About Loving Arms

Our Philosophy

We know that your child is your most precious gift.  We also know that God has given you, the parent, the responsibility with a promise – to “train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it,”  (Proverbs 22:6).  We believe that the best atmosphere for learning is one in which collaboration between home and school is strong.  It would be an honor to partner with you for your child’s growth.  Working with us, you will find a close-knit community for children to learn and grow in so many ways.


Loving Arms provides a program that focuses on the development of the whole child. Activities are chosen that encourage children to improve the abilities God has given them individually and as a whole. Here at Loving Arms we strive to create a program that allows children to explore the world and their interests through play and other meaningful experiences. We allow children free choice time to play exploring different areas in the classroom working on all developmental areas. We believe that children learn so much through play.

During other times of the day, teachers are guiding activities that help the children to grow in specific skill set areas using a variety of learning activities. Our teachers guide learning by being facilitators for children’s discoveries, experiences and questions. Teachers use curriculum’s such as Zoophonics and Everyday Math as resources to guide their planning for these activities. These activities include a daily circle time, investigations and projects, all designed to foster pre-reading and writing skills, mathematics, social studies, science and so much more. It is our goal that at the end of their time here our students attain the following skills:


  • To know what Jesus has done for us
  • To live a God-pleasing life because of what Jesus has done for us
  • To share the Good News of what Jesus has done for us with others


  • To develop large and fine motor skills

Special Program Days

Also included in our curriculum are special program days where children are provided special opportunities and experiences that they would not normally have in the typical school day. We try to integrate these special days as often as we can throughout the weeks. Here are some examples of special program days we have had during the year.
