ECE Waiting List Applications

Complete and Submit the Waiting List Application.

Dear Parent,

Thank you for your interest in the Iowa Western ECE Center, located on the IWCC Council Bluffs Campus. Our center serves the community and provides a laboratory setting for the college students enrolled in the Early Childhood Education courses. We are dedicated to providing quality early care and education services for children ages infant through five in a year-round program.

Through the use of Creative Curriculum Gold, we are building the foundation for learning through developmentally appropriate practices. We provide a positive atmosphere that will promote the social, physical, intellectual, and emotional growth of your child. Learning experiences are provided daily in an environment that promotes active, hands-on, discovery learning.

The center is licensed by the Iowa Department of Human Services and is staffed with degreed teachers with appropriate educational backgrounds and experiences. With college student interns we are able to maintain an excellent adult-child ratio. The center is accredited by the National Academy of Early Childhood Programs (NAEYC), having met the Academy standards for quality programs. U.S.D.A.-approved meals and snacks are served.

An open enrollment policy is observed. Children are accepted as space allows in the order in which the application forms are received. A $25.00 application fee is collected upon acceptance of the child. Parents are notified by letter and via email when a child is officially enrolled. A waiting list by date of application is maintained; vacancies are filled from this listing.

We encourage parents to tour the center and tours are available daily. If you have any questions or would like to visit our center for a tour, please call or send me an email.  I look forward to watching your child grow!
