Open Arms Christian Child Development Center

Open Arms is a Christian child development center offering programs for infants through pre-K, full day kindergarten and after school care for k-5th.

Open Arms Christian Child Development Center is a not-for-profit ministry of Our Savior's Way Lutheran Church, providing a preschool program of the highest quality designed to meet the needs of families in our community. At Open Arms, each child is guided to develop to his/her potential in every aspect of life within the sheltering and nurturing relationships of Christian love. We operate our center assuming that each child is an individual and must be allowed to grow and learn at his/her own rate and to develop a healthy self-image. At Open Arms we will help each child to grow spiritually, emotionally, physically, socially, and intellectually. A preschool and/or childcare experience frequently represents the child's first separation from home. It is a first experience in learning that other adults can be helpful and loving. Children have much social learning to do. This is accomplished best in an atmosphere of love and concern for the needs of each child. Programs are planned to encourage and develop individual strengths and abilities, while helping your child to understand the value of cooperation and interaction with others. This is achieved through working, learning, playing, and sharing with other children as well as adults.

Mission: Our mission is to provide a nurturing and safe environment for the development of children and families, in the community, through a loving, Christ-centered, Bible-based child care and preschool.

The Foxes class participated in a really fun project this month. Across North America, 543 teachers/classes participated in a Valentine’s Letter Exchange. Each class sent 23 letters out to schools along with a handmade Valentine. The Foxes class has received 9 back so far. Check out the map in the PreK wing to watch more arrive and read the wonderful messages that they have received.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-24

16 Rejoice always, 17 pray continually, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 19 Do not quench the Spirit. 20 Do not treat prophecies with contempt 21 but test them all; hold on to what is good, 22 reject every kind of evil. 23 May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24 The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it.

Our new Transitional Intermediate Preschool classroom, the Periwinkles, officially started today. Everyone was excited to see Ms. Ana back in her own classroom, along with Ms. Satya. This program was developed to meet the needs of learners who do not meet the birthdate cut off to participate in the Intermediate Preschool program, but turn 3 between October and March, are potty trained, and demonstrating mastery of the Beginning Preschool curriculum.

These are good illness reminders. See our parent handbook at www.openarms-ccdc.org for health procedures. Let's keep Open Arms students and teachers healthy!
