Our History

Winterset Preschool and Childcare was established in April 2016 to provide quality and affordable child care for children ranging from 6 weeks to 5 years old. Our clean and loving environment was created to serve the local community by providing a safe and fun place for children to be cared for and educated.

Our teachers are led by our Director, Melanie Richards, who has over 20 years of experience in child care. She has been the Director of Winterset Preschool since 2017 and takes pride in the safe place we have created for children. All staff members are licensed through the Department of Children & Families and receive continuing education throughout the year to stay informed and improve their skills. They are also all CPR-certified for your child’s safety.

Our mission is to give your child the best preschool experience in a developmentally appropriate and loving way. We encourage learning by using all senses and forming friendships while growing together.

Safe & Secure Care

Your child’s safety is our most significant concern, which is why our facility is located in a prominent location, and our entrance is keypad controlled. Signing your child in and out is easy, convenient, and safe using our fingerprint-based electronic sign-in device.

Parent Information

In order to provide the safe and secure environment we do, we take all necessary precautions to sanitize our facility throughout the day. Other precautions include:

  • Having teachers wear masks and gloves.
  • Only having one parent enter the sign-in area at a time.
  • Taking temperatures.
  • Practicing safe-distancing.

We make enrolling your child easy with a simple downloadable application and information packet.
