Open Arms Christian Preschool

Serving families in Bedford, MA and beyond since 1996

Open Arms Christian Preschool (OACP) has been providing a Christian learning environment since 1996. We believe that each child is a unique individual, and they are encouraged to develop at a comfortable rate of growth. Our curriculum provides guidance to promote seven areas of development — spiritual, social, emotional, physical, cognitive, language, and self-help skill. Our goal is to share the gift of Jesus’ word by providing a Christian learning environment and education for the children of our community.

Open Arms Christian Preschool is a ministry of the Lutheran Church of the Savior (LCMS), Bedford, MA.


OACP serves children aged 2 years and 9 months through 6 years. Toilet training status is not an eligibility requirement for enrollment.

Our program focuses on laying the foundation for reading and writing success by exposing students to letters and numbers, in-class reading and writing practice, and other activities.

Bible Literacy

As a Christian preschool, we use age-appropriate Bible stories in reading and writing activities, teach Bible-based morals and ethics, and participate in a pastor-led chapel service twice a month.

Math and Science

Kids love to mix and stir, especially when it bubbles and makes a mess! Students engage in play-based experiments to learn the fundamentals of how to explore the world around them.

Art and Music

We use art and music to help students develop fine motor skills, an appreciation for different types of self-expression, and the sheer joy of making things.
