Accreditation and Programs

Quality Rated is a systemic approach to assess, improve, and communicate the level of quality in early education and school‐age care programs. Quality Rated assigns a quality rating (one star, two star, or three star) to early education and school‐age care programs that meet a set of defined program standards.

Welcome to Open Arms...

Our greatest gift is to be able to share the love we have received from Christ with the children in our care. Because of this gift, we view our role here at Open Arms as a sacred task. We value each child as a unique and special child of God – full of curiosity, love and untapped potential. What a privilege we have!

Where to place your young child for childcare is one of the hardest tasks parents face. We consider it an honor to team with you in the spiritual, social, emotional, physical, and academic development of your child.

Open Arms provides a warm, peaceful environment with Christian values and a well-rounded curriculum that nurtures self-esteem, emotional security, and independence.

We know the importance and value of meeting face-to-face with those people who will be caring for your “precious ones”.  We schedule tours of the facility, and face-to-face conversations with staff, every Monday through Friday between the hours of 9:30am and 11:30am.  Please call for an appointment.

Thank you for your interest in Open Arms Lutheran Child Development Center in Alpharetta.
