Parents, we will be monitoring the weather situation throughout the day. We currently do not expect an early closure, but please know that Open Arms follows the Fulton County School District for school delays and/or closings. ​Everyone is encouraged to use their best judgment when assessing their ability to travel safely to and from Open Arms. Safety is always our primary concern.

Please listen to or watch one of the major radio or television news stations, monitor the Open Arms website or the Open Arms Facebook page for any change in information. Thank you!

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.

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 ahead for an appointment.

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