What stands out for me is the positive and loving vibe when I go into Oak. The environment is carefully designed to inspire young minds, such as the beautiful paintings on the wall of trees and various toy stations, and library. The student body is very small and collegial. What I love is that the teachers are accessible and it feels like a family vibe. We know most of the parents in the school, we frequently go to each of the children's birthday parties (including the teachers) and the children are not siloed into classrooms by age. There are mixed classes where some of the older students can model appropriate behaviours for the younger students. A sense of community is promoted within the school by encouraging all students and parents to take an active role.
