Dedicated to nurturing
Christian hearts and building strong minds
At Loving Arms, we recognize the importance of a high-quality Preschool with extended childcare program and we are privileged to provide a unique childcare center that offers a strong Christian education with academic excellence. Jesus is a part of everything we do here at Loving Arms! We give Him thanks and learn about Him through the Bible stories we share with the children.
At Loving Arms Children's Center, teaching your child is something we take very seriously. Children at LACC receive a solid Christian Education married with academic excellence in our Preschool program. LACC is one of the only Christian centers in the metro area. Each classroom works to help children learn at their age level and prepare them for the next class.
- Two Year Old Program: The two year old's work on identifying shapes, colors, pictures, and feelings. They also work on developing both small and large motor skills.
- Three Year Old Program: The three year old's work on letter recognition, calendar, shapes, colors, patterns, and more! They also work on social skills that involve sharing and preliminary problem-solving skills.
- Four Year Old Program: The four year old's continue to practice many of the skills started in the three's. Learning appropriate social skills is a high priority, so the children are prepared for Kindergarten. They also learn letter sounds, blends, and beginning word recognition. Our curriculum for this age is based upon the Kindergarten Readiness criteria used in Johnston, Des Moines, and Ankeny Public Schools.

We started at LACC when our son was 7 months old. As he transitioned through the infant/age 1 classrooms he continued to grow and love his teachers and classmates. He’s now on the 2 year old room and is learning something new everyday and sharing it with us. The staff is patient, caring, and accommodating to his food allergies. LACC encourages growth and learning not only academically but also spiritually.
