Color My World child Care and Preschool was established in 1998 by Peggy Eilander. A single mother of 2 who's goal was to create a center that was committed and dedicated to providing a healthy, safe nurturing environment to the children of this community.
It is our goal that each child matures physically, mentally, emotionally and socially. The activities at Color My World are designed to enhance self-esteem and positive feelings toward learning.
Our Business Hours are Monday-Friday, 6:30am to 6:00pm.
Color My World is currently working with United Way of Central Iowa Women's Leadership Connection. Working with the United Way team opens opportunities for us to have a whole new set of resources available for us when we need them. They also help provide developmentally appropriate toys and furniture to our center along with everyday supplies. We are also more aware of the training opportunities they have to offer our staff so that we can use our knowledge and experiences to give the best quality care for the children.
The teachers at Color My World are responsible for taking training that not only meets the state guidelines but excels it. With the training we receive we are able to provide and implement the best practice in child care. The United Way team also provide resources such as a visiting nurse that comes out to see that we are practicing in a healthy environment, we also have an infant/toddler specialist and a preschool specialist who come out to monitor our classrooms to make sure we are all using best practice techniques,and a mental health specialist to help assist us with children who may have difficult behaviors with parent consent.
