two to five days per week. See the options below:

FYI  – During the before and after PreK Academy hours, the preschool students will be integrated with Orono Kindergarten students.
