White Oak Early Learning Center (WOELC) is excited to welcome the 2024-2025 school year. We offer two different programs:

  • Community Preschool, which is a full day parent-paid program. Children must be fully potty trained and parents are required to transport to and from preschool.
  • Developmental Preschool, which is a half-day program for students who have been evaluated and determined to have a disability which requires supports and services of a licensed teacher and/or therapists.  Our developmental program is a continuum of supports, which includes walk-in speech services, language group, inclusion, and developmental preschool services.

We are proud to offer curriculum that is custom tailored to the academic and developmental needs of preschool and pre-kindergarten students. WOELC educators teach foundational academic curriculum and 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.

2024-2025 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 35th 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 2024-2025 school year, we have 14 classrooms serving the needs of Avon's earliest learners. We offer our children 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 one and two of renovations are complete. We are excited for the final phase of updates, which will include updates to our indoor motor lab, new STEM space, and our library.

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

Yours truly,

Karie Mize
