Why Choose Open Gate?

We think this article, written by a parent for our school newsletter, is the best testimonial for Open Gate. She explains: “Open Gate is this magical place where I can be present for both the treasures and the messes of childhood and where I can learn to be in the moment and soak it all up.”

“The Days Are Long but the Years Are Short”
