Our services are provided through a variety of programs that assist all children in reaching their potential.  The Omaha Public Schools program capitalizes on the natural curiosity of children by designing meaningful learning experiences to promote language, literacy, cognitive, physical and social/emotional development. Instruction is designed to accommodate a broad range of children’s individual needs, learning styles, experiences and interests. Classroom learning will include independent learning, small and large group learning and experiential learning. The purpose of the Omaha Public Schools Early Childhood program is to provide educational opportunities, which enable all students to achieve their potential and develop a love of learning.
