    • My son started going to OTR in the Fall of 2013, in less than a year I have watched him grow tremendously! He knows his alphabet, numbers (1-15), colors and he just turned 3 last week! My son loves going to school every day and enjoys his teachers and his classmates. We are VERY happy to be a part of the OTR family!
