Nestled inside a private home, Norwood Open School is an environment intentionally prepared to nurture the intellectual and holistic development of children ages two months to three years (and beyond). The mixed age classroom in which the children can move about freely, encourages children to work, play, and learn at their own pace following their own natural intuition and curiosity. With a collaborative effort between the guide and parents, the school aims to assist all children in becoming socially aware, self-confident, independent members of the school (and global) community. 
Norwood Open School admits students of any race, gender, religious affiliation, national or ethnic origin, and qualified handicaps to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate in violation of any law or statute in the administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, financial program, or school-administered programs.

What Parents Are Saying

Here are a few words from some of our happy parents!

I have known Jamie for several years and have always been impressed by her approach to child care. She fosters an environment that allows children to grow independently. Her approach evokes confidence and all around happiness in my children. It is without a doubt that my children receive nurturing care and attention in a safe environment.

I had the pleasure of working with the owner of this school back in 2013. She was always kind and patient with all of the children and kept a calm and peaceful environment. She created simplistic and meaningful materials for children ages birth to three years old. I loved learning from her and highly suggest Norwoods Open for your child!

- Kara

My boys (2 and 4) started going to school here several weeks ago and I already see such a huge difference in their behavior and abilities. They absolutely love going to school and tell me regularly that it’s their favorite thing. I can’t recommend Norwood Open School and Miss Jamie and Miss Jennifer highly enough. We love it!
