Our Values

We’ve come a long way, but our values remain constant. RisingOaks is about creativity, learning, community, advocacy, and love.

It is because these values are so firmly rooted in our history, from the beginning as Owl Child Care to our present and future as RisingOaks Early Learning, that we are poised for the future and will continue to provide families with meaningful early learning experiences.

CREATIVITY:

As children learn how to learn through play, it naturally sparks a child's creativity. Discovering new ideas and concepts fosters their imagination.

LEARNING:

Our intuitiveness and expertise allow us to help children explore and develop their curiosity. Our expert educators identify each child’s uniqueness and teach them the tools that help them reach their full potential.

COMMUNITY:

Children, their parents, educators and staff belong here. We nurture our community so that everyone who is part of it feels at home. This creates a safe and harmonious place to learn.
