My daughter has been attending Open Arms for almost 2 years now and I am so happy with the choice we made back when she was 2 to get her into their facility. The teachers are so sweet, they genuinely care for their students and their growth in education and human interaction skills. My daughter has learned and grown so much while being there, and the added comfort of the cameras being accessible by me during my workday is incomparable. The school is clean, secure, and staffed with the best of the best. The events they put on are always a hit, and the activities they do with the kids are always so cute and educational. Thank you to all the teachers who have been there to help my daughter grow so much!! Jimile the director is quick to answer any questions or concerns, and has been so accommodating to us and our family dynamic. Miss Daisy is the sweetest woman I have ever met, Chelsea, Kari, and seriously every single teacher even those who my daughter has not been in their class knows her and is always so sweet and attentive to the children.

This is a great school. The price is very reasonable, my kids love their teachers and I love that in about 5 clicks of my computer mouse I can watch my little ones while I'm at work!
