Community Christian School: ‘This is huge’ — day care added
27 Jan 2019
A new day care center was recently added at Community Christian School, 2406 9 1/2 Ave. S.
According to Angila Moffitt, CCS principal, the day care center, called Little Crusaders Daycare, is the first faith-based day care-school combination in Fort Dodge.
“This is huge,” Moffitt said.
The day care opened Jan. 7. It serves infants through elementary-aged children before and after school.
The hours are from 5:45 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.
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.
