We believe each child has an inherent curiosity and a natural thirst for learning. Orlando Day Nursery’s educational philosophy is based on the belief that young children build or “construct” their knowledge of the world — they are "active learners." This means learning is not simply a process of adults giving information to children. Rather, children discover things through direct experience with people, objects, events, and ideas. They learn best from pursuing their own interests while being actively supported and challenged by adults. ODN teachers are as active and involved as children in the classroom. They thoughtfully provide materials, plan activities, and talk with children in ways that both support and challenge what children are experiencing and thinking.

Mission: Opening our doors to all children to prepare them for a successful future.
ODN commits to working with parents and families as the child’s primary teacher. We recognize that being a parent is one of the most difficult and rewarding jobs. We will support families in their role as they advocate for their child or children.
Vision: To provide high-quality educational programs that increase children’s chances of achieving future educational success and becoming productive members of society.
At ODN we believe each child is important and that we have a critical role to play in positively impacting their lives.
