Child Care and Preschool
- We offer full-time and part-time rates and sibling discounts.
- We are licensed by the Department of Human Services.
- We are part of the Iowa Quality Rating System through the state.
- We participate in the Child and Adult care food program, which enables us to provide healthy meals, at no additional cost to our families.
Our mission is to offer high-quality child care services for children 6 weeks to 12 years of age. Our ultimate goal is to provide an atmosphere that encourages a child’s self-esteem and confidence in order for them to be better prepared for life experiences and become life-long learners.
We believe that together, parents, families, teachers and child care providers create an environment that allows a child to grow, learn and develop a positive self-concept. We promote the development of the whole child's physical, emotional, social, and intellectual well-being.
We also strive to offer a high-quality preschool educational experience in our preschool program for children 3 years to 5 years of age.
Our preschool program spans 34 weeks of the year from September to May. We hold preschool from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday each week. Our preschool incorporates team teaching, which offers a wide variety of educational experiences for the children. We currently use one of the state-chosen curricula: Creative Curriculum.
We also work closely with the early childhood coordinator, to make sure we are teaching the same practices as the current kindergarten teachers, offering a balanced transition into primary school.
