Open Arms Christian Child Development Center

Open Arms is a Christian child development center offering programs for infants through pre-K, junior kindergarten, private kindergarten and kg-5th school age care.

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.

Today our beginning preschool and our school age summer camp went on scavenger hunts. They were excited to find the treasure at the end of their hunt!

Our teachers have the freedom to choose themes that fit their classes and are fun and engaging. This week is a good example of having multiple themes at the same time. Our Prek is learning about dinosaurs, our intermediate preschool is learning about fairy tales, and our beginning preschool and toddlers are learning about pirates!
