Founded on the belief that all children are special and unique gifts from God, The Academy at Osage Hills offers pre-school classes for three, four and five year olds.

"Children grow and learn at different rates that are appropriate for their individual development. The teaching staff will support, guide and direct each child in their learning based on these differences," The Academy said in a brochure. "We believe that each child is a learner. We believe that each child is gifted in at least one learning domain."

The Academy at Osage Hills uses curriculum based on the belief that children learn through play, self discovery, active manipulation of their environment, life experiences and communication with peers and adults. The learning domains explored include personal and social development, language and literacy, mathematical thinking, scientific thinking, creative expression and physical development.
