Of the 3 daycare centers that my 3 children have attended over the years, Loving Arms is hands down my top pick. My 5&1/2 year old started right when he turned 3 and my almost 3 year old started when she was 6 weeks old. The center has a very loving and caring atmosphere and I know my children are always being well cared for, from the baby room all the way through to the preschool room. Academically speaking they have learned so much-they are always bringing home interesting projects and artwork, and my 5 year old learned his letters and sounds so well that I've been able to teach him how to read at home! They are also excited to see their friends and teachers every day. But the real difference is in the Christian education my children are receiving. The kids love to sing bible songs and tell bible stories and they absolutely light up when they talk about Jesus! I highly recommend Loving Arms to anyone looking for high quality care.
