Make the Transition Easier

On that first day you bring your child to the center, you may be nervous and your child may be too. Those first days in a new place and classroom can be challenging: for you and your child. We invite you to stop by anytime to observe your child's classroom and to help make her/his adjustment to new surroundings easier.

Opportunities to help:

Volunteers are always welcome! Please call the Children's Center at 563-242-2110 to learn more about volunteering.
