Our goal is to provide a quality experience for every student
Stella Sanford Childcare is owned and operated by the Crittenton Center.
At Stella Sanford Childcare, children are exposed to many fun and wonderful things. We follow a blend of Creative Curriculum and High Scope. Through play and planned experiences, teachers provide opportunities for children to “take in” the environment around them. We use the high scope Child Observation Record, to assess and track the growth of our students throughout the school year.
We pride ourselves in offering a quality childcare program. Our staff are trained in all areas of developmentally appropriate practices. Our teachers are licensed by the state of Iowa to teach in an early childhood setting. We maintain student-to-teacher ratios, well within state guidelines.
It is our goal to provide a well rounded experience for every student in our classrooms. We not only teach “the basics” but also the extras like social/emotional development, self-help skills and conflict resolution.
