Director
I have been in the early education field in many different roles for a little more than 30 years. As the Director here at LACC,  I love being a part of the lives of each child who comes into our care. These are the years where they learn the most important skills, and I enjoy when they hit those "proud" moments and you can see them growing right before your eyes!

I enjoy spending time with my family and keep busy going to concerts, dancing, or just hanging out at home with my 2 dogs.  I love working here at LACC and hope you will reach out to me if you ever have any questions or concerns. Our goal each day is to learn, grow, and connect with those seeking a family style at a well-established faith-based center.

Cook

I'm Marsha, mom of 4, Grammy to 6.  I have been caring for children and adults for the past 30+ years.  I have held many positions in daycares, and I am currently the Loving Arms cook.  When I'm not working I like to spend time with my grandchildren, crafting, reading, and spending time at home with my 2 dogs.

AM Supervisor/Teacher - Shining Stars

I have always enjoyed working with children. Outside of spending time with my own families’ children, I spent almost 4 years working in a daycare center. Most recently I spent 9 years working with intellectually challenged adults but found myself missing my work with children. I have been with LACC since May of 2023 and hope to make this my "forever" work home. 

I love coffee, sushi, and spending time with my family. My favorite thing about working with 2 year olds is their curiosity and determination.

Hello! I am Miss Hannah and I have my Associate of Science Degree in Early Childhood Education. I have worked in this field in various childcare environments, including 2 in-homes where I was an assistant. I have worked as a professional in childcare for over 17 years. I joined Loving Arms in October of 2021 in the younger infant room, and I am excited to be part of this great team! I also completed my internship class at Loving Arms when I was working on my Associates Degree.

Teacher - Little Lambs
I have worked in childcare for over 15 years.  Outside of working for Loving Arms, I enjoy spending time with my family.  My husband and I have a daughter, a son, 5 grandchildren, and a dog named Jake.  We all enjoy camping and fishing during the summer.  When we are not camping and fishing, we love to spend time watching our grandchildren participate in basketball, soccer, and swimming.  I love my family!
"Our twin boys attended LACC from the age of 10 weeks until they graduated preschool.  We cannot say enough good things about the center and staff.  Both boys went to Kindergarten fully prepared and their teachers continue to comment on how well they are doing in school. The center worked not only on academic learning but also spiritual – Wednesday chapel services are still a favorite memory of theirs."
