Welcome to Oconee Preschool Academy
OPA provides a safe, nurturing environment that promotes social, emotional, cognitive and physical development of young children.
Children use their mind to explore and investigate the world around them. Problem solving skills and reasoning form the basis for early mathematical and scientific thinking.
Large Muscles – crawling, walking, running, and dancing are all activities that take place in the indoor and outdoor environment. Small muscle development occurs using our hands and fingers to feed ourselves, color, paint and sing songs.
Language and Literacy Development
Beginning with sounds, gestures, words and eventually reading and writing, children will learn how to communicate with others.
Emotional and Social Development
Children learn how to express themselves, gain self-control and how to relate to others. They develop special relationships with their peers and caregivers.
In February 2020, OPA 1 was awarded a 3 Star Quality Rating. Due to Covid-19, OPA 2’s QR visit was delayed. Quality Rated is set to resume visits in January 2021 and OPA 2 will be at the beginning of the list for visits. OPA is committed to providing high quality care not only through the QR process but in our everyday approach to learning and care for children.
Professional team that aims to respect your child’s feelings, to give them responsibility, independence and freedom to make choices.

The staff at OPA II provides an environment that helps instill the values and desire to learn that we are seeking for our daughter. From two-year olds learning to say Ma'am and Sir to facilitating age appropriate developmental skills, the staff has consistently set the bar high for its students to achieve. We have no doubt that through our efforts at home and the extension of the learning process at OPA II, our daughter and her peers will be more than prepared to begin kindergarten in a few years
OPA II has provided a nurturing environment that has made our daughter feel completely at ease each day in the facility. Each morning she expresses her excitement about going to school when we pull into the parking lot of OPA II. All members of the staff know her by name when she enters the facility and her face glows at the attention she receives. As a parent, it makes mornings much easier when the teachers have made your child feel so welcome in their classroom that the child leaps into her arms before waving good-bye to the parent
This is the OPA on Greensboro Hwy: I would recommend this facility to ANY family! The teachers here are incredibly awesome, caring, & fun and the facility is nice & fun-filled! The children are intelligent & well-behaved. The cost is a little higher than most day care's, but it is worth it. The curriculum is great and all the children have a BLAST
Absolutely Amazing!! This is by far the *BEST* preschool in the area & beyond!! My girls LOVE OPA & the staff is so caring & wonderful with the children! They truly care about our family & they hire only the very best teachers! Fabulous curriculum & Oconee Preschool Academy! The very best place possible to send your child
