Child Development Center 2017-06-06T19:21:44+00:00

Our Child Development Center is one of the largest, single-owned centers in the state of Iowa with a licensing capacity of 242 children. Yet, each child receives loving attention and is valued for the unique person they are.

Our team members are committed to caring for your children based on biblical standards, attitudes and values. Our children’s parents say they are able to see the positive impact of sending their children to a Christ-centered facility. We work hard on having open communication and positive relationships with our students’ families.

Your child’s safety is always top prioirty. Among other things, we use a key fob security system for parents to gain access to the building.

In all of our classes we offer:

  • Chapel in the form of Bible stories and devotions.
  • A complete curriculum starting with our infants and continuing through our preschool-age children, including work with large and small motor skills, letter, number and color recognition, writing, life lessons and much more.

Ages

We accept children from 6 weeks of age through those entering 7th grade and currently transport school-age children up to 5th grade to and from 9 different schools in Des Moines and Urbandale. Our school-agers have a fun chapel after school once a week, which includes songs and a message.

During the summer months, school-age children enjoy a complete curriculum, which includes math, reading and science enrichment along with daily field trips.

We are open Monday through Friday, 6:30am – 6:00pm. With inquiries about openings or to schedule a tour, please contact a member of our leadership team listed below:
