We are a family owned and operated center that leases space from the Ankeny Christian Church. Ankeny Christian Child Care has been a member of the Ankeny Community since 1997.
We are licensed through the State of Iowa, Department of Human Services; we are licensed to care for 145 children ages 6 weeks to 12 years of age.
Security is always an important factor in choosing child care for your children. We are a very secure facility with alarms on entry doors and security monitoring in all of our classrooms, our entry, and our large gym. The cameras capture the daily events and record to a DVR to be viewed at a later time if need be. We want you to feel at ease while you're at work knowing that your child is in a safe and secure environment.
We provide the children in our program with the basics of the Bible. We are non-denominational and do not teach any specific doctrine however, we pray before meals and before laying down to rest each day. Our children come together in the morning, from Baby Bear's (Toddler's) up to our Super Stars (Pre-K), to begin the day with singing a few Christian songs, a short Bible story and maybe even a short Bible related activity. We believe in teaching children to be kind, honest, respectful, and loving towards one another and this is one way to reinforce those teachings.
