OPENair Academy offers full-time and flexible part-time programs to meet the needs of North Range area families
We are dedicated to making childhood the most enriching experience possible with educational programs and a nurturing staff to support your child’s social, emotional, mental and physical development.
The philosophy behind our program is a hands-on approach providing each student with peer, environment and teacher interaction. Our school provides a place where children can grow in a stimulating, safe and challenging educational environment.
Consistent staffing allows children to bond with their teachers and adjust easily to their classroom. Each classroom is designed for safety, and has a variety of equipment and materials with which children can interact and advance their cognitive and fine motor skills. Our state of the art building is designed to provide a comfortable setting for children where they feel safe and free to discover their surroundings.

Children learn through play, and we invite you to visit and experience the difference our unique programs can make in a child’s life.
Our infant program has been specially designed to provide personalized care in a nurturing environment for infants 6 weeks to 12 months old.
In our two toddler classrooms, children age 12 to 36 months make great developmental strides from their first steps to potty training.
We offer daily adventures for lively toddlers, with special attention and loving guidance throughout the day. Creative, stimulating spaces offer opportunities for exploration and investigation. Designated learning centers emphasize interactive learning, arts, music, and the full spectrum of language development.
Early Preschool Program
Our Early Preschool program offers a challenging curriculum that is one of the most innovative for young children who are 2.5 to 3.5 years of age.
Children are developing emerging skills like vocabulary, language, gross and fine coordination, and social interaction. The skills of questioning, hypothesizing, exploring and problem solving done through songs, games, exploration and relationships are the main focus of our preschool program.
Within our Preschool program, students 3 – 4 years of age are provided a place where they can grow in a stimulating and challenging educational environment.
Structured daily schedules provide the stability necessary for fundamental learning. Children are given opportunities to work in an array of learning centers that include Science, Reading and Language, Math and Manipulatives, Art, Music, and Transportation.
Our Pre-Kindergarten program provides an enriched preschool experience that is designed for students, ages 4 – 5 years old.
Students focus on reading, handwriting, math, science, social and independence skills as they prepare for Kindergarten and beyond.
School Age Program
Before-school and after-school programs help promote a child’s love of learning, expand their interests and help build lasting friendships. Our school-age program offers children ages 5 through 12 an opportunity to gather with friends, explore science and cooking, dabble in music and drama, and challenge others in a wide variety of games. Our school-age playground has been specially designed with the older children in mind.
Separately, our Kindergarten Enrichment program provides ongoing academic and learning opportunities in literacy, science and math for the half-day Kindergarten students.
Additionally, Day Camp activities are provided during school holidays and in-service days.
