Discover Our Children's Place
History of OCP
OCP was started as a parent-participatory nursery school in 1992, operating out a recreation building in Burbank. Even though different rules and procedures have evolved and been adopted over the years, the basic goals and structure of the program have remained largely unchanged. Our graduates number more than 500!
OCP is a parent participation learn-through-play preschool program held at a local community center conveniently located at a Burbank park. The yearly school calendar closely follows Burbank USD. We strive to create a unique environment where learning and playing go hand-in-hand. Our parents work alongside our Teacher/Director to provide a warm, nurturing school for our children to begin to find their place in society. Our goals are to provide a school where self-esteem, creativity, and being a good citizen are the highest priorities. Most importantly, we want the children to feel safe, loved, and comfortable in expressing themselves.
We love OCP!
We chose OCP because it allowed us to feel closely connected to our son's first experience in preschool.
~ Jennifer & John, OCP parents
I have never seen a group of more dedicated, talented, creative, and hard working parents who are willing to roll up their sleeves and help out on anything and everything! It is pretty amazing to be a part of something like OCP!
~ Tanya, OCP parent
OCP is full of wonderful families we look forward to seeing. Our daughter loves it. It's her favorite part of the week.
~ Kim, OCP parent
It has been incredible to see how much our son has grown socially and emotionally in his first year at OCP.
~ Sean & Kat, OCP parents
OCP is special because of all the mammas and pappas that help out, and because Teacher Jennifer is so special.
