Three Centers. One Mission: To offer a premier childhood development experience that is faith based, educational, and affordable.

Loving Arms, Praise and Play and Discovery Hill provide a loving and nurturing environment for your child because we believe that God loves and nurtures all people. Our faith teaches us that every child is special, unique, and worthy of love and acceptance. Both centers enable children to enhance their physical and cognitive development through a child-centered, safe environment.

We offer care for children from 6 weeks to 5 years old. We also are pleased to offer summer and off-day care for children ages 5-10.

Meet the Director

Hi! My name is Chris, I am the director of Loving Arms and Praise and Play Childcare Centers.

I have 35 years in the childcare field. After running an in-home daycare for over 15 years, I have spent the past 17 years as a teacher and director.  I have 4 wonderful children and 9 beautiful grandchildren that I absolutely adore.

In my free time I love the calmness of being by the lake as well as the thrill and excitement that comes with being a #1 Vikings fan! I adore working with children and would love to tell you more about the premier programs we offer at our centers or answer any questions that you might have!

Please do not hesitate to call or email!
