Our Programs

At Loving Arms Children's Center, teaching your child is something we take very seriously. Children at LACC receive a solid Christian Education 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: Our Little Helpers work on identifying shapes, colors, pictures, and feelings. They also work on developing both small and large motor skills.
  • Three-Year-Old Program: In our Noah's Ark and Shining Stars classrooms, we continue to work on letter sounds, recognition, shapes, colors, patterns, and more! They also work on social skills that involve preliminary problem-solving and creating healthy social-emotional connections.
  • Four-Year-Old Program: In our Pre-K, Kids for Christ classroom, we continue to practice many of the skills started in the threes. Learning appropriate social skills is a high priority, so the children are prepared for Kindergarten.  Our curriculum for this age is based on 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 in the 2-year-old room and is learning something new every day 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."
