Annual Closings
 If you have any feedback on how we can make our new website better please do contact us. We would like to hear from you.

During the winter months, we follow the Iowa City Community School District (ICCSD) for winter weather cancellations.  If the schools are closed for weather, we will be closed.  If the schools delay start for 2 hours, we will delay and open at 9:00am.  If schools close early for weather, we will close early.  All children should be picked up at or before 4:00.  School cancellations are broadcast on TV, radio, and on KCRG/KWWL’S web sites.  Please check them often, situations can change quickly during winter storms.  You may call the center any time – 319-337-8980 – if we don't answer, the closing announcement will be on our voice mail.
