Little Knights Learning Centers

North Cedar Community School District has been busy this summer with many new exciting changes. One of these changes is the addition to our daycare program in Mechanicsville. Formerly known as “Knights Club” for our school age children only, this program has now expanded into year round daycare with an infant room and toddler room as well. It is such a wonderful thing to be able to offer care for all ages now on both ends of the district. Our Mechanicsville infant and toddler rooms are now accepting new enrollments and still have availability. Our first opening day will be August 26, 2019. Maria Porter is the director for both Lowden and Mechanicsville Little Knights Learning Centers. If you have interests or questions about either one, you may contact her by email or by calling (563) 579.1644.

We will also be offering our 3yr old preschool program through the daycare to give our little ones that extra boost and ease them into the elementary and classroom setting. The 3yr old preschool program is available at Mechanicsville’s Little Knights Learning Center and at Lowden’s Little Knights Learning Center.
