Calico Kids Preschool: Where learning is a great adventure!
Calico Kids Preschool is located in the Mayflower Congregational Church on Sioux City's west side and has been in operation for over 30 years. Although we are located in a church, Calico Kids Preschool is a non-religious based program and is open to all children.
The program at Calico Kids Preschool offers your child a safe, loving and stimulating environment appropriate for their skill level. Our program participates in Iowa's Quality Rating System (QRS) and has achieved and maintained a 5-star status for several years. Five stars is the highest level of quality that can be achieved. By receiving this status, we have verified that we provide a high quality care and education program for young children.
We also have partnered with Sioux City's Preschool Initiative Program to provide free preschool to qualifying four-year-old children. Preschool Initiative is a cooperative of preschool providers that are committed to high quality preschool services for four-year-old children in our community. Children who attend a Preschool Initiative classroom are guaranteed instruction from a licensed teacher who holds at least a bachelors degree in the area of preschool instruction. Additionally, a state-endorsed curriculum (Creative Curriculum) is used to prepare children for kindergarten. Our staff are highly trained and dedicated to providing a quality preschool experience for your child.
