Established in 1978, Yellow Balloon Preschool (YBP) is a part-day preschool for children 3 to 5 years of age. Our purpose is to provide developmentally appropriate experiences and unique activities in a Christian environment. This allows our children to develop their individual and unique potential socially, emotionally, intellectually and physically.
Because young children learn most effectively by doing, our room is set up in learning centers: art, home living, blocks, math, science, manipulative, sand and water table, construction and language arts. The centers’ materials change weekly based on our unit of study. The centers allow children to make choices, move freely and independently and grow in areas of need. They also allow children to learn individually or in small groups and for teachers to take advantage of moments of readiness, interest and desire.
Classes are held in the morning for the younger children on Tuesday and Thursday from 9:00-11:30. Older children are enrolled in the Monday/ Wednesday/Friday class from 9:00 – 1:00. Enrollment is limited to 18 children per class with two teachers. YBP begins following Labor Day and follows the Owasso Public School Calendar.
A Parent Information Night is held in February for prospective parents with visits during class time in March. Prior to the first day of school an orientation is held for children and parents. For every child enrolled an annual parent/teacher conference is held to share our written observations.
