with love and humility,
Dowd, Erin, and Heidi
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit our website and learn more about The Oaks Charlotte. We are so glad you stopped by!
We want you to hear us say, “This isn’t going to be for everyone, and that’s OK!”. This community was birthed out of a desire and vision for something we wanted for our children and families. Our hope is that there are others in our community who may want the same thing.
Why did we start The Oaks? Because we wanted something different. We wanted an education for children that celebrated God given curiosity, that developed the holistic child as an image bearer of God, that taught through experiential learning environments, that equipped children with tools to self regulate and that shaped not just the mind but shepherded the heart.
We want to blaze a new trail in education, with the excitement of innovation and inspiration, with hints of the familiar, while maintaining a standard of excellence.
Again, thank you again for your interest. We hope that in some small way we can play a part in displaying His splendor to our family members, neighbors, city and world through
