at the Open School


Preschool at the Open School uses a play based curriculum. This means that your child will learn the Colorado Academic Standards through play. The learning environment is structured around each individual child’s interest and we all collaborate together on what we will be learning next. Our students guide the learning in our room. Once the students decide on what they want to learn about I will incorporate the Colorado Academic Standards into the learning environment. The good news with this is, your children are learning foundational skills while having FUN!
