From Our Director:

Welcome to the Grinnell Community Daycare & Preschool! This center has a long, established daycare tradition since 1969. Our unique & interesting history illustrates the deep commitment of the people of Grinnell to our center. Our center is an example of what can be achieved for the children of this world when a community gives its very best effort to support the education and care of its children. We are so fortunate to have a facility that offers beautiful classrooms, an early childhood pool, and full gymnasium.
I have been working with children since 1996 as a preschool teacher and as a director of a childcare and preschool. Our staff is made up of college-educated teachers and trained aides who are chosen for their dedication, caring and responsibility. We know how precious your children are to you and want to create the best environment that we can while they are at our center. We recognize and value the uniqueness of each child at their own level of development and serve the children of Grinnell and the surrounding areas with love and care.
