Welcome to Open Gate Nursery School!
“What will you find if you open the gate? Fun and friends, I just can’t wait!”
For 44 years, Redwood City children and their parents have found fun, learning, and community behind our gate. Open Gate Nursery School is a parent-participation, play-based preschool with classes for children 2-5.
In Open Gate’s nurturing environment, children develop socially, intellectually, and physically, in an atmosphere of warmth and trust. Play, stimulating new experiences, adult-child interaction, and time with friends combine to support children’s development. We guide children in cooperation, respect, and non-exclusionary play.
Parents learn and grow, too. We hone our positive parenting skills through observation, classroom participation, and parent education classes. Grown up Open Gators have a strong sense of community — we love our school!
We are allergy sensitive, and have a nursery on site for younger siblings. Open Gate is a warm and wonderful place for your family to learn, share and grow together. Won’t you join us?
We are a proud member of the California Council of Parent Participation Nursery Schools (CCoPPNC).
Our parent education classes are associated with the Sequoia District Adult School.
