"Where We Welcome your child with open arms"

Open Arms Day Care programs value and respect all families. We recognize the family’s role as the first and most important teachers, and honor the right and responsibility of each family to be active partners in their child’s education. Families are provided multiple opportunities for involvement in our programs, strengthening our relationship and enhancing the early childhood experience.


Programs Are Based On Developmentally Appropriate Practices.

Open Arms Day Care programs are based on developmentally appropriate practices and promote a climate of acceptance for all children. The program is structured to enhance children’s feelings of comfort, security, self-esteem and development of positive relationships with adults and with other children. The use of positive guidance techniques, enhance children’s development of self-control, responsibility compassion and respect for self, others and the environment.

Wide Variety of Activities in which children explore their environment

We provide a wide variety of activities and materials in which children explore their environment, creatively express themselves, develop skills at their own pace and interact with other children and adults.

Based on the Creative Curriculum Model, we provide a warm, stimulating, and multi-sensory environment that promotes child initiated activities and choices. Our programs allow the children to pursue their personal interests, explore and manipulate many aspects of their environment, solve problems and interact positively with other children and adults. The daily schedule gives children a sense of control over the events of the day by providing a consistent routine that enables children to anticipate what happens next.

The daily routine/ schedule is predictable, yet flexible

The daily routine/schedule is predictable, yet flexible enough that it allows the children the opportunity to explore and learn in a meaningful way. The daily activities we do enhance learning through creative expression (art), dramatic play, discovery (science), math, music and creative movement, literature, language and motor development. Activities are balance between free choice activities and group experiences that stimulate and challenge their young minds and bodies. Outdoor play opportunities allow children to climb, run, jump, swing, ride, dig, and explore nature.

Every child has a different learning style and pace. Each child is unique not only capable of learning, but also capable of succeeding.

About us

Open Arms Day Care first opened its doors in June 2013 in an 960 square foot home. We have grown tremendously and have moved two more times to accommodate our growing families. We are pleased to serve our families and our community.

Open Arms is a Family Owned Day Care that is dedicated to creating an environment that will nurture the inherent curiosity of infants, toddlers, preschool, and school age children. We are committed to providing a safe, caring, and academic environment for our children. Our goal is to provide your child with opportunities to explore their environment while preparing them for the world around them.

We have programs for newborn to 12 year old children.

We are open 24/7 (excluding major holidays.) Provide transportation, tutoring, and before and after school care.


The first year of your infant’s life is a busy one that includes taking huge strides when it comes to his physical, social, and emotional development. Open Arms Day Care is dedicated to creating a nurturing and safe environment for your infant to grow.

Daily assembly time is a fun and engaging time for your toddler to learn the importance of being part of a group. It sharpens your child’s social skills while also providing him with rich educational experiences through songs, stories, and dance.

Two year olds want to learn, explore, and question, while also show us their growing independence. Our two year old teachers guide your child through learning new math, science, and literacy concepts as well as developing self help skills such as potty training.

Open Arms Day Care is dedicated to creating an environment where your child can be successful. Our preschool program consists of a combination of a plethora of developmentally appropriate materials and experienced educators who are committed to furthering education.

We assist the school aged children and partner with their parents to ensure success in and out of school throughout their school career. We also have an after school program where we help with homework and offer tutoring to those who need it.
