Local preschool celebrates 50 years

. January 1, 2018.

Olivet Christian Nursery School (OCNS) started with one class five decades ago. Since, the school has seen tremendous growth and is now celebrating 50 years of preschool education. OCNS was founded as a parent cooperative program, designed to allow parents and caregivers direct involvement in a child’s early education. Parents and teachers work together to foster a lifelong love of learning in a positive, creative environment.

The core values of play-based learning and preparing children for kindergarten continues today and Olivet is still recognized for its approach in nurturing a child’s imagination, creativity and social skills. In 2017, OCNS was selected for the 2017 “Best of Sylvania Award” in the Preschool Category by the Sylvania Awards Program. Registration for the 2018-2019 school year begins mid-month.
