We are so excited to be starting our 46th successful year as the premier preschool in Laramie!  This year we will continue to grow our commitment to providing a quality education to every student; with goals of long term academic success; beginning with superior Kindergarten readiness.  Ms. Shelly and the Teachers have put together a full offering of enrichment activities available for our students to provide a well-rounded approach to their early education.  Your children will come home with delightful stories to share of fun, active, educational activities!

We are thrilled and fortunate to welcome back Ms.  Shelly as our Director.  Ms.  Shelly has done a stellar job governing the daily operations of The OPEN SCHOOL. She is always accessible to all the parents and families to visit, answer any questions, or concerns.  She is a wealth of information and invaluable to the success of THE OPEN SCHOOL.

As a Board, we are very grateful and happy to welcome back the BEST TEACHERS!

As mentioned above, the teachers are busy preparing and planning; curriculum, projects, field trips, and their classrooms.  You will soon be hearing from your student’s teacher with classroom information.  Until then please take this time to note upcoming events:
