The Best Child Care in Iowa

Lil' Cubs Child Care Center and Preschool

Laughter, learning and fun are important elements in a child's world. We believe that while the children are laughing and having fun, they are also learning by enhancing their physical, social, emotional, communication, and intellectual skills.

Classrooms

Our programs are available for children aged six weeks to 12 years old. Lil' Cubs has 11 total classrooms spanning across our 12,000 sq foot building. Each room has it's own private bathroom (except for six weeks - 12 months), plenty of room for play time and learning. All staff are first aid certified, CPR certified, have adequate personal references, adequate educational credentials, passed a criminal background check, and has no history of child abuse or neglect.

Lil' Lambs (6 weeks - 6 months)

This classroom is very spacious for the infants to enjoy tummy time on a mat, swings, bouncy seats and bumbo seats.  Each Lil’ Lamb will have their own crib for quiet times and will enjoy the rockers for cuddle time. Each classroom at Lil' Cubs has at least one camera to help promote safety among our children.

Cuddle Bugs (6 months - 1 year)

This classroom is very spacious for the infants to enjoy tummy time on a mat, swings, bouncy seats and bumbo seats.  Each Cuddle Bug will have their own crib for quiet times and will enjoy the rockers for cuddle time.

Tiny Turtles (1-1½ years)

The Tiny Turtles is a cozy classroom for children the age of 12 months to 18 months.  In this classroom the children begin to become more independent by playing in different centers, going outside, eating in the eating area and sleeping on a cot.  The children have a daily schedule that they follow and start making friendships with the other children.  The Turtles enjoy music time, arts and crafts, circle time and center time.   

Lil' Ducklings (1½-2 years)

The Lil' Ducklings classroom is located in the "pond".  The pond is a spacious classroom where the children are able to utilize the carpeted space, tile area and also begin potty training.  This classroom shares it's space with the Tiny Tadpoles but is separated from each other by a wall divider and half walls. 

Tiny Tadpoles (2-2½ years)

This classroom is also located in the "pond" where it shares space with the Lil' Ducklings.  In the Tadpoles the children have really dove into potty training, circle time, Nevada's Story Time from the Public Library, outside time, eating snacks and meals in the commons and utilizing the carpet area and tile area.  The Tadpoles are a great step to get ready to move to the Busy Bees classroom.

Busy Bees (2½-3 years)

This classroom has defined centers where the children can go and play.  There are defined centers such as a home center, block center, cars and baby dolls all are covered in carpet flooring for a warm atmosphere.  The Busy Bees will have arts and crafts, book time, singing and dancing, quiet time and their own playground with age appropriate toys. 

Honey Bears (3 years)

During the school year, the children will attend preschool which is included in the weekly tuition. The Honey Bears have a daily schedule which consists of free play, circle time, center time, arts and crafts, quiet time, books and music, educational games and plenty of outside time for development of large motor skills. This classroom also has their own male and female restrooms and direct access to the outside playground. 

Wallabies (4 years)

The Wallabies will attend preschool during the day and venture out of the center on several field trips during the year.  There are centers set up so that each child is able to move around the room and explore on their own. This class room has it’s own bathrooms and access to the age appropriate outside area. 

Monkeys (5-12 years)

This is an excellent space for the school-age children to complete homework, hang out and make new friends.  This classroom will be opened for children who attend the public school and will be staffed on late start, early outs, teacher in-service days and full day care including summer and vacation days.  No worries about finding childcare—we’ve got you covered.
