why arms of the king?
Where education meets unconditional love and learning meets fun
Arms of the King provides a safe, warm, structured, and nurturing environment for each child that walks through our doors. We encourage children to express their individuality in a myriad of ways: through music, arts and crafts, dramatic play, outdoor play, and more.
At Arms of the King, we strive to make quality education affordable and accessible to all. Our staff are committed to this goal and are constantly engaged in professional development. We greatly value the opportunity to partner with parents/guardians in guiding children through development.
