What the parents say!
"My husband and I decided to check out Open Arms because we lived in the neighborhood and read very positive reviews. After meeting Misa, the teachers and visiting the school, our decision was made.
Before attending Open Arms she was very shy, and introverted and after attending Open Arms her first year @ age 3, we saw a major shift in her personality. She became more outgoing and really loved Open Arms, she looked forward to going daily. She made friends easily and talked about her days when she got home. She adored Miss Vicky and Miss Isabel as well as all the teachers.
We have been blessed to have her attend Open Arms and only wish it can continue through her elementary school years. My husband and I would highly recommend Open Arms for your child. We had such a positive experience and Devon is very sad she will not be returning next year, as she is off to Kindergarten.
We want to sincerely thank the Open Arms staff for making her experience in preschool a very positive one (and ours)."
