Each child is unique.  At OPA, our programs are designed with flexibility
to support children’s individual rates of development and styles of
learning.  We provide an atmosphere where each child feels secure in
their environment and loved by all.
Learning happens naturally through play.  Play for young children involves
interacting with people, manipulating objects and making discoveries in
the world around them.  This type of learning is developmentally
appropriate for children ages infants through four years.

Our programs promote play and focus on developmental skills such as:
