White Oak Early Learning Center is excited to welcome the 2023-2024 school year.  After many years spread throughout various elementary schools, we are thrilled to be able to assemble our entire developmental preschool and community preschool programs under one roof. 

2023-2024 preschool options include:

  • Full Day Community Preschool
  • Half Day Developmental Preschool

We are proud to offer curriculum that is custom tailored to the academic and developmental needs of preschool and pre-kindergarten students. White Oak ELC educators will teach foundational academic curriculum and they will provide multiple social-emotional learning opportunities for students. This effort is designed to prepare our youngest learners not only for kindergarten but for a lifelong love of learning. 

More detailed information can be found below, as well as a personal welcome from Mrs. Mize, the principal.

New School Year Information

A Note from the Principal

It is with great excitement that I welcome you to the new White Oak Early Learning Center (WOELC). I am blessed to be starting my 34th year in Avon Schools.  My teaching career started right here at White Oak many years ago and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to build and grow Avon's very first Early Learning Center. 

For the 2023-2024 school year, we will have eight full day classes and twelve sections of developmental preschool. We offer our children a large indoor gross motor area, a large age-appropriate playground adjacent to an enclosed community garden, and easy access to the Avon Outdoor Learning Center. Each renovated preschool classroom has a large bathroom, individual coat and backpack cubbies, a variety of flexible seating and table-space, and lots of natural sunlight.  Our color scheme includes natural earthy tones, with highlights of orange, green, yellow, and blue.  Most importantly, it is going to be a school where your child will develop a lifelong love of learning and exploration.

In addition to the Early Learning Center space, Avon Community School Corporation (ACSC) has a large state-of-the-art Professional Development Center.  This center, which is attached to the WOELC and separated by a secure set of locked doors, will be home to not only ACSC-hosted professional development, but will also be available for use by members of the community.

Phase two of renovations are underway, with an additional six classrooms being renovated.  

Together, we will be sowing seeds and growing greatness.  It is going to be an exciting year! 

Yours truly,

Karie Mize
