Current Openings and Registration


Little Lambs
infant & newborn's

These littlest among us are so very precious. We strive to support the needs of both infants and parents in this space. Each infant is unique and their needs may vary. We work to collaborate with parents to be as supportive and helpful as we can.

***Spaces are limited in this room. Call for current openings.***


Blessed Beginners
"crawlers"

Once infants begin to roll over, crawl, and cruise they will move into this space to support their needs for mobility and movement. We continue to keep ratios low at this developmental stage so that each child can get all the guidance they need.

***These spots fill up fast. Call for availability. 12/02/2023***

Little Blessings
12-24 months

Here we have our toddlers! So much happening in their busy lives at this point in development. Now they are climbing, running, and constantly curious about the world around them. In this room, more sensory options are given as well as plenty of big and small motor movement experiences. 

***Currently full as of 12/01/2023***

Little Helpers
2's and young 3's

This is our 2-year-old classroom. Here children take up big steps onto a larger space, more sensory options, and lots of big and small motor movements. This high-energy group is all about practicing healthy connections with teachers and one another.

***We currently have openings in this room as of 12/01/2023***

Shining Stars Preschool
ages 3-4

Here we strive to support healthy social and emotional guidance, hands-on learning, and practical life skills needed for these Shining Stars to move on towards their next big adventure.  We follow a structured flow and gently integrate scripture into each lesson.

Kids 4 Christ Pre-K
4's & 5's

Here we support those children who are only one year away from entering kindergarten and are 4 years old. In this space, our goal is to ensure they have the social, emotional, academic, and self-regulation skills they will need as they move up in their education experiences.

"Thank you to all of the wonderful staff at Loving Arms. They greet us with a smile every morning, and they deeply care for my child. It makes it much easier to drop him off every day when I know he is cared for and loved. I highly recommend Loving Arms to anyone looking for employment and a great place to care for your child! Thank you for all you do."
