At Open Space, we encourage development of the whole child by creating both a stimulating and nurturing environment. We not only provide hands-on materials but also engaging experiences that encourage children to learn through exploration, discovery, and play.
Our program is rooted in Piaget and Vygotsky’s belief that children learn best through self discovery and play while engaging with their peers and caregivers. We believe in providing a child-centered, play and discovery based curriculum.
Play is important for children, it is a means by which they can be active explorers of their environment, active creators of new experiences, and active participants in their own development. At Open Space, our program is child-centered, play and discovery based because we believe that the benefits children gain from play help them develop the cognitive, social and emotional skills they need in order to grow and thrive.
