Open Arms new Director and staff have grown this program into one of the very best in the Twin Cities. Having raised two sons I can confidently say Open Arms is one of the most complete and advanced early childhood programs when it comes to preparing children for kindergarten and beyond. The staff are all absolutely first rate and the most highly trained, conscientious, loving, attentive and caring individuals; its an absolute joy to see them interact and work with children. They utilize individual and comprehensive development plans for each child with a progress tracking system to keep parents informed daily. A beautiful state of the art facility with the latest in curriculum and learning materials. If you want your children of 6 weeks to 5 yrs in age to be in a safe vibrant facility with some of the most highly educated, successful and talented teachers and staff that provide the very best programs and opportunities for development and kindergarten preparedness then I encourage you to not walk but run to Open Arms Christian Early Childhood Center (there spots fill up fast and you will want to beat the waiting list)...its where your child will get the best of a loving home school environment.
