Words matter, especially when spoken by our parents.

"I cannot say enough wonderful things about the little slice of heaven that our family refers to as ORPP. I should state that the most wonderful thing if all is the fact that our son, River, loves school and looks forward to each Monday (as it begins another praise-worthy week at ORPP!).

Mrs. Sherri welcomes families into the facility with a warm smile, kind words, and clear expectations for families and teachers. The teachers at ORPP hold students accountable to a rigorous and meaningful curriculum with clear learning objectives; these objectives are communicated to families on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis. Classrooms are adorned with student created materials and show a passion for a literacy rich environment!  Students are cared for-they are loved-and they are comfortable within their learning environment to grow and learn. Class sizes are especially designed for individualized instruction and attention on a daily basis. The school even offers a variety of extracurricular activities in an effort to reach the whole child; KiddieKickers, Little Jumpers, musicals and plays.

How lucky am I to be able to give this school, the teachers, and the experiences to my son; I am forever thankful for the time spent within the walls of ORPP. River will be prepared for Kindergarten in spirit, mind, and body!"

"We have had a wonderful experience with ORPP. Our children have attended since they were in the toddler class and every year has been excellent. We have had nearly every teacher in the school and each one loved our kids like their own. They take great care to teach each child new things at their own pace and at a level appropriate for them. The teachers are very hands-on and the skills my children have gained from fine motor development through playing with play doh to using scissors and academic skills gained like learning letters and sounds and learning to read have all been immeasurable ways to grow confidence in themselves. They have learned personal responsibility and practical skills that have prepared them for kindergarten. The relationships they have been able to make with other classmates has been a joy to watch develop as well. We highly recommend ORPP!

"When we first relocated to Oak Ridge from Charlotte 3.5 years ago, I was heartbroken to leave behind our beloved preschool that my oldest child had attended. I was worried that I wouldn’t find a preschool that met my “checklist”. I am so thankful that I found Oak Ridge Presbyterian Preschool! My 2nd child attended as a 3 year old and completed the Pre-K program; my 3rd child attended as a 3 year old and is currently in the Pre-K program. Oak Ridge Presbyterian Preschool has checked everything off my “must have” list and has completely topped every expectation I could have ever had from a preschool.


From the moment I first toured the preschool, the director Sherri Rhyne has made the school feel like a home. I respect the fact she provided honest feedback regarding the proper placement for our oldest child. I adore the fact that she stands at the door, every single morning, and greets each child by name; my children feel so special and loved. This is just one example of the many personal touches this preschool provides which contributes to such a loving environment. I was in search of a preschool that was simultaneously play-based yet would provide my children with a solid educational foundation to prepare them for kindergarten. 


I was pleased to hear from my oldest child’s kindergarten teacher that they can often tell which children attended Oak Ridge Presbyterian Preschool because the graduates of the preschool enter kindergarten well prepared. The small class size at the preschool lends itself to the children (and parents!) making great friends; it also means the students receive individual attention in the classroom. The communication from all of the teachers has been top-notch, the curriculum has been organized and most importantly, the love, acceptance and encouragement my children have received has been consistent. I have been moved to tears multiple times by the little acts of love the teachers and director have shown my children. Now I can’t imagine ever leaving Oak Ridge, in large part because I can’t imagine my children attending any preschool other than Oak Ridge Presbyterian!"
