The day care ‘crusade’
Saturday, January 12, 2019
Parents in the Fort Dodge community in need of child care services now have another option available to them.
Community Christian School, 2406 9 1/2 Ave S., recently announced the opening of its new day care center — Little Crusaders Daycare.
The day care opened Jan. 7. It serves infants through elementary-aged children before and after school.
The hours are Monday through Friday, from 5:45 a.m. to 6 p.m.
“This is huge,” Angila Moffitt, CCS principal, said.
According to Moffitt, the day care provides meals, outdoor time, and activities.
Kathy Dencklau, who had been providing child care from her home for more than 18 years, was hired to direct the day care.
“We had day care at our house on Friday and we packed up and moved and here we are,” Dencklau said. “It’s been a really good fit for us since that first phone call was made to help expand child care.”
According to Dencklau, every classroom within the school was shifted to make room for the service.
She said the staff was very understanding and accommodating.
