Community United Child Care Centers and Preschool serves children between the ages of 6 weeks
old through the summer following the child’s 4th grade. We are private, non-profit child development center that began in 1993.
Our partners are AEA 267,
Veridian Credit Union,
Cedar Falls Schools and Waterloo Schools. Parent representatives
are part of our Board of Directors. Our mission statement, "Partnering with families to nurture and educate tomorrow's leaders", explains how we view all our community children, as leaders in training.
Each year, more Cedar Valley's parents are beginning to understand
the value of quality Early Childhood Education for their children.
Working hand in hand with community leaders, parents have the
opportunity to help their children succeed in those crucial early years,
by enrolling and participating in the education process at Community
United Child Care Centers.
Community United Child Care Centers continues to believe that leading community representatives in a discussion about children, to enrich and be enriched, to learn from and to teach each other, allows us to maintain the quality your children deserve. Your children have a right to love, laugh and cry in a setting where differences are celebrated as avenues for growth.
Our centers are nationally accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).
