O2B Turned 20 on August 24th, 2018!
To celebrate our 20th year we've asked our employees, members and guests to complete 20 acts of kindness! Feel free to do the same.
Nationally Accredited Preschools & Afterschools
Our Preschools are designated by the State of Florida as Gold Seal Quality Child Care Facilities! All of our Preschool and Afterschool Programs are either accredited or are going through the accreditation process. The accreditation is from a nationally recognized association whose standards substantially meet or exceed those established by the National Association for the Education of Young Children!
We WON a new playground!
Our employees, families and the community voted for O2B Kids in an on-line competition, and as the top vote-getter we received an innovative playground equipment system from Imagination Playground valued at over $6,000! The playground encourages learning, social development, movement and above all, the kids LOVE it!
