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.

It’s baby animals (like chicks, bunnies, and birds) week at Open Arms as we peep, jump, and tweet right into spring! #openarmsccdc #spring

We’re not fooling around when we say Happy April! Hope you all enjoy this beautiful month. 😊🌸 #openarmsccdc #april

Our curriculum theme is “flowers and gardens” this week, and Open Arms students are enjoying bringing spring to their classrooms! #openarmsccdc #flowers #spring

Loudoun County Public Schools are closed Friday, March 29 and Monday, April 1 for teacher workdays. Therefore, our Half-Day Preschool classes and Owls Kindergarten Class will be closed as well. Hope you enjoy the long weekend!

This year, our annual "Spring Fling" is going to be a school/church combined event called: Rise Up with Jesus! Make sure to stop by on Saturday, April 13th from 10am-12pm as we explore the Easter story using games, activities, learning stations, give-away items, and more. Join us on this high-flying Easter adventure as we celebrate that Jesus is alive!

Spring has sprung at Open Arms! #openarmsccdc #preschool #spring

Today was our last day of Lutheran Schools Week, and our children wore their class T-shirts. Check out some of the cool shirts they created! Remember that everyone is invited to come to church on Sunday at 11am to sing “All and All.” Wear your new t-shirts, and we hope to see you there!

Today was mismatch Thursday, and we learned about REAL time in chapel. We learned that God is with us all the time and God is watching over us all the of time. He loves us that much!

“The Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.”
Psalm 121:8

All Open Arms children are invited to Our Saviors Way Lutheran Church this Sunday at 11:00am to sing “All in All,” a song they have practiced every day in chapel this week.

Here is a video of Ms. Jee leading this song in chapel this morning if you want to practice at home!

We hope to see you all here on Sunday, March 24 at 11. 😊

It’s Superhero/Disney dress-up day for Lutheran Schools Week, and we learned that Jesus is our real superhero! Check out some of the fun costumes from our students and teachers. We are God’s people, and He loves us all!

Today was wacky hair and hat day for Lutheran Schools Week, and some folks at Open Arms (like Pastor Justin) went all out! In chapel, we explored the idea of “places” and where Jesus lives. We learned that Jesus lives at our church, at our school, and in our hearts. His love is all around us!

It’s our first day of Lutheran Schools week, and all of our classes made bright and beautiful signs to bring to our daily chapels. Today, Pastor Justin told the children about the most wonderful book ever written: the Bible! The Bible tells us about Jesus and how much He loves us. It’s the greatest story of all!

Next week at Open Arms, we are celebrating being part of the Lutheran Schools system with themed lessons, creative activities, daily chapels, and fun dress up days. Check out our dress up days schedule and please participate if you can! We are looking forward to a fun week ahead!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! 🍀

From the teachers, children, and leprechauns at Open Arms 😊

Our chapel message this week was about how God made the mountains, oceans, trees, animals, and stars...but the most creative thing he made was US! God‘s ability to make us shows how wonderfully creative He is. And He made us creative too-we can paint, build with legos, cook, and play music. We should appreciate and enjoy the creative talents God gave us and use it to glorify Him! #openarmsccdc #preschool #chapel #godmademe

Bring a blanket and join us for a special movie night in the Big Room to kick off Lutheran Schools Week. Pizza and refreshments will be available to purchase, and you can pre-order pizza at the reception desks until Thursday. This is always a fun family event, and we hope to see you here for The Peanuts Movie!

Hope you are enjoying this beautiful almost-spring day! #openarmsccdc #oswlc #march #spring

There are snowflakes at Open Arms! Happy Friday!! ❄️ #openarmsccdc #preschool #snow

It’s Read Across America Week, and our students are enjoying Dr. Seuss books and activities. Look at all of the cats, fish, socks, things, and green eggs & ham! I DO like them, Sam-I-Am!

All of our Open Arms families are invited and encouraged to attend our weekly Lent services. Family services begin at 5:30pm and are followed by dinner at 6. There will be singing, drama, devotions, and activities for children of all ages. We hope to see you there!

Don’t forget to come have dinner with us at Red Robin (near Panera and Chipotle) TONIGHT, Tuesday, March 5th any time from 4-9pm. Make sure to mention “Open Arms,” and a portion of the proceeds will go towards purchasing butterfly kits for our classrooms. If you do not have time to sit down for dinner, you do have the option to order online and pick up. Just make sure that you mention “Open Arms” when you pick up your food. What better way to celebrate Fat Tuesday! 😊

Happy Birthday to a perennial preschool favorite: Dr. Seuss! #openarmsccdc #preschool #drseuss #readacrossamerica

The kids at Open Arms always love their weekly chapel time! Ms. Jee leads them in fun and interactive songs, and Pastor Justin gives a devotion based off of a Bible story. Last week, Pastor Justin dressed like a Roman soldier to tell the story of the centurion who trusted Jesus to heal his friend. The children learned that they can trust Jesus too, because He loves them so much. Jesus is our superhero! #openarmsccdc #preschool #oswlc #jesuslovesme #chapel

February is dental health month, and the children at Open Arms are learning about keeping their teeth strong and healthy. Thank you to Loudoun Pediatric Dentistry for visiting us today and showing the children the best way to brush their teeth!

At Open Arms, we are so blessed to have Ms. Lolita as our Spanish teacher. She visits each class once a week and teaches lessons in Spanish that match the curriculum themes. This week, she taught the children words for different parts of the body we use for our five senses: la boca (mouth), la nariz (nose), la piel (skin), la oreja (ear), and el ojo (eyes). And then they ended the class dancing to a fun song! Bueno!

Love is in the air at Open Arms! Happy Valentine’s Day to all of our families and friends. We love you! ❤️

Thank you so much to the students and teachers of Grace Place Sunday School for the sweet and lovely notes you left for the Open Arms students and teachers!

All of our classes at Open Arms go to chapel once a week to sing songs and hear a special message. This week, Pastor Justin told the children about how much Jesus loves them. The Bible tells a story about how Jesus was talking to some people when a group of kids approached and was turned away by the disciples. Jesus told the disciples not to turn away the children, but let them come to Him. He loved spending time with children while He was here, and He loves them today from Heaven!

If you are interested in our full-day kindergarten class for next year, make sure to stop by our Open House this Thursday, February 7, at 9 AM in the Owls classroom. If you are interested but cannot attend, please let Ms. Hena ([email protected]) know, and she can provide you with a packet of information.

Today our Owls class was enjoying independent reading in their classroom. Each child had their own book box with books that fit their ability, and they were reading the books aloud to a stuffed “friend.” It seemed as though the students and the friends were enjoying the books! 😊
