Marita Theisen Childcare Center at Steeple Square is offering the preschool to 17 children, according to a press release.

It states that the preschool spots are provided through the Iowa Department of Education’s statewide voluntary preschool program.

The hours will be from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. Monday through Friday, with wrap-around care available during the center’s hours of 6:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
