Let the Summer Fun Begin!

Theme Weeks

Exciting theme weeks include: Seussland, A Very Hungry Caterpillar, Full STEAM ahead, and many more!


Due to COVID-19, we will be creating "pool-like" fun at the center! Unfortunately, field trips have been removed from our schedule until further notice.

Reading Programs

Our fun reading incentive program fosters a life long love of reading. 


Get Creative! Our craft projects are a favorite activity for both the children and the staff.

Field Trips

Field trips are usually a fun way for us to learn and explore the Iowa City area. Due to COVID-19, we are removing field trips from our schedule until further notice.


Our t-shirts are usually designed entirely by the children. We will be keeping this tradition through a tie dye craft where children will create their own unique shirt!
