Childcare Center and Preschool

Welcome to the Hills & Dales Childcare Center and Preschool! We are glad you are joining us and hope that our programs work well for you and your family. We believe that parents are the experts on their children. Our job is to supplement their care while the children are here with us. Open communication between parents and employees helps to develop and implement consistent expectations for the children. Since we are also individuals that are growing and changing, we welcome any comments and appreciate any suggestions that would improve the care we give.

Through the development of a preschool, childcare, and before and after school programming, all children and adolescents (0-18 years old), and those with and without disabilities, have the opportunity to learn and play in the same inclusive environment, therefore benefiting both groups.   No other childcare facility within Dubuque offers these opportunities. The programs and services at the Childcare & Preschool Center are currently supporting 94 infants and children, and will become self-sustaining with the potential capacity of 130 children and adolescents.

The Hills & Dales Childcare Center possesses a Level Five on the Quality Rating System. The QRS was developed to raise the quality of child care in Iowa, to increase the number of children in high-quality child care settings, and to educate parents about quality child care.  By participating in QRS, Hills & Dales demonstrates a desire to improve the quality of care and education the children receive.

The Childcare Center is located in the Hills & Dales Community Center behind Kennedy Mall on Stoneman Road.
