Our Mission:

To cultivate a community of families and teachers working together to provide a high quality, safe, stimulating, and positive environment. Our curriculum enhances and fosters the physical, emotional, cognitive, creative, and social development of individual children through play-based learning and discovery. 

About Us

Oak Grove School (OGS) is a private, secular, nonprofit, educational facility, registered as a licensed child care center with a preschool focus. OGS was founded in 1991 by a few involved parents. Parents serve on the board of directors. The board meets quarterly.

We provide a creative and individualized learning environment with professional instruction for children from 3 to 6 years old during the school year and summer. Children must be essentially toilet-trained and ready for a mildly structured program with other children to attend the school.

OGS values diversity and we welcome children of any race, color, national, religious and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.

There are scholarships available to families based on need and the availability of funds. 


OGS is located at the corner of Wreath and Dickens Avenue, across from Cico Park. The address is 3115 Dickens Avenue, Manhattan, Kansas 66503. The school has a large fenced-in area, with its own play equipment. The school also uses Cico Park for its age-appropriate play equipment, large playing fields, nature trails, and pools during the summer session.
