Both of my kids have attended LOA since they were infants. My son is now in their K enrichment program and my daughter is in the 2's room. I can't say enough good things about this school. The staff is excellent and the programs are as well. My kids love this place and so do we. - Jessica, LOA Parent
We love this place, it's like a second family. The amount of learning is amazing! All of the staff are great with the kids (you only need to see the children's annual art show to see how well they are nurtured). I will be very sad when my son's time there comes to an end. Ellen the director offers such great "outside" activities too... piano lessons, soccer, Lego technology, ballet..... If you haven't checked it out you should!!! - Gretchen, LOA Parent
Outstanding group of educators who believe in creating a culture of learning and growth with Christ-centered foundation. - Jim, Educational Consultant
Please let my daughter's teachers know that we absolutely love them and Sofia had a blast her first week at Open Arms. It's unbelievable how much she has learned and the increase in her vocabulary in just a few short days! Open Arms has made the transition from at home daycare to school environment a whole lot easier for this Mama! :) - Megan, LOA Parent
"My two boys have been going to Open Arms since they were in the infant room. One is now in the private Kindergarten and the other in the 3 year old room. Both boys love to go to school...and quite frankly stall like crazy when it is time to leave. They always run to give me a hug but want to go back and keep playing!
They continuously seek feedback from their parents and have made positive changes based on recommendations; like improvements to the meals and snacks. Staff are friendly, open to suggestions, love the children and miss them when they are out.
We love the fun activities offered like beautiful artwork (our 'fridge is covered), chapel and great music thanks to Ms. Wendy. Lots of time to play outside and walks to the nearby park. Lots of fun seasonal activities, parties, programs and special visitors like magicians and animals. The curriculum and lesson plans for even the infants are detailed and keeps the children engaged and learning as they play.
One of my sons was sick often (the breast-fed one~ go figure!) as an infant the other was sick very little. Like any environment where there are a lot of children there is the potential for spreading germs. I think individual resistance plays a factor. I have seen staff taking appropriate health precautions at every developmental level. Having been exposed early on, the boys are rarely sick now (knock on wood).
I would definite recommend LOA to families looking for a warm, loving Christian care option." - Debra, LOA Parent
“We have had our children at LOA for 4 years. Our son is now finishing first grade in public school and is academically at the top of his class. Our daughter is in Pre-K and is reading and perfectly ready for starting Kindergarten in the Fall. We have been blessed with great teachers at LOA. Each of them truly cared about our kids, they were loving, patient and communicated constantly with us about their progress. They are always willing to partner with us to make our children's experience the most successful it can be, I would highly recommend LOA for families looking for a safe, loving and academically challenging environment!” – Ashley, LOA parent
Our son has been at LOA since August of 2012, we have had a wonderful experience there. He has had very loving and caring teachers in each of his classrooms. The teachers are always willing to take the time to answer any of our questions when we pick him up and keep us informed of what they are learning in class. The Biblical based values he is learning along with the academic learning has been a
blessing. We couldn't be happier with the care he is receiving each day. - Tammy, LOA parent
My daughter began attending Leesburg Open Arms at 6 months old back in November of 2009, and my son began at 4 months in April 2012. We could not be happier with the level of care that they receive on a daily basis. At this point, we have experienced almost every classroom and have left our children in the care of many different staff members, and we continue to be impressed. My children love to go to "school" and I am amazed every day at the things they are learning. As any working parent knows, daycare is a very difficult decision...it's so important to feel comfortable with the provider you choose and to know your children are being cared for in the best possible way while you are not able to do it. We feel blessed that our children are cared for and loved throughout the day and that we don't have to worry about them while we are away. - Melissa, LOA parent.

“I can’t say enough wonderful things about the love and care my son receives from his teachers. The transition starting the program wasn't easy for him, as he had been home with me, but the staff and teachers were always patient and loving. It is a wonderful program packed with lots of reading, singing, crafts…and lots of laughter.” –Mike, LOA parent
