    • The staff is knowledgeable and very friendly! Their programs are fun for the kids, while being educational at the same time. Couldn’t have picked a better place to get our son ready for kindergarten! He looks forward to going each day!

    • 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!
