Clubhouse Learning Center is available to provide full-time care (4-5 days), part-time care (3 days), before and after school care (including transportation) and a school age summer/break program. Our educational daycare program, voted as one of the best in Ankeny, encourages an excitement for learning while allowing your child the opportunity to grow and learn in their own individual way.
Children’s “Learning Through Play” approach reflects a cycle of awareness, exploration, inquiry, and utilization. We believe that during play a child learns to explore their world, discover how to get along with others, test their skills and muscles, try out new ideas, and feel competent enough to try new activities.
Daily activities will combine both child-initiated learning centers, such as: Blocks, Dramatic Play, Toys and Games, Art, Library, Discovery, Sand and Water, Music and Movement, as well as, Outdoor Play; and teacher-initiated learning centers, such as; Group Time, Story Time, Small Groups, Special Activities, Cooking and/or Computers.

Our infant program is designed to form a positive trusting relationship with each child and family over time by offering consistent care giving from day to day so each child may develop social attachments. Feeding, diaper changing, and naps will be addressed on an “on demand” basis to encourage that trusting relationship. The infant curriculum will encourage growth and development by showing excitement and joy when a child makes a discovery or accomplishes a task and allowing for individual and small group activities. Daily observations will be observed and documented to provide opportunities for individual learning styles and temperament.
Little Tike Classrooms
Our curriculum will encourage tasks and challenges especially designed for toddlers’ physical, cognitive, social/emotional, and language development areas as they use their senses to gain a sense of security, identity, and to explore the people and objects in their world. Our experienced and educated Teaching Staff promise to provide a loving environment and share the highs and lows of each and every day by experiencing with them the excitement of new discoveries!
Big Tike & Preschool Classrooms
Our curriculum is designed to provide a wide variety of age appropriate learning experiences that are engaging to preschool children and fit to their individual learning styles. Our experienced and educated Teaching Staff will provide a loving environment that recognizes each child’s individual style and abilities, as well as, encouraging them to succeed as learners.
The Clubhouse Pre-Kindergarten Curriculum provides a strong foundation for skill development in language, social-emotional, and cognitive ability. The curricular components of the program ensure that the children are afforded an excellent foundation for kindergarten.
Before and After School Care
The Clubhouse offers before/after school care for your school age child including drop-off and pick-up at local Ankeny elementary schools. After picking up your child from school, we will provide a snack. After snack they will get to have free play at learning centers before going outside to run off their energy.
Summer Programs for School Agers
When the school age children are on break, we like to keep them busy. Our summer program is filled with lots of fun and exciting field trips on a daily basis.
