Guide to the Best Preschools in the Quad Cities

quad city preschools

Starting school is a huge milestone. For stay at home moms, many of us choose to start with a Mommy’s Day Out type program and then look for a Quad City preschool as the child gets older. We working moms need to start with a quality day care program, add toddler programs, and then enter their child into  our fabulous options for Quad City preschools.

However you enter the school setting, it’s daunting to choose where to send your precious child for the day! Thankfully the Quad Cities has many excellent preschools from which parents can choose. Each has its unique benefits and advantages, so it’s important to investigate carefully.

The Quad Cities Moms are happy to provide you with this valuable resource, and we hope it makes your decision making process an easier one. 

The  Quad Cities Preschool Directory is sponsored by our featured preschools. We so appreciate the support of the community and the opportunity to present our readers with valuable resources such as these.

Our wonder-based classroom is inspired by the child-led, inquiry-based learning of the schools in Reggio Emilia, Italy. Our students are capable and competent learners ready to engage the world. The Quad City preschool classroom meets the demands of these inquiring minds by providing an environment rich in investigations and challenges that provide them opportunities to examine and discover their learning by incorporating empathy, respect, and community through collaboration.

    Our Purpose
    “To Provide learning experiences to develop the students’ spiritual, intellectual, social, physical, and emotional potential.”

    Four and Five Year Olds…


    Each member of our staff understands the importance of laying a good foundation for your child’s success in elementary school. We will guide each child’s curiosity through early language experiences by using developmentally appropriate lessons and activities based on a strong phonics approach. We will teach the love of numbers through number recognition, we will help him to set spiritual goals and to learn biblical sound social behavior. The goal is to help children feel positive about themselves and about school. Extended learning such as special classroom guests and field trips also enrich each child’s experience.

    Three and Four Year Olds…


    In a loving, Christian environment, three and four-year-old children are encouraged and guided into a love of learning. Using a developmental approach, children explore to learn based on their unique interests and skills. Daily lessons at our Quad City preschool introduce math concepts such as number recognition, counting and patterning, early literacy skills beginning with letter recognition and sounds, creativity and problem-solving. Child-directed play strategies give children an environment in which to strengthen skills in expressing and regulating emotions and opportunities to make friends. Teachers provide support in thinking and making sense of a child’s world. It is our passion to nurture your child’s sense of curiosity and wonder to start them on a journey of a bright future.

    We provide:

    A fundamental curriculum
    Certified teachers
    Field trips
    Loving instruction
