Each class day involves free-play, where children interact with kitchen toys, dolls, trucks, playdoh, painting, as well as interact with other students during story time, outside time, snack time and discussion/music time. The children also participate in cooking activities. As students move from two-year old studies to three year-old classes, Open Door incorporates more traditional nursery rhymes. The four year-old classes begin reading and math. A music teacher meets with each class separately once a week. A Spanish teacher meets with the four year-old classes once a week.
