Building Blocks

To succeed in kindergarten and beyond, children must build their social, emotional, and physical skills along with their intellectual skills. Incorporating music and visual arts, our preschool program supports this important educational goal. Our preschool program serves children ages 3 to 5. On Tuesday we focus on language arts and individual learning activities, and on Thursday we focus on physical education, music, and visual arts. Both programs are free, and run 9:30 am to 2:00 pm during the school year. We also offer summer programming.

Girls on the Run

OPEN M is a host site for this transformational youth development program for girls in grades 3 through 8. The program teaches life skills through dynamic, interactive lessons and running games. At the end of each Girls on the Run session, the girls participate in a celebratory 5K. Girls on the Run takes place after school in fall and spring. The fall session is open to girls in grades 6 through 8, and the spring session is open to girls in grades 3 through 5. This program is not free, but scholarships are available.
