Welcome to Open Door Learning Center Preschool (ODLC). Located in Leesburg, Virginia ODLC is a hands-on learning experience for children ages 2-7. We understand that a child’s preschool years are foundational in fostering confidence, acceptance of others, and a love of learning. The staff at ODLC focus on building social skills, teaching developmentally appropriate academics, and getting preschool students and their parents ready for Kindergarten.
“Open Door Learning Center creates a safe and supportive space for our children to grow and learn with their unique styles. The staff know how to work with our children’s specific needs, strengths, and challenges. The curriculum really works, and I could not be more appreciative of ODLC!” – Parent of ODLC student
Open Door Learning Center (ODLC) is a preschool located on Paxton Campus in Leesburg, Virginia–conveniently located near Exteter, Potomac Station, Raspberry Falls, Lakes at Red Rocks, Potomac Cross, and Downtown Leesburg. We have all-day and half-day preschool openings for children 2 years old to 7 years old. Our daily schedule offers a wide variety of activities including: learning exploration centers, gross and fine motor skill development, music activities, social skills building, library time, outside play and more! Moreover, our experienced teachers give individualized attention to our early learners at a low student to teacher ratio (typically 6:1). We also have potty training for all ages, so your early learner does not need to be toilet-trained to join ODLC!
Goals at ODLC
Our goal is for each preschool student to master all developmental milestones and/or mastery of our Starfall Standards prior to preschool graduation and entering kindergarten. As a result, students who master these learning block skills, will thrive in a mainstream kindergarten environment. Through our program, students will also have the unique opportunity to learn behavioral, social, emotional and pre-academic skills in a natural (play-based) setting. In addition, we individualize each preschool child’s educational experience so that EVERY child can succeed!
Teaching practices at the school are derived primarily from applied behavior analysis (ABA). Some of these practices include: positive reinforcement, direct instruction, continuous measurement of learning, and strategic data analysis. We offer a wide range of enriching activities that focus on building each child’s emotional, social, cognitive and physical skills. Our various teaching methods include hands-on teaching, traditional classroom instruction, and individualized instruction.
