Caring Heart, Open Arms Childcare and Development Ministry provides year-round child care and preschool services for children ages 6 weeks to 12 years old. Serving Hobart, Indiana since 1993, Caring Heart, Open Arms has provided quality childcare and early childhood education services to the community.

Caring Heart, Open Arms Childcare and Development Ministry's purpose is to meet the developmental needs of children physically, cognitively, emotionally, socially, and spiritually. We embrace best practices in child development which states that children learn best through play and that play is children's work. We believe that hands-on learning creates an environment that helps children to enjoy the learning process and sets the stage for life-long learning. We respect the fact that the parents or caregivers are the child's first and most important teachers.
