Our Approach

Welcome to Open Center for Children, where we believe in the power of play. Our play-responsive curriculum honors the natural inclination of children to explore, create, and make meaning through hands-on experiences. We understand that play is the foundation for learning and strive to create a dynamic and engaging environment that sparks children's curiosity and fosters their innate love for discovery. Rain or shine, we embrace the wonders of nature, going outside in all weather to provide children with the opportunity to connect with the natural world. From our youngest toddlers to our curious preschoolers, we cultivate a nurturing community where each child's voice is valued, fostering their sense of agency and supporting their overall development both as an individual and as a member of a community. Join us as we embark on an inspiring journey of growth, creativity, and joy-filled learning!
