Touch-a-Truck 2018


Open Gate Nursery School’s Seventh Annual Touch-a-Truck fundraiser was held on Saturday, April 28th, 2018! Thank you to our sponsors, truck participants, and families that attended in support of Open Gate Nursery School! Stay tuned for a save the date for our 8th annual event in 2019.

Touch-a-Truck is a hands-on family event designed to give children an opportunity to see and touch their favorite things on wheels, and to meet the men and women who operate these vehicles.  We are proud to offer this fun event to our beloved Redwood City community and neighbors from around the Bay Area.

Your admission fee supports our play-based community preschool, where both parents and children learn and grow together. Find out how you can become an Open Gator while you’re there!
