About Casa de los Niños Early Childhood Learning Center: Iowa is a leader in the movement to improve early learning opportunities for all children. Yet, as access increases and quality standards improve, Latino children continue to lag behind in school readiness, and subsequently in academic achievement. Greater access for Latinos will reduce the significant achievement gap that exists. This gap is certain to become more critical as the Latino population grows. Effectively addressing the needs of Latino children requires a deliberate, well-informed process.
The mission of Casa de los Niños, Davenport, is to provide high-quality, developmentally
appropriate, bilingual educational experiences for children ages 3-5 years. Casa de los Niños staff believes that early childhood education is vital to a child’s success and strives to provide an environment where all children are nurtured to reach their full potential.
