About Us

At Open Gate, we are:

  • Play based: Children develop best through play, and learn to love school and trust others.  Play based preschool education provides the best foundation for later academic growth.  In fact, play is great for kids of all ages.
  • Parent-participation: Children and families grow together, so parents join our classrooms and work together to run our wonderful school.
  • Learners: In our fantastic parent education program, we learn about child development, expand our parenting tool kit, and get support for our challenges.
  • Welcoming: If you have a preschooler, you are welcome here!
  • Allergy-sensitive:  Nut or other allergies?  No problem.
  • A ton of fun: You might go your whole life without finding another community as supportive as ours.  Don’t miss it!
