Frog Street provides intentional age-appropriate instruction that is aligned to federal and state standards. Their comprehensive, research-based programs integrate instruction across developmental domains and early learning disciplines.



(6 weeks - 12 months)
Our trained staff will provide your baby a loving, safe, and enriching environment. Our Infant Curriculum encourages creative expression and language development by the use of songs, and interactive finger-play.  Parents receive a daily report on feeding and nap times.

Toddler 1

(12 - 18 months)
Because children learn best if they are in a stimulating environment, music, stories, outdoor play, and learning simplicities envelop much of the day. Parents receive a daily report on meals, nap times, toilet training, and activities.

Toddler 2

(18 - 24 months)
In the Toddler 2 class, we continue to develop and reinforce the skill sets learned during Toddler 1.  Our caregivers are dedicated in helping each child develop these skills through a trusting and loving relationship. Parents receive a daily report on meals, nap times, toilet training, and learning.

Young Twos

(2 - 21/2 years)
Young Twos continue to grow in skills while learning to manage their need for independance. We help them do that with loving guidance and a curriculum geard to their specific needs. Parents receive a daily report on meals, nap times, toilet training, and accomplishments.

Young Pre Class

(21/2 - 3 years)
In our Young Pre program your child will experience a blend of freedom and discipline in a space specifically designed for his or her optimal development.  


(3 - 31/2 years)
In our Pre-1 program your child will experience intentional instruction in key areas of development so they can effectively continue on the path to Pre-K. 


(31/2 - 4 years)
In our Pre-2 program the most important function is to provide children with an early and general foundation that includes a positive attitude towards school, inner security, and a sense of order. 


(4 years and up)
Our Pre-K program is a comprehensive, research based program that integrates instruction across developmental domains and early learning disciplines. It is engaging and effectively prepares your child for kindergarten. 


Janet Lewis has been Director of the Child Development Center since 2016.  She is a member of Open Arms Church and is known for her kindness, joy, and peaceful demeanor.  We are blessed to have her lead our center staff.
At Open Arms CDC, our teachers are passionate about your child's growth and development.  Our low teacher-to-student ratios allow teachers to focus on the individual learning styles and needs of each child.  Our goal is to ensure that your child will be introduced to every aspect of learning in their formative years, so they are prepared for the future.

We are very proud of our excellent staff.  Teachers, director and support staff are required to complete on-going training through state classes, orientation videos, and in-house training.   Every staff member undergoes a thorough background check and is trained in First Aid and CPR.

We invite you to stop by to meet us.  We would love to have your family join ours!
