The Open Center for Children has two classrooms: the Green Room for children from 2.3 to 3.3 years and the Blue Room for children 3.4 through 5 years of age. The center’s curriculum is designed around a vision that addresses the guidelines, criteria and objectives to meet both state and national requirements. The curriculum is also designed to help children develop the tools necessary for living in a diverse world where the ability to settle disputes peacefully is increasingly important.
Our primary concern is to provide a safe, caring, and responsive environment where children’s social and emotional development is supported by a nurturing and well-trained staff. The center has areas for small motor activities (writing, math, puzzles, science etc.), large-motor activities (balance beam, basketball, Big Blocks, etc.), sensory play, dramatic play, quiet reading spaces, and art and creative expression.
