Our Philosophy

Open Arms Child Development Center provides first-rate preschool and childcare solutions to the families of Cassopolis and surrounding areas. We strive to create a loving, Christian environment where your child will be encouraged to learn hands- on experiences. We understand the importance of these early years and our staff is focused on the miracles of each child. Open Arms will provide a developmental approach using High Scope curriculum that will enrich the spiritual, personal, social, academic, creative, and physical development of young children.


Our Approach

We have a developmental approach when planning age-appropriate activities for the developmental skills and knowledge in the following areas: fine and gross motor skills, social and emotional development, physical health and development, language and literacy, mathematics, creative arts, science and social studies. All activities are hands-on learning experiences.

Children attend chapel on Tuesdays weekly with our pastor.
