CORONAVIRUS ALERT | We have immediate openings available for children of essential personnel workers.


Loving Arms is the best daycare in Stafford. The teachers are always happy and truly love the children. I feel so lucky that my boys go here and have no complaints. My oldest son used to go to another daycare and he was acting out because he was treated as a number. I moved him to Loving Arms and he has grown into a very confident and happy child. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants a place that cares about the kids.


I will be forever grateful for Ms. La Shawn and Loving Arms! When my son was struggling at a larger daycare center I came to Loving Arms by recommendation of another parent. In a time of stress and worry for my child, La Shawn eased my mind and opened her space and heart up to helping my son be successful in his classroom environment. He finished out the year wonderfully and I owe it to the loving, compassionate, patient, and family focused environment at Loving Arms. There is SO MUCH LOVE from the teachers and they have a special way of working with the kids that gave me such a sense of security and confidence each morning as I dropped him off. La Shawn goes above and beyond to provide the atmosphere and experience for our children that all parents hope for. As a family, Loving Arms was the best decision we made following our son's challenges at a larger center. He was not getting what he needed as an individual and the school didn't have the same mindset and willingness that La Shawn and Loving Arms has. We are forever grateful for all the love, patience, and compassion from everyone at Loving Arms! We will miss you next year and can't thank you all enough for helping our son get ready for Kindergarten.


We feel so blessed to have found Loving Arms Academy. Lashawn, the owner, is a gift to this community and to the families of Loving Arms. The staff is always welcoming and happy--yes, every single day! Our two little ones LOVE Loving Arms and ask to go to school on the weekends. The school's emphasis on love, respect, and community shows in everything they do. We will miss Loving Arms the most when we have to move away.

I love the academy my two-year-old is counting in Spanish already. He wakes up every morning asking for his Mrs. Shawn. The best daycare in Stafford.


Wonderful, loving, caring place for your little ones to thrive! I wouldn't trade any of them for anything. Best learning center in the Stafford area!


Loving Arms Academy is a wonderful preschool! There is a lot of love and happiness there!<3


The director of this new preschool, was my daughter's preschool teacher when my daughter was 2 years old. LaShawn is indeed a very loving teacher. She was always very sweet and attentive with Elena and also very helpful in potty-training her, which was wonderful. LaShawn also cared for my 4 children in my home at least once and even got them to do some picking up of their very messy rooms. She is an excellent caregiver and all-around terrific person!
