Open Arms Child Care

Lutheran Child Development Centers

6270 Merle Hay Rd

Johnston, Iowa


     At Open Arms we create an environment that brings  children and families closer to the Lord and to the full life He holds for each of us.

     There are two vital ingredients in achieving this purpose.  One is a family-life atmosphere and the other is high-quality care and teaching.  We are committed to creating such an atmosphere and providing this level of care and development.

     The center will care not only for the whole child, but also the family and the community.  Therefore, we will reach out to the families and community by offering a variety of needs-based programming; seminars and events designed to educate and to build communication and closeness.
