Mission statement


The members of Immanuel Lutheran Church are committed to providing children and families with an exceptional early childhood learning environment through Open Arms Christian Child Development Center where children and their families experience God’s unconditional love, inspiring them to grow, mature and thrive within a community of fully-devoted Jesus Christ followers.


It is our Vision...

  • To nurture every aspect of a child's development, while reaching out to the family and community as a whole.
  • To value each child as a unique and special child of God, encouraging his/her individuality and promoting his/her self-esteem.
  • To provide a balanced program that meets the spiritual, social, emotional, intellectual and physical growth of the child.
  • To value a child's play experience as an avenue of learning and provide a developmentally appropriate program for all children of any race, creed, nationality or ethnic background.
  • To provide a safe, stimulating, hands-on environment for children to interact with others and to increase in ability and knowledge within a small group experience.
  • To nurture the spiritual and professional development of our staff; thereby enriching their lives.
