OSDC provides an educational and nurturing environment for infantstoddlersstompers (2-3 year olds), and preschoolers.

Children move through the center in groups, so that the infant group moves up together to the Toddler classroom, and so on.  We have found that this respects the important relationships the children have forged and also helps make these transitions smoother.

The Center provides care from 8:15 am to 5:30 pm, Monday through Friday. Hours for children enrolled five mornings are 8:15 am to 12:45 pm and afternoon children arrive at 1:00 pm to 5:30 pm. 

Two adults are always present in each classroom. There is a morning lead teacher and an afternoon lead teacher for each room who coordinate the program goals of each classroom, taking into consideration the individual needs of each diverse learner in their class. The youngest three classrooms also have a full time assistant teacher. 

The following chart describes the age ranges and adult to child ratios in each room:

Room Age Range Adult to Child Ratio Licensed # of Children 
Infant 3 - 15 months 1:3 or 2:7 7 
Toddler 12 months - 24 months 1:4 or 2:9 9 
Stomper 2 - 3 years 1:4 or 2:9 9 
Preschool 3 - 5 years 1:10 or 2:15 15
