Calico Kids Preschool is located in the Mayflower Congregational Church on Sioux City's northwest side and has been in operation for over 30 years.  Although we are located in a church, Calico Kids is a non-denominational, non-religious based program and is open to any child regardless of race, creed, nationality, or denomination. 

The program at Calico Kids Preschool offers your child a safe, loving and stimulating environment appropriate for their skill level. Our program is based on "Creative Curriculum" and encourages social, physical, intellectual and emotional development in a fun and loving atmosphere.  Calico Kids Preschool participates in Iowa’s Quality Rating System (QRS), follows the Quality Preschool Program Standards (QPPS) and is part of the Sioux City School District’s Preschool Initiative Program. The Teacher/Director holds a bachelor's degree in elementary education and a master's degree in early childhood education and all staff are trained in CPR and First Aid, Basic Health Practices and Mandatory Reporting.

At Calico Kids Preschool, we believe parents are an important part of the education process.  We encourage parents to visit the school at any time and to share ideas or suggestions that could improve their child's development.

Calico Kids Preschool has earned a 5-star status through the Quality Rating System (QRS).  This is the highest level of quality that can be achieved.  By receiving this status, we have verified that we are providing a high quality care and education program for young children.
