Our curriculum stimulates each child’s innate curiosity and exploratory nature to prepare children for lifelong learning.

What Parents are Saying

Our greatest advocates are also our closest friends.

"I appreciate that the teachers at the OBFC take a genuine interest in my children's development. Michelle noticed that my 3 year old was having trouble with using scissors. She then took the time to relay that info to me and provide us with some papers with shapes with cutting guidelines to take!"

Silly Songs

You Will Need:

Imagination

Directions:

Create lyrics to any familiar tune, such as “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star." Sing about what you see as you are driving, favorite toys or games, family members, bed time, etc.

Tip:

Repeat words often -- it makes songs easier to learn. Use nonsense words when you can’t think of anything else.
