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.

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.

We have some exciting news to share with you!
Effective January 1, 2020 our After School-Age program will have new tuition rates!

The new tuition rate will be $88.00/weekly!

This will still include everything you expect from our program: dedicated homework time, afternoon snack, Bible time, individual learning centers, as well as outdoor play.
We recognized a need in the community for competitive rates and wanted to make sure our families received the news first-hand.

We’d love to have our parents share this wonderful information with their friends and other families that might want to take advantage of making a change for their children in the new year.

We will be running a Referral Credit promotion through January 31st for all current families: once a new family is enrolled for 90 days, both families will receive $200 tuition credit.

Contact [email protected] with any questions!

One of our favorite reasons for the season is to look at and display all of our OA families' Christmas cards at our front entrance. We hope you will join others and add to our wall soon.

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

Christmas has arrived at Open Arms!

Our Savior's Way Lutheran Church

Pastor Mann will be retiring in January 2020, just a few months away. Our Savior’s Way would like to give Pastor Mann a gift that is just as big as his impact has been on us! As a congregation, we are going to handwrite a complete copy of the Bible and present it to him. This is a large project and we will only succeed if we all work together!
