Opportunity School  The purpose of Opportunity School is
to provide a developmentally appropriate
preschool for 2, 3, 4,
and 5 year old children
so that they can expand their world
with a variety of materials and experiences and to foster positive
relationships with our children and adults outside the immediate
family in a safe and loving environment.  We provide services for
Ottawa and the surrounding communities.

Our Mission  The mission of Ottawa Opportunity School is to
serve children and families in our community by providing a high
quality, affordable early childhood education program and by
establishing a working partnership between family and school.

Our  program provides an early childhood educational
experience to children with a need; especially children who
would not otherwise have the opportunity for preschool
experiences.  The school will attempt to serve at least one
scholarship student to each paying student without regard to
sex, race, color, creed, national or ethnic origin.

Ottawa Opportunity School shall be regarded as part of the
mission program of the First Presbyterian Church of Ottawa and
its outreach program.
