Open Arms Christian Early Childhood Center is a non-profit, Christian, early childhood program operated by Holy Emmanuel Lutheran Church of Bloomington, Minnesota. A Board established by the congregation oversees Open Arms.
Open Arms Christian Early Childhood Center offers to families a caring, non-judgmental, supportive environment. Children’s development is enhanced by opportunities that meet the individual needs of the whole child: spiritual, social, emotional, physical, intellectual, and creative. The lovingly secure, age-appropriate environment is culturally sensitive and encourages children to learn through their play.
Open Arms provides programs of full or part-time childcare operating year round for children ages 6 weeks through Preschool. Specific information can be found on our Infant, Toddler and Preschool program pages.
During the summer months, we offer School Age childcare for children Kindergarten through 7 years of age.
Open Arms offers several activities in addition to regular age-based care. These activities can be found on our Programs page.
